Stephen Timms, the MP for East Ham, recently visited Brampton Manor School. Alongside discussing the school’s future ambitions, the visit allowed Mr Timms to congratulate staff and pupils for the most recent GCSE results – the most successful in the school’s history. 

On his arrival, Mr Timms was met by theHeadteacher, Dr Olukoshi and Deputy Head, Peter Whittle. The three discussed the state of education within the Borough and what the Government can continue to do to help schools in Newham build on their recent successes. 

Mr Timms was shown a letter that the school recently received from the Schools Minister, Vernon Coaker MP congratulating them on being amongst the top performing schools, based on the KS2-4 Contextual Value Added measure. 

Mr Timms was then shown the school’s new all-purpose theatre, which will be officially opened on 4 February 2010. The theatre has been built as part of the Government’s Building Schools for the Future programme. In addition to the new theatre, the school will soon have a brand new TV and media suite. 

Speaking afterwards, Mr Timms said: “I would like to congratulate Brampton Manor on a set of record-breaking results! Everybody at the school can be truly proud of what has been achieved. The students have worked extremely hard to achieve their results and I wish them all the very best in whatever they choose to do next.

"Thanks to the Building Schools for the Future Programme, the pupils at Brampton Manor are directly benefiting from the superb facilities available to them.”
