A-Level Examination Accomplishments 2016


Congratulations to the Sixth Form and their teachers on their AS and A2 examination results. Too frequently one reads of the ‘lost generation’ of boys with a widening gender gap between the accomplishments and achievements of boys and girls. At RBAI the boys continue to do well in their chosen subjects and to realise their personal ambitions and potential.


 Year 14's results were excellent; it was lovely to see so many boys happy with their performances

There are the individual superb successes of Omar Helmy with 4 A* in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics; Jack Irvine with 4 A* in Chemistry, Mathematics, Further Maths and Physics, and Carson McKee with 4 A* in Biology, Chemistry, Design and Technology and Mathematics. Omar will now progress to Cambridge University to read Medicine, Jack to Cambridge University to read Engineering and Carson to St Andrew’s University to read Mathematics. All 4 Oxbridge candidates have been successful and in addition to Omar and Jack, congratulations are extended to Cameron Hilditch reading English Literature at Oxford University and to Dylan Braithwaite progressing to Cambridge University for Computer Science.


Omar Helmy, Cameron Hilditch, Jack Irvine and Dylan Braithwaite will all be taking up places at Oxford or Cambridge.


Congratulations to Omar Helmy, Jack Irvine and Carson McKee who all achieved 4 A* grades at A2.

There are collective successes with over 10% of the Class of 2016 achieving 2-4 A*/A grades at A2. The 100% A*-C in Business Studies, Latin, Further Maths, Media Studies, Music, Politics and Spanish is an excellent reflection of the high quality teaching and learning in the Sixth Form.

At AS the individual success of 3 or more A grades is to be celebrated:

4 A Grades:   Michael Corbett, Curtis Gribben, Conor Hamill, Angus Harley, Isaac Main, Theo Millar and Mustafa Thwaini.

3A + 1B:         Aaron Devine

3A + 1C:         Bailey Gribben

3 A Grades:    James Emery, Christopher Horner, Ross Macleod, Robbie Marrs, Brandon McClernon, Jakob Robb, Peter Morrison, Daniel Penny-Gallagher and Dermot Wallace.

Congratulations to the 11 students who achieved at least one A2 at the end of Year 13, including Spanish, Mathematics (1B, 5A, 4A*) and Chinese.

We now look forward to welcoming the Lower Sixth back to Year 14, commencing Tuesday 30 August 2016. Best wishes to the Year 14 leavers as they begin the next chapter of Higher Education.
