According to figures recently released by the Department for Education (DfE), Brampton College achieved the highest results of all London’s independent sixth form colleges, ranking third nationally. 47% of A-level students gained an A or A* grade, against a national average of 26% in 2018. The college also scored highly on the DfE’s progress scores.
Founded in 1991 with just two classrooms, Brampton now teaches 240 students in an informal atmosphere, designed to help them adapt to the style of learning enjoyed at university and in later life.
When students leave us feeling confident and happy, then we know we have achieved success
College principal, Bernard Canetti, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to see Brampton achieve this landmark result for the 18th year in succession. As well as being a testament to the hard work of our teachers and students, this achievement shows that Brampton’s approach to success – which places emphasis on both academic and individual student wellbeing – is effective. It’s profoundly important that we create an environment where students feel that their teachers are concerned about them as individuals and believe in them, so they are supported and develop into resilient young adults. When students leave us feeling confident and happy, then we know we have achieved success.”
