â€œI can honestly say that I loved the time I
spent at Brampton Manor. The Sixth Form introduced a community whereby students and teachers worked alongside one another to reach a unified goal; the teachers excelled in all aspects of their various disciplines and were always around whenever needed. The surrounding of like-minded and equally eager peers established an environment that was conducive for learning, stimulated growth and challenged you to achieve your academic potential. At every step of the way, it excited as well as it did incite.â€? Joseph Adikwu

PREPARING STUDENTS FOR THE FUTURE THE WORLD IS AN INCREASINGLY COMPETITIVE PLACE, WHICH IS WHY AT BRAMPTON MANOR WE HAVE ONE EYE ON THE NEXT STEP OF YOUR JOURNEY. Our well established university preparation programme leaves nothing to chance, offering superb guidance through the UCAS process. The UCAS process is delivered by expert tutors, University Access Officers and senior staff. This has resulted in the school achieving the best progression rate to the prestigious Russell Group of universities in the region and one of the best in the UK for five years running. We are proud of the wide range of high quality institutions our students progress to. In 2019 these included: • • • • • •

In order to help you choose the right university we offer you dozens of opportunities to attend residential
summer schools, lectures and enhancement programmes run by leading universities. Over the past year our students have successfully applied for and participated in schemes at a range of prestigious institutions including: Bristol, Durham, Exeter, Imperial, Nottingham, York, Warwick, Oxford and Cambridge. In 2019 we took the whole of year 12 on a residential trip to the universities of Warwick and Bath in order to experience life as a university student. As a Sixth Form that believes there is no limit to what you can achieve, we encourage our highest achievers to apply to Oxford or Cambridge. Our extensive Oxbridge preparation programme begins in Year 12 and includes residential trips to both universities, specialist support with admissions tests and interview workshops. All Oxbridge preparation is led by a dedicated team of Oxbridge graduates. In 2019 we were delighted that
thirty eight of our students progressed to study at Oxford or Cambridge. We also have a number of subject specific pathways on offer to students. For example, our medical applicants have the opportunity to complete a bespoke work experience and university preparation programme alongside a Senior Consultant at Newham General Hospital, whilst our lawyers have completed placements at the world’s leading law firms, including Clifford Chance and Allen & Overy. In fact, whatever you aspire to do in the future, from engineering to journalism, we make it our business to help you succeed. All students are guaranteed a one week work experience placement, as well as access to hundreds of outstanding placements taking place in school holidays.
