Brighton College achieves the best ever A-Level results

Brighton Colleges in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain follow suit with exceptional GCSE results

Bloom Education’s partner, Brighton College – UK Independent School of the Year 2013 – has achieved the best A-Level results ever recorded by a British co-educational school, with over 100 pupils achieving A*s and As in every subject.

These exceptional results were followed by Brighton announcing its highest-ever number of A* grades at GCSE, with one pupil gaining the highest number of A* grades of any pupil in the UK. These results, announced last week, place Bloom Education’s partner school at the top of British independent schools, which are widely regarded as amongst the best in the world.

Both sister schools achieved similarly impressive results. Brighton College Abu Dhabi, the first of Brighton’s international schools to open, achieved the best GCSE results of any school in the Abu Dhabi Emirate. To add to this success, Brighton College Al Ain has achieved excellent early-entry GCSE results, with every pupil gaining an A* in Modern Foreign Languages. This is a wonderful set of results for both colleges as they seek to work together to further Bloom Education and Brighton’s aims of becoming the leading British-style independent schools in the Middle East. Both schools have also achieved the coveted title of being the highest ranked ADEC-inspected schools in the Emirate.

Sameh Muhtadi, CEO of Bloom Holdings, commented: “We are delighted to witness such great records achieved both by our partner Brighton College in the UK and by its two overseas schools, which lead the United Arab Emirates in their provision of a world-class education. We are proud to be working with such a prestigious name in British education and with its two sister schools, which are transforming the educational landscape in this city.”

Brighton College is renowned worldwide for combining academic excellence with a forward thinking and innovative approach to education. In both Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, the Colleges offer pupils a similarly creative and rigorous learning environment. Both overseas schools share identical values and ethos with their British counterpart that are further enriched within the dynamic cultural setting of the UAE. The two Brighton Colleges in the Emirate currently educate more than 2,000 3-18 year olds pupils in their two state-of-the art campuses.
