On Thursday 1 December, PhD student Tuesday Watts from the University of Essex visited Braintree Sixth Form to speak to psychology students.
Welcome to Braintree Sixth Form
Braintree Sixth Form continues to pursue its original aim when established of providing a traditional, academic curriculum to all the young people of Braintree and the surrounding area, at post-16.
If you choose to join our Sixth Form we will help you to achieve your potential, in whatever area that might be.
Our ambition is for our students to ‘be the best they can’ and, where students want to, that they progress to University to maximise their potential. Our students secure places on selective Russell Group university courses, including Oxford and Cambridge. 97% of our Higher Education students secured university places in 2016. Numbers of students also secure highly competitive apprenticeship and internship opportunities.
Students will receive teaching and learning of the highest standard in order to challenge and stretch students to achieve their academic potential. We offer a selection of A-Level courses and provide a welcoming and personalised learning environment for all of our students.
In choosing Braintree Sixth Form, you will be joining a supportive academic community. Our excellent pastoral support begins immediately, as you are offered individual guidance through the application process and advice on your selection of courses. Our pastoral team includes the Year Leaders, Student Support Officers and tutors, all available to offer guidance and support. Our Student Council, Student Ambassadors and Student Governors also all play a key and vital role in the management of Braintree Sixth Form.
Our motto is ‘working together, achieving together.’ We believe that by working together we can produce confident, independent and internationally minded young adults who will be able to flourish at university, in employment and in their future lives.
