    BRIGHTON COLLEGE AL AIN PUPILS TAKE NEW GCSEs IN THEIR STRIDE

    Hot on the heels of A-Level results released last week, pupils at Brighton College Al Ain are celebrating after achieving excellent results in their GCSE exams. 34% of exams taken resulted in a top grades A*/9-8, and 54% of entries resulted in grades A*-A/9-7. The overall pass rate A*-C/9-5 was 90%. 

    Outstanding achievers include:

    Aalaa Hurriez                         three 9s and 5 A*s

    Sarah Johnson                       two 9s and 5A*s

    AbdulMohaimen Ismail          two 9s and 4A*s

    Tarek Aly Marouf                    four 9s and 2 A*s

    Headmaster Dr Ken Greig said: “These results are an important first step for our pupils and they have taken it with confidence. We tend to focus on the high achievers but there are great results throughout the year group.

    It’s also great to see how so many of this year group have also been heavily involved in a range of extra-curricular activities such as Sport, Music, Drama and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award while continuing to work hard for their GCSEs.  I wish them every success as they embark on their A level courses in September.” 

    Rebecca Haworth, Deputy Head (Academic) said: “I am really impressed with dedication and commitment pupils have shown despite the pressures of new demanding GCSE courses.

    This year group has particularly stood out as a group that has worked collaboratively to support and encourage one another throughout the whole GCSE course. The positive results are here for everyone to see and I look forward to seeing pupils build on this during their A Level studies here at Brighton College Al Ain.
