2020 GCSE Results

Brighton College Dubai celebrated its first ever GCSE results in March 2021. Our pupils Madeleine Cranitch and Ross Bannerman, secured a  highly impressive 100% Grade 9 in Mathematics GCSE exams. Owing to excellent teaching and learning at the College, pupils on average achieved 3.5 grades above the predictions given from their CAT4 tests taken when they joined the College.

Simon Crane, Head Master of Brighton College Dubai, said: “I am incredibly proud of the achievements of our first GCSE pupils who have exceeded their targets.  Given the worldwide exam uncertainty, this year has been a demanding one and we do not underestimate the amount of effort that has been required from both pupils and teachers who have had to adapt to a fluid learning style.

There is no doubt in my mind that Brighton College Dubai pupils have benefited enormously from a relatively uninterrupted education, with dedicated teachers who go above and beyond.  My warmest congratulations to our excellent pupils and staff on these fantastic achievements!  As well as being academically dedicated, our pupils have been involved in all other aspects of school life, including taking on wellbeing initiatives, sports and leadership positions.”
