TWO high-flying pupils from Benjamin Britten High School are preparing themselves for university life after acing their A-level exams.

James Barrett, of Lakeside Rise, Blundeston, has left for Birmingham University, and Robert Scrivener, of The Trossachs, Oulton Broad, is off to Cambridge University, after both achieved three As in their A-levels.

The Lowestoft school enjoyed a successful year with strong GCSE and A-level results this year, and James and Robert, both 18, were two of the star performers.

Robert achieved an A grade for English literature, history and chemistry - scoring 589 out of 600 for chemistry - while James was awarded A grades for maths, further maths and physics.

James is to study a four-year masters in particle physics with cosmology.

This weekend, Robert is due to move to Cambridge University's Fitzwilliam College, where he will study law. The musician, who has been actively involved in local scout groups, dreams of practising criminal law through legal aid.

“The support the school has given me has been immense, and I'd like to thank them,” said Robert, who achieved a B in A-level ICT when he was in Year 10, through the school's accelerated learning.

Headteacher Trevor Osbourne said: “Robert and James are shining examples of two individuals who not only have achieved enormous-ly academically but have also contributed much to school and community life.”
