About Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form
Notley High School is a secondary academy in Braintree, Essex. A co-educational institution with around 1400 pupils aged 11-19, making it significantly larger than the average secondary school, Notley High School became an academy in 2009. In addition to standard provision for students, the school also runs a dedicated centre for students with Special Educational Needs across the local community. Originally an 11-16 school, in 2009 the school helped lead the establishment of a new sixth form centre, Braintree Sixth Form, with the intention of serving children in post-16 education across the local community.

Values and Vision
Notley High School is committed to its ethos as a comprehensive, non-selective school. It does this by offering a wide range of different educational opportunities to its students, with a broad and diverse curriculum surrounding a solid grounding in core subjects. As a member of the North Essex Multi-Academy Trust, the school works in close partnership with its local contemporaries to ensure that students are given proper provision for their post-16 education, and transition smoothly into Braintree Sixth Form should they choose to attend.
“Over time teaching is good. During the inspection about one third was outstanding, reflecting the school’s evaluation, and with a small proportion that was satisfactory. In the best lessons, teachers have high expectations, plan lessons thoroughly and ensure learning outcomes are explicit and clearly linked to National Curriculum levels, or public examination grades.”
