Admissions - Year 8

Welcome to Year 8 at RBAI!

RBAI is much more than a school. It is an academic institution of profound importance, which is held in high esteem for the contribution it has made in developing positive and dynamic contributors to society in a range of professions and settings, a process which has been ongoing for over 200 years.

Each year we welcome 150 new Year 8 pupils to Inst. Pupils are admitted according to the Admissions Criteria which can be accessed at the bottom of the page.

We are dedicated to helping each boy reach his full potential. In seeking academic achievement, we are also committed to preparing pupils to become responsible and active members of society. We provide each pupil with the knowledge and skills necessary for everyday life and for the working environment. We also stress the importance of good health and physical education whilst always providing the strong pastoral care which enables each pupil to develop as an individual.

We have boys who attend and travel to Inst from various parts of the Province – Dungannon, Hillsborough, Craigavon, Lisburn, Bangor, Belfast and Ballyclare to name but a few. The catchment for Inst can be displayed by clicking on the relevant document at the bottom of the page. RBAI is located close to the Europa Bus Centre and Great Victoria Street Railway Station. The ease of public transport ensures that the boys are only a bus or train journey away from home.
