Braintree Sixth Form have reason to celebrate today with our best set of exam results in many years; huge improvements have been made at every level since the last set of externally taken examinations. 45.65% of our students got A* - B grades and 98.5% achieved an A*-E.
Our top performing students are Thomas with 4 A*s in Computer Science, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics who is going to Durham University to read Physics; Ben who achieved 4 A* grades in Biology, Chemistry, English Language and Literature and EPQ and is going on to read Biochemistry at Imperial College; and Wallace with A*s in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Chemistry and an A in Computer science allowing him to study Computer Science at Bristol University.
Amongst may other excellent performances were:
Our students have accepted offers from a range of Russell Group universities including the Universities of Birmingham, Bristol, Sheffield, LSE, Nottingham and York. We also have a number of students who have accepted degree apprenticeships this year; amongst these are the global investment bank UBS; Teledyne e2V; Essex Police and Mayer Brown International.
Headteacher, Miss Ryan, said, “It is lovely to see so many students achieving a wide variety of destination routes. I am extremely proud of each of their accomplishments and hope they will come back to tell us of their future successes.”
Ms Dunton, Head of Sixth Form, said, “We are so proud of the students for their amazing achievements this year – particularly so as this was their first experience of externally set exams and they undertook a significant part of their studies online during lockdown. It is fantastic to see so many of them securing places at prestigious universities and degree apprenticeship providers, as well as many who have already started employment. I have no doubt that they will go on to achieve further successes in their future and look forward to hearing all about those.”
Our students said,“ I am absolutely over the moon! I’m now off to university and will miss everyone at BSF”; “I’m so thrilled with my results. I would like to thank BSF as a whole and especially my teachers”; “I’m overwhelmed and so happy; I am so proud of myself!”
