Students and staff at Brixham College are celebrating today as they receive their GCSE grades.

At Brixham College, we are delighted with the performance of our students this year.

The 2023 cohort have returned to the normal challenges of examination expectations following a significant period of disruption on their educational journey.

The College is pleased to see a year of strong results, we are extremely pleased to see improving grades in English and Maths and an improvement overall.

This year’s results are an improvement on 2022 and 2019 which were pre-pandemic. A positive indicator the College is continuing a trajectory of improvement and recovery from the pandemic.

For many of our students the disruption of their education created uncertainty and apprehension, students worked with ambitious and dedication to ensure they achieved success this Summer.

Many of our students have secured top grades, particularly in English, Languages and Art subjects. These will enable our students to progress to their next stage in life, for many continuing at Brixham Sixth Form, apprenticeships and other further education opportunities.

A huge congratulations to our students, staff and parents who have provided outstanding support and continuous commitment to helping our young people achieve these amazing outcomes.

Some individual successes are:

Jack Franklin is really pleased with his grade in History, English Language and English Literature that he sat in Year 10. “It was really useful to take this exam earlier as it took the pressure off an additional one this year. I’m looking forward to studying Philosophy and Ethics, Business Studies and Graphic Design here at Brixham College Sixth Form.

Will Banks was smiling from ear to ear after opening his results, relieved at passing his English Language; “I was so nervous about my English result but I really couldn’t be happier. I’m so pleased.” Will can’t wait to start his A Levels at Brixham College Sixth Form, studying Maths, Physics and Photography; “it’s all I’ve wanted, being able to stay here for Sixth Form, and I’m so happy that I now can”.

Jasmine Martin collected an amazing set of results, not able to hold back the tears of happiness. Jasmine was most pleased with her results in Maths and History; “these were my worst grades in my last mock exams, but their now my best – my biggest improvement and I’m over the moon. Thank you to Mr Brown for all his support and belief in me”. Jasmine with stay on for Sixth Form, studying Biology, Chemistry and Maths.

Mya Jonas celebrated her results, ecstatic with her History the most; “this makes no sense, but I’m so pleased. I’m really looking forward to studying Psychology, Sociology, Biology and Art here at the Sixth Form”. 

George Vaz and William Griffiths will both be joining the Brixham College Sixth Form in September to start their A Levels. Both students were really pleased with their results, Maths in particular for George; “the hard work has paid off. I’m really happy”. The two students have continuously demonstrated high expectations and commitment to their studies, resulting in some excellent achievements.

Evie Dugmore, Martha Sharman, Isabella Ashford and Daisy Williams celebrated together in their excellent set of results. All four students were really pleased with their achievements across their subjects and can’t wait to move on to their next step in their educational journey here at Brixham College, eager to get started in September at Sixth Form.

“I am delighted for our students receiving their GCSE results today. They have worked incredibly hard over the last two years and it is fantastic to see their dedication rewarded with an excellent suite of results.
