WELCOME WELCOME TO BRAMPTON MANOR ACADEMY SIXTH FORM. This is an academic Sixth Form, offering high quality A Level teaching. We have exceptionally high standards and have an established tradition of academic achievement. Students make exceptional progress at Brampton and we deliver outstanding A Level results. In 2017 our fourth cohort of A Level students achieved our highest number of A*- A grades to date. Three quarters of our students progressed to Russell Group universities – the highest of any provider in Newham and one of the highest Russell Group progression rates in the country. Seven students progressed to Oxford or Cambridge. This is a tribute to their hard work, but also to the elements that we have put in place at Brampton Manor to ensure their success. We have: • Exceptional teachers in all subjects. • Astonishing facilities in all subjects. • A wide choice of academic A Level courses. • Small teaching group sizes. • An outstanding university guidance programme. • A diverse enrichment programme. • Bespoke work experience tailored to enhance. specific university entrance requirements. • A fantastic Sixth Form centre. • An ethos and culture which welcomes and supports all students.

established institution with a track record of success, rated as ‘Outstanding’ in every category by Ofsted. In their last visit they confirmed that: • “Students make outstanding progress” • “Teaching is outstanding because teachers have extremely high expectations” • “Students are respectful and considerate” • “Students’ behaviour is outstanding” • “There is an amazingly effective vision” In 2018 our A Level results will continue to cement our position as one of the highest achieving academic Sixth Forms in the United Kingdom. This is due to the commitment and dedication of our students and our staff, who are second to none. Most of our teachers are themselves top graduates of the elite Russell Group of universities to which our students aspire, and together they form a highly qualified and experienced team of professionals who are experts in their fields. None of the success we continue to enjoy has happened by accident. It’s all about having the right people, the right resources and the right level of challenge and support. You now have the opportunity to join in that success. Good Luck.

We want you to do well but also to enjoy your Sixth Form experience. So you’ll find that there are plenty of social, sporting, artistic and recreational activities available to help ensure a healthy work / life balance. By choosing Brampton Manor you’ll be joining a long-

“I 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.� Joseph Adikwu
