Students at a school in east London have achieved record A-Level results at the institution, with nearly 100 of them gaining three As or higher as they picked up their grades on results day.
Brampton Manor Academy in East Ham has been tweeting about the success of its students, congratulating them on the impressive grades and sharing where they will be going to university.
Baker Lubwama got three A*s and will be studying medicine at Cambridge as a result. “My mum was screaming down the phone saying ‘You’ve made us proud’,” he told HuffPost UK.
The school has been sharing images of the students holding their results letters and smiling. Each post celebrates their grades, what subject they will be studying at university and where. The students have gained places at a number of prestigious UK institutions, from Oxford and Cambridge to Imperial, Bristol and Durham.
Some of the universities have replied to the messages to congratulate the students who will be joining their ranks. The London School of Economics, Imperial College, Bristol, Cambridge, Queen Mary University and Oxford universities or their student bodies have all been in touch to congratulate the students.
The school is run by executive principal Dr Dayo Olukoshi, who was awarded an OBE in 2015 for his services to education. The school has been rated outstanding by Ofsted twice in the past five years, in both 2015 and 2018.
