Continuing the trend of last year, students at RBA have posted another excellent set of A Level exam results. Once again, the overall A*-E pass rate was 100% and 40% of all grades were A*-B (up by 7%). Nearly all sixth form students have now planned to progress on to either University or onto higher level apprenticeships.
In A-Level History, 100% of students attained an A*-C grade, in A-Level Maths, 71% of students secured A*-C grade and in A-Level Biology and Chemistry, 100% of students attained A*/A grades. This year, we have seen another shift in Year 13 students attaining the higher end grades, particularly in the more academic subjects.
Out of the many fantastic performances, students with particularly high achievements include: Roshni Patel (A*, A*, A) who is now going on to study medicine at one of the world’s best medicine colleges, Imperial College. Faraz Khokhar (A, B, B) is due to study Economics at Lancaster University. In addition to this, Lois-May Chapman (A, A, C) will be studying Geography at the Royal Holloway University.
We are very proud of all our sixth form students and would like to congratulate them all on their achievements.
This year RBA has seen another set of successful GCSE exam results that reflect the hard work that students have put in, supported by staff and parents.
Students have responded well to the very difficult new exams in both English and Maths and it was particularly pleasing to see our students score the very highest ‘Grade 9’ in both of these subjects.
As the school enters its’ second year as Robert Barclay Academy these results further recognise the improvements that have been made, as noted by Ofsted in January. Out of all the very pleasing results, Amber Russell-Mason gained 7A* and 1 x grade 9 (the new A*) in English and 1 x grade 8 in maths. We look forward to welcoming the students back in to our Sixth Form next week.
