Record results

Our exam results have once again broken College records.

Our Sixth Formers achieved an incredible 97% A*-B in their A-level exams, reaffirming our place as one of the top schools in the country.

In this year’s GCSEs we’re thrilled that 9 is once again the most common grade at Brighton, with 93.93% of all grades at 9-7/A*-A. The Telegraph have ranked us as sharing the top spot in England for these results, among 2,000 co-educational schools.

Brighton College has recently been voted England's Independent School of the Year 2019 by The Sunday Times. The judges praised the school 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. We are the only school in Sussex to make it onto the top 50 of The Sunday Times' UK Top 100 Schools list.
