“Exceptional Outcomes in Extraordinary Circumstances”
Brighton Girls A Level Results 2020

After months of speculation and uncertainty, following the cancellation of public examinations in March, Brighton Girls today celebrated the achievements of our Year 13 leavers with the publication of A Level results. An incredibly strong cohort of students achieved a superb set of grades. Over 60% of grades awarded were A* or A and 25% of the year group achieved straight A*/As, including Rani (A*A*A*A* and A* in EPQ), who is heading to Queen’s College, Oxford, to read Philosophy, Politics and Economics; Eva (A*A*A*), who will take up her place at Newnham College, Cambridge, to read Archaeology; and Kiana (A*A*A and an A in EPQ) who has been awarded a scholarship to study Medicine at Leicester.

Rosie McColl, Head of Brighton Girls, commented: “This talented year group has achieved exceptional outcomes in the most extraordinary circumstances. Having undertaken the unusual process of submitting Centre Assessed Grades, which required us to scrutinise the way our students had performed throughout their two-year A Level courses, we were in no doubt about the significant academic abilities of this year’s leavers. I am delighted that, despite the difficult circumstances, the majority have been awarded the grades they deserved and are safely onto the next stage of their educational journeys. I wish to thank all the staff at Brighton Girls for the support they have given these students during their time at the school, and for the exciting enrichment opportunities they provided them during lockdown – it was great to see so many colleagues in school today to congratulate the girls on their achievements”.

Well done to the class of 2020 – a remarkable cohort in so many ways.
