Our Ofsted inspection in June 2012 confirmed that this is a school in which:
· “students make outstanding progress”
· “achievement has risen considerably”
· “students are respectful and considerate”
· “students’ behaviour is outstanding”
· “teaching is outstanding because teachers have extremely high expectations”
· there is an “amazingly effective vision”
They concluded that “this is an outstanding school” and that “the academy is an extremely harmonious community”. Since the Ofsted inspection we have been further strengthened by the publication of our 2012 GCSE results which were the best in the school’s entire history.
From September 2012 we are proud to have extended our provision by adding a wonderful new Sixth Form. Housed in a luxurious, purpose-built, air-conditioned Sixth Form Centre, and staffed with highly qualified and experienced teachers of A Level we have the capacity, vision and rigour to ensure outstanding success for our students and progression to the country’s top universities.
Brampton Manor Academy enjoys exceptional facilities in all subject areas. Our indoor sports facilities are excellent, comprising a very large sports hall, Gymnasium and Fitness centre. We also have excellent outdoor facilities with generous playing fields; a large, floodlit all-weather pitch; tennis, basketball and netball courts; cricket nets and a climbing wall. In addition, our playgrounds each have bistro facilities, traversing walls, table tennis and table football facilities and games ‘cages’.
Our Performing Arts facilities are probably the best you would find in any school. They comprise a professional standard 300-seat theatre; dance, drama, TV and recording studios; a high-specification media editing suite; and a visual arts suite with facilities for working in a wide range of media.
All of this is supported by excellent ICT provision throughout the academy. All our classrooms are large and very well resourced with modern facilities to promote high quality learning and teaching.
Most of all, at Brampton Manor Academy we care deeply about each student and we do our utmost to ensure that all are happy in their education and that no child is left behind. We strongly believe that we make a significant difference to the life chances of our students and we achieve this through a relentless pursuit of excellence and the provision of a challenging and personalised education for every child. Our harmonious ethos and excellent relationships provide the foundation for the academy’s remarkable and continuing success.
