Sixth Form

The Sixth Form at Braeburn Mombasa International School is a thriving, vibrant and active community which provides opportunities for young men and women to excel academically and to mature through involvement in our enrichment programme. While small in number the students leave our Sixth Form to continue their studies in Higher Education, with the majority gaining places at their first choice university. Braeburn Schools alumni are currently studying at: Oxford University, University College London, University of Pennsylvania, University of British Columbia, Maastricht University, Rhodes University, University of Cape Town , just to name a few.

In the Sixth Form, Years 12 and 13, the alternative paths to university offered in BMIS ensure that all students find a sixth form challenge suited to their strengths. Sixth form students can opt for A-levels that allow specialisation in areas of strength related to future careers, or BTEC that enhances skills valued in the workplace, university and life. At BMIS, we recognise that every student is an individual with unique requirements and we create individualised study programmes that may combine both A-levels and BTEC components to meet these needs.

The success of our approach to education in the Sixth form is shown by the placement of our students in universities across the world, with all students who want to go to university obtaining offers from universities of their choice.


In the Sixth Form, Key Stage Five (Years 12-13), students may study an A level programme of 3 or 4 subjects, a BTEC course of 1, 2 or 3 subjects or a mixture of A level and BTEC which is, in that case, offered as an equivalent to one or two A level in UCAS points. Students are allocated 5 teaching hours per subject. They continue to have Games for 2 hours per week and Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic (PSHCE) for one hour per week. Students are encouraged to take part in a range of Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) projects in addition to their timetabled hours.
