Top co-educational school in England!

Congratulations to all of our Upper Fifth pupils on their superb GCSE results.

In 2019, 94.49% of our examination grades were 9-7/A*-A. This is a record for the College, with The Telegraph listing us as sharing the top spot in England for our results - among 2,000 co-educational schools in the country. We’re enormously proud of our pupils for all of their hard work.

Highlights from this year include:

  • A staggering 900 9s
  • 9 is the most common grade at Brighton. The proportion of 9s is 48.9% (vs 4.3% nationally)
  • Out of nearly 2,000 GCSE exams taken at Brighton, not a single exam was failed

 

Head Master Richard Cairns remarked that: “We are thrilled with these record-breaking results. It is astonishing that the most common grade at Brighton is a 9, the grade reserved only for the top 5% of pupils in the country. As importantly, this is a year group that always had a good work-life balance, contributing hugely to dance, sport, drama, music and so much else.”
