Students and staff at Braintree Sixth Form celebrated another excellent set of results this year.
At A-level we had a 99% pass rate including 49% of students gaining A*-B grades and 77% gaining A*-C grades.
A-level students Chloe Beckett and Ellie Hicks have secured places at Oxbridge. Chloe’s impressive A*A*AA grades means that she will be enrolling in Homerton College, Cambridge to read History. Ellie’s A*AA grades, combined with her excellent musical performance at interview, have gained her a place at University College, Oxford to read Music. Other top performers include Craig Woodcock (A*A*AA), who will be reading Maths at University of Warwick and Emily Price, who gained A* A* A.
