Year 13s celebrated today as nearly half of grades being awarded were A*-B, and 100% of students at Brighton Girls passed their A levels. Ms McColl added: “I am proud of everything our students have achieved. This was a special cohort who will be remembered for the generous contributions they made, not only to the school community but to the wider community of Brighton and Hove. They have been great role models. Among those receiving results today were Raphaela Deas, who in addition to studying A Levels in Latin, Biology and Chemistry, was awarded the Lord Lingfield Medal of Achievement for her achievements within St John’s Ambulance and who also volunteered during the Covid vaccination programme as a patient carer and advocate. And  then there is Ruby Welch Nichol, who volunteered as a hospital befriender on the Stroke Ward while studying for A levels in Biology, Chemistry and Psychology. This sort of resilience and commitment to community during the tough years we have all been through, is what I am very proud of today.”

Brighton Girls students will follow a broad range of pathways as they move on, including Psychology, Law, Furniture and Product Design, Computer Science, Business Management, Paramedic Science and the Ancient World. In addition to gap year plans and art foundation courses, this year’s university destinations include the University of Sussex, University College London, and the University of Brighton.
