Today Braintree Sixth Form is celebrating some very strong A level results which reflect the continued efforts of students and staff over the duration of their courses. Over 94% of all grades were achieved at A*-E grades, with 39% of the results being the highest grades of A*-B which is an improvement on last year’s figure of 34%.
Looking at individual student outcomes, there were some excellent results and as a consequence, many of our students are now looking forward to taking up places at university, both locally and further afield. Samuel Newman achieved A* A* A* A A and is hoping to study Chemical Engineering at Cambridge University. Natacha Maurin achieved A A A B and is also hoping to study History and Spanish at Cambridge University whilst Harrison Hunt who also achieved A A A B is hoping to study for an Economics and Finance degree. Taylor Francis achieved A A B B and is waiting to confirm his university choice to study Politics and International Relations. Holly Rhodes will be reading Applied Psychology at university after achieving A A A B for her A Levels. Samuel Cornwell was awarded A* A A and will read Mechanical Engineering at Bath University whilst Nabil Butcher achieved A* A* B and is looking to study Mechanical Engineering at Sheffield University.
Braintree Sixth Form also celebrated excellent International Baccalaureate (IB) results in July, with 100% of the Year 13 IB cohort passing the qualification at an average points score of 31 which is above the world average figure of 29. The highest points score was achieved by Olivia Andrews with 37 points whilst Alice Dixon achieved 32 points. Olivia is hoping to study History at Kent University whilst Alice is looking to study Psychology at Lincoln University.
David Conway, Headteacher of Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form commented “Braintree Sixth Form was set up to offer all local young people a progression route to university and other post 18 career options. It is great to see so many of our students achieving excellent grades and continuing on the next steps of their education and careers. With an increasing intake to the sixth form, we are delighted to be able to offer all the students in Braintree the opportunity to take A levels and progress to university, college and career based options. The results today are very well deserved by the students who have worked very hard and have been ably supported by both their teachers and parents and carers. Congratulations and good luck to them all”.
