“Brillantmont manages to merge studies, sport and friendly activities... You can really get to enjoy some time with the whole school, students as well as teachers. Brillantmont not only gave me the scholastic tools to prepare me for university, but it also helped me become more confident and determined.”

Our students’ stories
Students can get inspired for the future with a look at some of our latest success stories. In 2018, 26 graduating students went on to study at universities and colleges all over the world. Some returned to their home nations; others headed off on new adventures.
Most notably, 13 students - half of the graduating class - have opted to follow up on their A Levels by studying at UK educational establishments. They are studying diverse subjects that include computing and engineering, law, fashion, politics and business administration.
Other international students from the same class have gone on to study music, medicine, sciences and commerce. The beauty of the Brillantmont programme for Grades 10-12 is how it prepares our students for further education - whatever they choose to study.
