Students at Braintree Sixth Form have a number of opportunities to contribute to the life of the community, both within the sixth form and beyond. These include the Student Council, which meets weekly, the Student Ambassador team, who represent the sixth form at events throughout the year, and opportunities to contribute to local council and county-wide initiatives. As part of the Enrichment programme, a number of students carry out volunteering in local charities and organisations each week.
In addition, two student governors are selected each year. For 2019-20, the student governors representing the student voice on the governing body are Katy Finch and Cordelia Gillan, who both appear on this page.
