Dipen Patel is one of Brampton’s 11 students who achieved a place to study Medicine

Originally, I was unsure about leaving my previous school, but I made friends really quickly – some of whom will be friends for life. I found Brampton so supportive and a positive contrast to other schools. Here they are proactive and collaborative. As a result my confidence and self-esteem has increased.

This time last year I didn’t think it was possible, but I’m going to study Medicine at the University of East Anglia – which has always been my dream!”
