I live in East London and these are the best sixth forms in the area
While LAE was my first choice, after going to the Brampton open day I was very impressed and the school appears to be able to improve my grades and provide good education and have a progress score of 0.68
LAE is also known for being very good too, they provided 80% of their students in Russel Group unis and have a progress score of 0.58

What are your opinions about the school (please message if you went to either)
Thanks

They are both good.

Work out whats important to you:

Happy time.
Develop you as a student.
Prospect of good grades.
Travel.

The most important one is about grades imo.

LAE has an Ofsted grade of 2= Good.
Brampton has an Ofsted rating of 1= Outstanding.

both LAE and Brampton offer enrichment to add to personal statements (only LAE allows for use of better centres and facilities due to its location)

the Brampton open day was very long winded and he student tour guide we had seemed quite fake, not in a rude way just like he was saying very cliche and robotic responses.

I feel as though Brampton's grades are because of their low retention rate (many kicked out if receiving low grades) LAE has this too but a far higher number of them complete the full course

At LAE we talked to students and they gave a range of different responses

because of travel and having the same success as Brampton, LAE is my first choice but since u couldn't stay long in Brampton open day I'd love a more realistic idea of the school than what the tour guide said

If you have been offered places, then ask to revisit or spend a day there. My priority would be where I would get the best results from? That is down to some careful consideration and you knowing yourself.

Re. the comment of 'Very Important Poster' that LAE has an Ofsted rating of 'Good' whilst Brampton has an Ofsted rating of 'Outstanding', that is incorrect.

LAE has a 2017 Ofsted rating of outstanding in all categories.

I think that Brampton's last Ofsted inspection was in 2012 (also outstanding).

I hope that helps ...
