They are incredible young men and women and richly deserve the fruits of their labours. Hard work really does pay off and this goes alongside the wonderful characters they have cultivated over their years here at Brighton. They are 100% ready for their exciting futures across the world. I am proud of them all.
Sophie Peat, the College’s new Head of Sixth Form said: ‘I am so proud of our Year 13 pupils this year and of this set of outstanding results.
