BSAK Celebrates 2023 Sixth Form Exam Success

BSAK is delighted to announce a rise in A Level results this year, despite the UK downturn

The British School Al Khubairat is celebrating the achievements of their Sixth Form students, who have achieved outstanding results in their A Level and BTEC qualifications, with more A* grades than ever before in examination years.

BSAK’s 124 Year 13 students undertook 352 A Level qualifications and 15 Level 3 BTEC Diplomas.  They are rightly proud of the results achieved and the university places they have been able to secure through their hard work and determination to achieve. 45% of all grades were awarded at either A* or A, with 70% of grades awarded at A*- B and a 100% pass rate.  These outstanding results have allowed students to progress onto universities such as: MIT, Berkeley, USC and Columbia universities in the USA; LSE, Imperial and Manchester in the UK; and NYU Abu Dhabi.

Headmaster, Mark Leppard MBE commentedWe are extremely proud of these magnificent results. The academic achievement of the Class of 2023 really highlights the talent, hard work and resilience of each individual and their focus throughout their studies must be commended.


It is important to note that the grades alone do not entirely define these brilliant students. 

As well as exceptional academic outcomes, many of the class of 2023 are talented musicians, exceptional sportsmen and women, superb performers on the stage, inquisitive debaters, inspirational leaders and kind role models. These traits and their outstanding academic achievements will ensure that all members of the Class of 2023 have exciting futures ahead of them.'

Head of Secondary, Nigel Davis, commented ‘We are delighted with these incredible results, and that they represent an increase on last year.  This year group richly deserve their results, which are a reflection of their hard work, adaptability and resilience. As a school community, we have worked hard to ensure that our students received the very best learning experiences.

I would also like to take the opportunity to celebrate and thank our staff and our parents who have supported and mentored these students to enable them to achieve their very best and move forward with the next stage of their educational journey.’

GCSE Results 2023: BSAK Celebrates Students’ Achievements


BSAK Celebrates outstanding 2023 GCSE Results

Year 11 BSAK students are celebrating an outstanding set of GCSE results. Although exam boards brought grade boundaries back down to the levels of 2019, BSAK students exceeded the results obtained for that year. Of 134 students and 1245 entries, 18% of grades were awarded at Grade 9, the highest grade possible, and 38% were graded 9-8, equivalent to an A*. Furthermore, 57% were graded 9-7 equivalent to A*or A and 90% were graded 9-5 (A*-B). This year, 49 BSAK students (37% of all students) achieved at least 8 GCSE grades between 9-7 - equivalent to A*-A.

The following students received 8 or more Grade 9s:

  • Maya Telang
  • Kyle Glatley 
  • Shamsa Al Sayegh
  • Avisheh Khalid
  • Thea Kutaiman
  • Rayhan Manoly
  • Jaden Marvin
  • Zara Raza
  • Leo Tabone


We are delighted that our students have been rewarded with grades that reflect their ability, hard work and determination, in a year that has seen GCSE grades fall, globally.

Headmaster, Mark Leppard MBE commented ‘With the three previous years’ exam results being impacted due to the pandemic, I am delighted and extremely proud that with a return to normality, in terms of grade boundaries, physical exams and physical access to school, the GCSE exam results achieved by our students are absolutely fantastic. Most notably they are even stronger than the pre-pandemic results of 2019, which at the time were some of the best the school had ever achieved. These results are due to a number of factors, including continual parental support, outstanding classroom practice, but most notably a driven and talented group of students who have worked tirelessly to achieve these grades. A strong set of results give students numerous options as they progress to the next stage of their educational journey.

Well done to each and every student for what they have achieved today. It is the day to celebrate this wonderful accomplishment.'


Nigel Davis, Head of Secondary commented. 'These are yet another stunning set of results from a BSAK GCSE cohort.  I am incredibly proud of their achievement and they thoroughly deserve their success and more. These results are now opening doors to the exciting breadth of courses that are available in the BSAK Sixth Form. We are so excited to see them walk through the doors next week in their new Sixth Form white shirts.

Thanks must be given to our outstanding teaching staff, our parents and wider community for the way they have all supported our wonderful students to gain these successes.
