Our Sixth Form College

Our Sixth Form College

We have been helping students achieve their academic aims for nearly 30 years. We are the highest achieving sixth form college in London, providing a rigorous academic programme for young adults within an informal and friendly learning environment.

Making the right choice of subjects is critical, and at Brampton we offer a range of GCSE and A level courses and the guidance and flexibility to meet the needs of each of our students.

Being at sixth form is a crucial development period for young people, in both an intellectual and personal sense. This is why we offer an extensive programme of individual support, mentoring and enrichment activities to build students’ confidence and prepare them for their next steps.

Sixth Form Tutors

The teachers at Brampton College are highly qualified sixth form specialists, well-practised in preparing young people for their A level examinations and happy to provide personal guidance along the way. Many of the teachers have experience of examining.

Teaching occurs in small groups at Brampton College. The average class size is seven, with a maximum of nine. This allows tutors to focus attention on each individual student, so that they all receive the support that they deserve.

Brampton College is situated on an attractive purpose-built site with outstanding amenities. We have a total of four laboratories (all of which have been refurbished in the past two years), a beautiful art studio, excellent computer facilities, a large supervised library, a GCSE suite, a student common room and other invaluable student break-out or study areas.
