    20 March 2020

    Dear Parents/Carers

    PLEASE READ CAREFULLY – BE RESPONSIBLE – SUPPORT EACH OTHER

    Following the announcement from the Government that school closure will not be "an educational setting" but a "safe place" for critical workers to leave their children and the publication of the ‘key worker’ list, we need to collect details of which families fall into this group so we can plan accordingly.

    19 March 2020

    Dear Year 13 Students, Parents and Carers

    Following the announcement yesterday regarding school closures, partial opening and exams this summer, I want to update you on the situation at Braintree Sixth Form for Year 13 students in particular.

    I appreciate this is a potentially worrying and unsettling time for Year 13 students and their families regarding the uncertainty of A Level and vocational examinations and grades.

    Dear Parents/Carers

    You will probably all be aware of the announcement made regarding school closures from Friday 20 March 2020.  We will consider the next steps and communicate with you as soon as possible.

    The safety and welfare of students and staff are our highest priority.

    Also, we would like to reassure all students preparing for public exams, that we will support them in achieving their next steps.

    Yours faithfully 

    Dr C Cusick, Head of School

    17 March 2020

    Dear Parents/Carers

    Students in Years 9 and 10

    Following the Government advice relating to the COVID-19 virus yesterday, we have a large number of staff who are absent due to a variety of reasons. As a result, we have had to make the difficult decision to suspend the timetable for Years 9 and 10 students from Wednesday 18 March – Friday 20 March 2020. A decision on next week will be made as soon as possible.

Welcome to Braintree Sixth Form

Welcome to Braintree Sixth Form

What will you find at BSF?

Since it opened ten years ago, Braintree Sixth Form has become established as a leading provider of academic courses. We are unique in the local area as we work in partnership with local secondary schools to deliver our varied and challenging curriculum, which prepares students for their chosen pathways post-Year 13.

Excellent academic achievement

In 2019 the ‘pass’ rate for A level was 97%, with 66% of grades at A*-C and 35% of the grades obtained being B grade or above. As in 2018, in 2019 100% of students who wished to take up a university place were offered one.

Excellent progression

The majority of our students progress to Higher and Further education courses, both locally and further afield. Each year, students secure places on selective Russell Group university courses, including Oxford and Cambridge. Other students choose to pursue different avenues, including Art Foundation courses, higher level apprenticeships and employment.

Supportive and nurturing staff

In choosing Braintree Sixth Form, you will be joining a supportive academic community. Our excellent pastoral support begins immediately, as you are offered a supportive application process and individual guidance on your selection of courses. We know our students well and so are able to support them in their studies. We expect you to want to achieve highly and will support you in your endeavours.

An aspirational and outward-looking community

Although many students at Braintree Sixth Form come from local secondary schools, the student body includes students from a wide range of different schools. This diversity contributes to the vibrant and welcoming atmosphere and ensures that everyone has the opportunity to meet new people and enjoy social activities alongside academic study.

Outstanding facilities

Our purpose built sixth form centre includes a café, common room, 2 ICT suites, library and specialist teaching facilities, creating a professional and aspirational environment for the exclusive use of our Sixth Form students.

We believe that by working together we can produce confident, independent and open-minded young adults who will be able to flourish at university, in employment and in their future lives.
