Outstanding GCE and GCSE Results
LRBS is delighted to report the considerable success our students have achieved in the external examinations taken in Summer 2015, this a testament to the hard work of the students and their tutors.
school’s A-level results were outstanding with 92% of entrants being awarded an
A*/A or a B grade, with 40% of the passes receiving an A*/A grade. We are
delighted to be able to report such a high percentage of A* and A-grade passes,
this underlining LRBS’ commitment to helping our students gain academic success

Fred Powell has been offered a contract with a leading European ballet company but instead, following his outstanding A-level results, decided to take the offer to study Russian from the prestigious University College London (UCL). Natalie Carter has signed a contract with Le Palais d’Hiver and will be starting with the company early next year.
Since the arrival of the great Russian artists from the Imperial Theatre at the beginning of the nineteenth century, Russian ballet has been recognised in the West as a unique artistic phenomenon. Classical ballet, as we know it today, was largely created in the Russian Imperial Theatre. The style and character of classical ballet were formed during this Imperial period. It is this style and character that retain and manifest the significance and beauty of classical ballet for the audience today. In the development of classical ballet in Imperial Russia a system evolved, over two hundred and fifty years, to meet the technical requirements and fulfil the stylistic demands of Russian choreographers. Generations of great Russian ballet theatre artists worked within that system to preserve and pass down this heritage while allowing it to evolve. It has produced arguably the greatest ballet schools and method of ballet education. Many of the famous names in the world of ballet are the products of it.
