2019 Exam Results

In the summer of 2019, at GCSE 60% of students have achieved grade 4 or higher in both English and Maths GCSE. 101 students achieved at least 5 grades of 5 or higher, and 22 students achieved at least one grade 9. 15% of all grades achieved were 9-7 (or equivalent).

In the sixth form, the overall pass rate has improved to just under 98%, a considerable achievement with the new reformed A Levels. 36% of the grades were A*- B and there are some outstanding achievements at the top end of the grade range as well as some excellent achievements for individuals at every level, whose results will enable them to achieve their hopes and aspirations for their futures. All students who wished to go on to Higher Education and attend university received an offer of a place. The vast majority of the year group will progress to further study in Higher Education but of those who have chosen not to apply, a number will begin apprenticeships, others will begin employment, and others will take a gap year to pursue interests, volunteer, and finalise their plans.

Full details of GCSE and A Level exam results will be published once they have been validated by the DFE.

2018 Exam Results

In the summer of 2018, at GCSE level, 66% of students achieved grade 4 or higher in both English and mathematics GCSE, and additionally, just under 70% of all GCSE grades achieved by students were graded 4 or higher. 43% of students gained at least a grade 5 in both mathematics and English. 18% of all grades achieved were 9-7 (or their previous A*- A equivalent). Additionally, 51 students achieved at least three 7s or higher (or equivalent grades such as A/A*).

Some very strong A Level results were achieved 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%.

Braintree Sixth Form also celebrated excellent International Baccalaureate (IB) results in July 2018, 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.

David Conway, Headteacher of Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form commented in August 2018, “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”.
