This year, has been another excellent year of results, with A* the most common grade once again at A-level, as our pupils celebrated achieving a fantastic 360 of them. Incredibly, 66 pupils received A* grades in at least 3 A-levels. 

The proportion of grades at A*-B is almost identical to that achieved in 2019 before Covid when Brighton College was ranked 3rd in the UK by The Sunday Times, with 97% at grades A*B, and a phenomenal 46% at grade A*.

Nearly all pupils are going on to top universities – including 18 at Oxbridge and 14 at universities in North America.

At GCSE, a record 1,158 9s were obtained, more than ever before. 45 pupils, an equal number of boys and girls, secured at least nine grade 9s, with 24 gaining an incredible 10, 11 or 12 9s.

When we were chosen to be the UK School of the Decade by The Sunday Times, the school was praised for its environment of inclusivity. This nurtures intellectual and personal development, whilst also enabling academic excellence at all levels.

Through their own hard work, and the guidance and support of our dedicated teachers, our pupils achieve nationally outstanding results in external examinations.

Over the last five years, our results have placed us in the top 1% of schools in England.
