Our Success Stories
Shane Daniel 2019 IGCSE Alumni
The overall journey that I had undergone, was one that was fruitful and provided a variety of benefits. An experience made possible by the positive- learning environment that is ever- present at Brixsten. The main contributors to this being, the dedicated and understanding teachers, who are experienced with effective methods of teaching, tied together with an attentiveness to students’ needs. As a result, all students are also assured, aware and able to better themselves; developing the sense of companionship between students and all around. With that in mind, my time spent at Brixsten has built upon my skills, in respect to knowledge and social awareness, that has helped in my personal development to be equipped for the future.

My experience at Brixsten academy was, to be honest, great. The atmosphere there is warm and inviting. Made a lot of good friends and memories of studying there. As a science stream student, I was completely satisfied with the level of teaching held at the centre. The teachers were all very competent and are more than willing to adapt to my pace of learning. They were also very kind and friendly towards me and are always there to help out whenever I have problems. The centre’s location is really good as well, as there are plenty of restaurants nearby the centre when it comes to lunch breaks. Overall, I had a good experience studying there.
