The Basildon Academies


I currently study A-Level English Language and Literature, Psychology and Criminology, and I am going to study Law with Politics and International Relations at university.

At The Basildon Academies I have been offered a lot of opportunities that have helped me develop academically and as a person. In order to further develop the skills for my prospective career, the school allowed me to chair meetings for the Student Council and start a law society and a debate club for Sixth Form. In Year 12, we had a trip to Paris that helped me gain contextual understanding for my English Language and Literature A-Level. In order to develop my interpersonal skills, the school provided me with the opportunity of getting a Certificate in Personal Development for Active Peer Listening, Mentoring and Safeguarding.

The school supported me throughout my journey and I really appreciate the teachers going the extra mile for me. They are always willing to help (even if this means missing their lunch break).

The Upper Academy has a very positive and stimulating learning environment, and I am excited to spend my last year here.
