2023 GCSE Results

Brighton College Dubai pupils celebrate Outstanding GCSE results for third year in a row

Brighton College Dubai is delighted to announce that pupils achieved outstanding GCSE results for the third year in a row. This year all subjects were awarded numerical grades, with Grade 9 being the highest. Given how few of these were awarded worldwide, Brighton College Dubai is particularly delighted that 21% of the College’s grades secured this top-level at Grade 9.  

The highest grades in the College were awarded to Henry Fliss – a staggering 9 Grade 9s.  Given the well-publicised reduction in the awarding of the top GCSE grades this year and a well-reported reduction in grade boundaries moving back to 2019 levels, this is a first-class set of results for the chess champion.   

Jane Clewlow, Head of Senior School, Brighton College Dubai, said: “I am delighted with the performance of our third GCSE cohort.  For a year group that has struggled with disruptions to learning during the global pandemic and a well-publicised return to pre-pandemic grade boundaries from examination boards, this year’s results are even more impressive.” 

The outstanding GCSE results achieved by this year’s cohort are a true testament to the academic excellence that Brighton College Dubai is renowned for, as well as the exceptional teaching practices in place to support pupils. For the third time in its five years of operation, the young school has demonstrated that its pupils’ results are amongst the very best in Dubai.  

2023 A-Level Results

Brighton College Dubai celebrates a successful first-ever set of A-Level results 

Our first-ever cohort of A-level graduates is celebrating their impressive exam results, with three quarters of pupils achieving grades A* - B. The majority of pupils performed better than predicted and were able to secure places at their first choice of universities.  

 Joe Hall, Head of Sixth Form, Brighton College Dubai, said: “I am absolutely delighted with our very first set of A level results. The hard work and commitment of our pupils was never in question but given the turbulent past few years faced by the Covid generation, the challenge was greater than ever. By providing small classes, personalised support and a fantastic learning environment we have been able to help our pupils be the very best versions of themselves, both academically and personally. These results are testament to that effort.”

Given the worldwide uncertainty around examinations, this year has been a particularly demanding one and we do not underestimate the amount of effort that has been required from our pupils 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 from dedicated teachers who always go above and beyond. My warmest congratulations go to our excellent pupils and staff on these fantastic achievements!”
