by Eddie Rayner

The Repton Family of Schools in the UAE announces another year of academic excellence in the 2022 IGCSE examination results. This year, Repton Dubai celebrates exceptional performances for the 13th consecutive year along with its sister school, Repton Abu Dhabi, also showcasing top results from its second IGCSE cohort.

Building on last year’s brilliant inaugural performance, students at Repton Abu Dhabi’s Fry Campus displayed a consecutive exemplary performance with 30% of exam entries awarded the maximum grade 9/8’s (A*) and 54% received the grade 9-7’s (A*-A); while it also received a 97% overall student pass rate 9-4 (A*-C). The results from this year’s IGCSE examinations reflect Repton Abu Dhabi’s resilience, determination, and passion for outstanding academic results.

Repton Dubai continues to showcase praise-worthy performances in the IGCSE examinations with 29% of exam entries awarded the 9-8 grade (A*) and 51% received the grade 9-7’s (A*-A), further pushing the benchmark for future cohorts to follow.

Repton Abu Dhabi once again achieves academic excellence with 30% of exam entries awarded Grade 9-8 (A*) and 54% receiving grades 9-7’s (A*-A)

David Cook, Chief Education Officer of Excella and Headmaster at Repton Dubai says: “The Repton Family of Schools in the UAE has a longstanding history of producing outstanding results and we are proud of our students’ performances in this year’s GCSE examinations. These results are doubly impressive given that this cohort entered ‘lockdown’ in April 2020 due to the pandemic, when they were still in Year 9, and then many of the same students spent their Year 10, remote learning from home. The phenomenal grades secured by Reptonians are a true reflection of the commitment and dedication to achieving academic excellence by both teachers and students. With these impressive grades, we are confident that our students will succeed in the next phase of their academic life and careers.”

To recognise students’ outstanding achievements, Repton Abu Dhabi has also offered its Year 11 top-performers academic scholarships at the Sixth Form for the next academic year. Deema Al Qemzi, who attained 9 Grade 9-7 (A*-A) and Sofia Polyzou, who received 8 Grade 9-7(A*-A), were awarded academic scholarships for their remarkable performances.

I would like to congratulate all the students and teachers, and thank our parents for their wonderful support, encouragement, and motivation, which has played a pivotal part in our students’ amazing accomplishments.”
