Academic Results

"Brighton College is the leading co-educational school in England"
The Sunday Times.

Academic results are consistently the best in Sussex and the best of any co-educational school in England.

The improvement over the last seven years:

  GCSE A Level A Level
Year (%A*/A) (%A*/A) (%A*-B)
2006 64.4 49.0 78.0
2007 64.4 60.3 88.1
2008 69.8 70.7 94.2
2009 76.5 70.6 95.3

The exam results at Brighton College are truly outstanding. Although there are other schools with excellent results, there are no other schools in the country that have seen their results across both GCSE and A-Level (as measured by The Sunday Times in their Parent Power supplement) improve every year for the last seven years. This continual rise has taken Brighton College to 12th place nationally; by far the best results in the region and the best of any mixed school in the United Kingdom. In 2011, The Sunday Times described this as "an unparalleled achievement" and was one of the reasons why Brighton was declared England's School of the Year 2011-12 by the newspaper.

Brighton is the only school in Sussex to make it into the Sunday Times' UK Top 100 schools.

In 12th place this year, Brighton is ahead of many much more selective schools. This large improvement from entry at Year 7 or Year 9 to the final public exams is reflected in some of the best value-added scores in the country.

All of this is down to the school's recruitment and retention of truly outstanding teachers who inspire children here to achieve more than anyone thought possible.
