    Brampton Manor in east London credits students’ success to their ambition and to excellent staff

    Still not a patch on Eton

    Brampton Manor may be located in one of the poorest boroughs in London but its success now rivals that of some of the top private schools across the country. By way of comparison, in 2015 68 students from Eton College were accepted by Oxbridge, out of a cohort of 267.

    There’s a separate board for Oxbridge, the names topped by the school’s first Oxbridge student, Nulifa Ahmed, who went on to get a first in geography at Cambridge.

    The point he is making is that white, British people are evil and foreigners are better than us.

    It's a point made often on this forum and it should not be tolerated. I expect that most of the readers of this site are white British and that the likes of Sir Galahad and the others who post this tripe are white British too!

    What other nation hates itself so much?

    Nail on the head.

    But it's only guilt-ridden, libertard muppets that have a downer on our outstanding historical achievements. They probably come from a long line of conchi. collaborators.

    Aren't universities lowering entry requirements for minorities to comply with some kind of bonkers social engineering quota?

    It is called post colonial guilt, apparently the white man (or white person to be politically correct) is responsible for all the world's problems.
    If a black person stabs another black person in London it is all the fault of the white racist society that black persons have to live in.

    That's nice for the pupils going to Oxbridge. The rest of the pupils in the borough might do better if they had five more teachers actually teaching.

    Local schools here are cutting hours and reducing subjects.

    Is that due to Nicola Sturgeon? -I recall she has been criticised for poor education standards
