    Introduction to Applications

We are delighted that you are considering Braintree Sixth Form as the next step in your education. One of the aims of this prospectus is to provide you with a detailed overview of the courses we are offering in September 2023 and to help you make a fully informed choice about the subjects that you would like to study. You may have decided your courses or you may still need some help with making those choices. This prospectus will provide you with the key information you need to support with this decision making process. The combination of subjects that you choose for Year 12 will influence your future pathways so you should carefully consider both your subject choices and your possible career or study plans.

High Quality Teaching and Excellent Academic Achievement

Since our opening, we have established ourselves as one of the leading post-16 providers in the district. In the past 3 years, 90% of students secured a place at their first choice of university and all students who wished to attend were offered university places. The majority of our students choose to progress to Higher and Further Education courses, both locally and further afield. Each year, students secure places on selective Russell Group university courses, including Oxford and Cambridge. Others also secure highly competitive apprenticeship and internship opportunities, and interest in these is steadily increasing. Some others choose to enter directly into employment. Whatever progression route students choose, guidance and support are provided at each stage to help them achieve their goals.

A Learning Community

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. Once you start in Year 12, personal tutors and pastoral support staff offer you regular individual guidance throughout your time as a student.

Aspirational and Professional Environment

Our purpose built sixth form centre includes a café, common room, ICT suites, library and specialist teaching facilities, creating a welcoming and productive academic setting.

Our Aim

We believe that by working together, we can produce confident, independent and open minded young adults who will be able to flourish at university, in employment and in their future lives. We hope that you find the information provided in this prospectus helpful. Please do contact Braintree Sixth Form if you require any additional details via the enquiries email address,
