What says..

A strong focus throughout on the rigorously intellectual, with a traditional academic curriculum at GCSE, including three sciences, three languages (French, German, Spanish) and computer science. Extracurricular seen as part of the high-aspiring package, so pupils’ engagement in after-school clubs is tracked. Located in one of London’s poorest boroughs, Brampton Manor is now Newham’s second largest school, which means it can be somewhat intimidating. ‘It’s a bit scary,’ said one student, ‘but you...

What the school says...

Brampton Manor is an outstanding 11-18 Academy, located in East Ham, London. In April 2011, the school chose to convert to Academy status, becoming the first school in Newham to do so. We are a highly successful school. Examination results have been significantly above the Newham and National averages for the last 3 years. In 2013, 75% of our students achieved 5 or more A* - C grades, including English and Maths. This makes us the highest performing school in Newham. We have also been in the top 1% of all schools for the progress that students make from KS2 to GCSE. Our English Baccalaureate figure in 2013 of 41% is the best of any school in Newham and is comfortably above the Newham and national average. All groups of students and abilities make outstanding progress in our school.
Brampton Manor is a calm and harmonious learning institution. We have excellent resources in all curriculum areas. Our state-of-the-art sixth form centre opened in September 2012 to our first set of ambitious and aspiration all sixth formers. Our AS results were the best of any school in Newham and outperformed many others in the sub-region.
Brampton Manor Academy is a Leading Edge and a National Support School. Our Principal, Dr Olukoshi is a National Leader of Education.
Brampton Manor excels in a large number of areas: the arts, drama, sport and music. We take part in high status debating competitions, beating many highly rated independent schools such as Eton! We are unique in having a farm on our site, that provides an outstanding outdoor learning opportunity for our students.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Executive Principal

Since 2008, executive principal, Dr Dayon Olukoshi, OBE (50s). Nigerian by birth, he was educated at Federal Government College Sokoto and started work as a teacher in the UK in 1992. Previously deputy head of Phoenix Academy (formerly Phoenix High School) in White City, he took over at Brampton prior to its transformation into an academy. Now heads the Brampton Manor Academy Trust. A devout Christian, he is cut in the motivational-speaker mode, with a well-tailored, upbeat, energetic delivery. ‘I consider every challenge I have faced as an opportunity to excel rather than an obstacle to overcome,’ he says. Awarded OBE in 2016 for services to education, he regards himself and his team as ‘missionaries’ for education, and tells students, ‘It’s not about the way you look. It’s not about your skin colour...

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
