Braintree Sixth Form celebrated their best ever International Baccalaureate (IB) results in July, with 100% of the Year 13 IB cohort passing the qualification. The highest points score was achieved by Tamsin Sprawling with 39 points. The average point score for the whole IB cohort was 32 points, above both national and international averages.
Today Braintree Sixth Form are again celebrating some very strong A level and AS level results. This year sees the first results for the new reformed linear A levels. Over 96% of all grades were achieved at A*-E grades with over 35% of the results being the highest grades of A*-B. 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.
Many of our students are now looking forward to taking up places at university, both locally and further afield. Tamsin Sprawling who achieved 39 points in the IB is going to the Royal Agricultural University to study Rural Land Management. Jessica Firman achieved 38 points in the IB and will be studying English Literature with Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia. Taylor Golden achieved A*AB and is waiting to confirm his university choice. Hannah Knock will be reading Biomedical Science at the University of Surrey after achieving A*AB at A level.
