Our Sixth Form College
We have been helping students achieve their academic aims for over 25 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 extra-curricular 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 our members of staff are also A level examiners.
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 five 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.
GCSE and A Level Results
Here at Brampton College, we are incredibly proud of our long-running history of exceptional results. For 16 consecutive years, we have come top of all sixth form colleges in London, and in 2017 we came 3rd nationally in the Department for Education (DfE) performance table of independent sixth form colleges.
In 2016, 84% of A level students at Brampton received an A*- B grade, compared with the 53% national average. Furthermore, nearly 60% of our students have been placed at their first choice university, predominantly Russell Group.
Our GCSE results were our best ever this year with 30% achieving A* and 62% achieving A*/A.
