Brampton Manor Academy Sixth Form – Best in the region on all measures Thursday 21st January 2016 The 2015 performance tables published today confirm that Brampton Manor Academy is the top performing A Level provider in the region on all measures. The full tables can be viewed on the Department for Education website: http://www.education.gov.uk/cgibin/schools/performance/group.pl?qtype=LA&superview=p16&view=aat&set=1&tab=151&no=316 &sort=ks5_15.tallppe_aleva&ord=desc These stunning A Level results, which saw 63% of students achieve A*-A grades, are not only the best in Newham (London Academy of Excellence 36% A*-A) and indeed the region (Woodford County High 49% A*-A) but outperform some of the country’s most prestigious independent schools, including Dulwich College (62% A*-A), Rugby School (58%) and Epsom College (49%). Dr Dayo Olukoshi OBE, Executive Principal of Brampton Manor Academy, said “We are exceptionally proud of what our students have achieved. Their remarkable results are a testament to their commitment and talent with the support of highly dedicated and experienced teachers. I am delighted that this has enabled them to take up places to study the most competitive courses at the country’s leading universities. It is a privilege to have such ambitious and motivated young people in our care and we will continue to work tirelessly to ensure this year’s cohort achieve similarly outstanding outcomes.” The Value Added score of 0.45 means that in 2015 Brampton students on average achieved nearly half a grade higher in each A Level subject compared to national results of students with similar GCSE profiles. The performance tables demonstrate that Brampton students made significantly more progress than those in any other school in the region. Crucially, these results enabled the vast majority of students to progress onto study at the university of their choice – the Russell Group progression rate of 85% is one of the best in the UK. Five students are now studying at Oxford or Cambridge and look set to be joined next year by a further five Brampton students (pictured below), who have recently received offers to study the most competitive courses, including Medicine and Mathematics. In total four students already have confirmed offers to study at medical school and with a further ten awaiting the outcome of interviews at medical, dentistry or veterinary school, Brampton looks set to cement its reputation as the leading provider for progression to Oxbridge and other competitive courses. Mostafa Chizari, who joined the Sixth Form from Stratford School Academy and now holds a conditional offer to study Medicine at Wadham College, Oxford said “It feels surreal to actually have an offer to study Medicine at Oxford. The most difficult obstacle to overcome was believing in myself. The amount of faith the teachers had in me was incredible and, by talking to former Brampton students studying at Oxford, I developed the confidence I needed to get a place”. Applications to join the Sixth Form are now open. To meet the unprecedented demand for places the new academic year will also see the opening of a new building, housing four state of the art science labs, a further eight classrooms and enlarged Common Room & Study Centre areas to provide students with first rate facilities to enable them to achieve to the best of their considerable potential for many years to come.
