Brampton College has a long history of achieving outstanding A level results. The College came 3rd nationally in the Department for Education (DfE) performance table of independent sixth form colleges (published January 2019) and has come top of all sixth form colleges in London for the last 18 years. In 2017 the DfE also placed the College in the top 5% of schools and colleges in the country, for the A level Progress Score, which measures how much progress students have made from GCSE to A level – an exceptional achievement.

GCSE Results 2018

  • 74% 9-7 (A*/A) versus 20% nationally
  • 47% 9/8 (A*) versus 6.5% nationally (legacy)
  • 17% top grade 9 versus 4% nationally

The College excelled in subjects such as English Literature which had 80% 9-7 grades, Mathematics which had 79% 9-7, and Chemistry which had 79% A*/A grades. This is an incredible outcome, and we want to say a huge congratulations to all our students.

This is the first year in which pupils have been graded by a 1-9 number system as opposed to the traditional A*-G grading. 9 is the highest and 1 the lowest. 9, 8 and 7 correspond to the current top grades of A* and A and this has been designed to give more differentiation at the top end. 9 has been awarded to fewer pupils than A* was previously.

Right now I feel awesome! Coming to Brampton was a great change. I instantly enjoyed the teaching and environment, including the regular testing system and small class groups. The individual attention helps you realise your potential. Definitely come to Brampton, it’s good for everyone. It focussed me on my work and I got great results – so it all paid off!

Natalyia Ashurova transferred to us from another school and has achieved an A*A*A here at Brampton

I’m really happy. I couldn’t sleep for a few days but I’m so relieved now. I’m off to study Medicine which has been my goal from day one!

I’ve especially valued the personal relationships you develop with teachers here at Brampton – being able to go to them whenever I needed them for questions, time management or personal guidance. They helped me beyond my academic studies.

I chose Brampton because they offered regular monitoring that other colleges don’t offer. The fortnightly reports and the one-on-ones both helped keep me on track.

More than the academic side of things, I’ve become a more confident person. Brampton teaches you to become an adult, it makes you more eager to learn. I’ve been reassured by my teachers and given a sense of self-belief I never had before.

An amazing result of A*A*A*A for Joyce Kam who’s off to study Medicine at King’s College London.
