"Studying A levels at Brentwood County High School was a journey I would redo all over again. The teachers I was in contact with during my two years there was nothing but thoughtful and welcoming considering the fact that I changed one of my subjects a month in. Overall, every moment in this school was a pleasant and memorable one. So were my subjects. I owe it to the teachers that taught me everything and helped me when I was in desperate need of help to say thank you. I'm here today because of you. This includes the sixth form support officer." (Year 13 student 2019)
The sixth form team will always have a special place in my heart. You guys have helped me through so much and will be sorely missed. (Year 13 student 2019)
