Braintree Sixth Form’s First International Baccalaureate and A Level Results
Students and staff at Braintree Sixth Form are celebrating their first A Level and IB results, with students gaining excellent grades and achieving places at top universities. An A*-E pass rate of 98% was achieved by the students, making this a very successful first year. The A Level results follow the already published International Baccalaureate results, where students achieved a 90% pass rate, significantly exceeding the worldwide average of 78%.
Many students have gained places at top universities. IB student James Pickering has secured a place at Jesus College, Oxford to read Chemistry. James gained 40 out of a possible 45 points in his IB Diploma, putting him in the top 2% of students internationally. A Level student Toby Dyke achieved 2 A*s and an A grade, securing him a place at the University of York to read History. Kieran Jones and Rhyannon Brignell both achieved 2 A grades and 2 B grades, securing them places at the University of Warwick and the University of East Anglia, respectively.
Co-Directors of Sixth Form, Sarah Steadman and Kate Stubbs are delighted with the results. Sarah Steadman commented, ‘It is pleasing to see so many students meeting their university offers in this very competitive year – it is testament to the hard work of both students and staff and the support from parents that the Sixth Form has proved to be so successful so quickly.’ Kate Stubbs added, ‘We are also celebrating excellent achievements at AS and look forward to enrolling a new set of students into Braintree Sixth Form on August 25th.’

and stunning first results for Braintree Sixth Form
Students and staff at Notley High School and Braintree Sixth Form are completing a week of celebration and congratulation following a bumper crop of IB, A Level and GCSE results. Last week’s A Level results, with an A*-B pass rate of 46% and 98% at A*-E, added to the IB Diploma results received in July which showed a pass rate of 90% against a worldwide average of 78%. Following the Year 13 celebrations last week, Year 11 students received the results of their GCSE and other qualifications this morning.
77% of the Year 11 students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades, with 66% achieving this measure including English and mathematics, a rise of 11% compared to last year. 99% of students achieved 5 or more A*-G grades and there were many outstanding individual achievements.
Headteacher, Simon Thompson, commented, “This has, quite simply, been one of the best weeks I have experienced in my eight years as headteacher here. Last Thursday, we delighted in seeing our work with our partner schools, Alec Hunter, Honywood and Tabor, come to fruition with a stunning first set of Braintree Sixth Form results and today, to cap it all, we are celebrating record Year 11 results, with two thirds of our students achieving the government’s key measure of 5 or more A*-C including English and mathematics. After much negative publicity about young people following national events this summer, students across the Braintree area are showing that they have great talent, determination and ambition to succeed. I congratulate every one of them on their success and extend my sincere thanks to governors, staff and parents at Notley, and in our partner schools, who have contributed to this outstanding success for Notley High School and Braintree Sixth Form.”
