Welcome to Notley High School and Braintree sixth form


About fifteen years ago the small sixth forms attached to the Braintree secondary schools were closed and the Braintree College was opened to provide post 16 education for the area. Although many students have benefited from the college there have always been a significant number of parents and students who expressed a preference for a Sixth Form education.

In 2005 Notley High School was designated as a High Performing Specialist School and this made it possible for the school to apply to the then "Learning and Skills Council" for 11-19 status. It was decided to set up a Sixth Form for the whole of the Braintree area, rather than just for Notley High School students. A learning partnership was established between Notley High School, Alec Hunter Academy, Honywood Community Science School and Tabor Academy.

The Sixth Form opened in September 2009, housed in a brand new purpose built centre funded by a grant of £6,000,000 from the Learning and Skills Council.

Students in Braintree Sixth Form study for the two most recognised academic qualifications: the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and Advanced (A) Level qualifications.

We aim, through our curriculum, to produce confident, independent, internationally minded and socially engaged young people who will be able to flourish at university, in employment and throughout their lives
