20 Nigerian Students Of Brampton Manor Academy Break Into Best UK Universities by scholes0(m): 3:50am On Aug 22
This school was all over the news last year, and they have done it again this year.



It was all joy and smiles for the 51 A-level students of Brampton Manor Academy in the East Ham area of London who had secured university admissions into the U.K's most prestigious universities known locally as the "Ox-bridge", a portmanteau of the two oldest, classiest and richest universities to study competitive courses. Meanwhile, more than 100 received straight A and A* GCSE grades for a third year running in the same school. Many of these students are from ethnic minority backgrounds, and Nigerians especially seem to stand out. The performance is sterling says executive principal Dr Dayo Olukoshi: "These offers reward the academic brilliance and dedication of our students", he added

Other pupils are heading to Russell Group universities including Warwick, King’s College London, Imperial College, London school of Economics, St Andrews and Durham, taking up places on courses including law, economics and biomedical sciences including medicine. Graduates from these schools hold 61% of all UK jobs that require a university degree, despite being only 17% of all higher education graduates.

Perhaps the most distinguishing factor of the Brampton manor academy is the fact that it is a state run school situated in one of the lesser privileged areas of town, and yet, the school's success bests the admission rates of some of the top-performing private schools across the UK. The school's academic policy is "Getting the students to shake off the idea that Oxford and Cambridge are just for an “elite” couple of students and encourage everyone to apply.’ And that seems to be working very well for the previous couple of years. In 2014, one student received an Oxbridge offer and in 2018, that had grown to 25 - For the current year, the number stands at 51, a record. The school’s success comes after figures revealed that state school pupils have been offered 69 per cent of the undergraduate places at Oxford – a record high.

The school Principal, Mr Dayo Olukoshi who has since taken the institution to heights never attained before joined Brampton Manor as the Principal/headteacher in 2008, having previously worked as a teacher and senior leader in various UK schools since 1992. He has been awarded an OBE (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for Services to Education.

The school has the best student performance and highest rank in Newham East London, and has been ranked as one of the 50 best secondary schools in the United Kingdom for the fourth year running.

See my omoluabi guys making waves everywhere they go.

God bless you Mr Dayo (Principal) for your giant stride in making sure minorities also have the opportunity of getting admitted to the prestigious Oxbridge universities in such huge numbers.

Last year was 41 students while this year it increased to 51 admissions into Oxbridge institutions.

I won’t stop without saying YORUBA LAGBA!

It is a great feat because it’s coming from a single school which is a public school where most of the students are from ethnic minority backgrounds and the government had to support almost half of the school with free meals.

Last year, the school trended for so long because of the number of students they produced going to Oxbridge.

See CNN below. Can you see how they hyped the school? It is worth celebrating and Nigerians are known as high achievers generally around the world.

But on a more serious note, taking a second look at this list and reminiscing on the history of Nigeria made me sad for some few moments.

To be honest, the afonjazees have messed up Nigeria. So when it comes to hardwork, diligence, knowledge and almost every other important positive HDIs' the Igbos and Yorubas are almost always on the top. But instead of the yorubas to merge together and develop a unified vision or mission with the Igbos in Nigeria, they chose to sabotage the Igbos and at the same time play a second fiddle to the fulanis whom they are in every way better than.

What yorubas Muslims have done to the great Yoruba nation is honestly unpardonable!!

Oga, I'm not belittling anything. I'm happy with the news, but I'm just saying it's not something that calls for a nationwide celebration. Celebrating this kind of news makes us even look less serious.

So you're telling me that if say 20 Chinese students or even South African students got admission into a UK Ivy league, while none of their schools is in the top 1000 colleges that these countries will pop Champaign?

Listen, there's something called national pride, and believe me whenever I hear Nigerians talk, I don't get to see that. Infact, if anything, I see the opposite of it.

At this stage, what a nation that had its independence since 1960 should be celebrating is that her citizen got admission in a UK top school. Are you kidding me?? While countries that birthed many years after us are celebrating having schools that run exchange programs with top schools in UK and US.

To be honest, I love this news. But it kinda makes me sick when the west throws garbage at us and we start rejoicing over it. Does that make sense??

I already kind of knew from the start that your main grouse with the news is not that this achievement isn't newsworthy, but rather the composition of the achievers.

But back to your fallacious post, if you are a real student of history then you would have known that for most of Nigeria's existence starting from the first republic- Yorubas have always been in the opposition, while the Igbos and Hausa-Fulanis have always been bed partners. But the good thing is that you can't hide the truth, especially when It is glaring. Let's look at the timeline of those who have ruled Nigeria since independence


1960-1963 — Azikiwe/Balewa
1963-1966 — Azikiwe/Balewa
1967-1979 — Civil war/ Military Rule
1979-1983 — Shagari/Ekwueme
1983-1999 — Military Rule
1999-2007 — Obasanjo/Atiku
2007-2010 — Yar'Adua/Jonathan
2010-2015 — Jonathan/Sambo
2015-Date — Buhari/Osinbajo

Now look at the list and tell me when this "Yorubas playing second fiddle to the Fulanis" fable became a thing among you people? Azikiwe in fact neglected Awolowo's handshake across the Niger and instead chose to go play second fiddle as a ceremonial president to prime minister Balewa who had the real power. He also frustrated Chief Awolowo's plan to include the secession clause in the constitution.

On the issue of Southern Unity, did you know that Chief Awolowo picked an Igbo running mate. Yet, the Igbo voted en masse for Shagari, an illiterate Northerner to spite Awolowo and the Yoruba. In fact, the Igbo wanted Abacha to continue ruling, matter of fact, the [Youth Earnestly Ask for Abacha (YEAA)] campaign was led by an Igbo man, by the name Daniel Kanu. They even voted against Abiola who had wide acceptance across the board in Nigeria, including huge swathes of the North, and instead chose to support Tofa the Northern candidate whose collabo partner was an Igbo vice by the name Sylvester Ugoh who also happened to be the defunct governor of the central Bank of Biafra (shame). Abiola won in only 1 out of the then 4 Eastern states

—The Igbo had no problem with collaborating with the North when they supported Atiku and Peter Obi or in all previous occasions. They only have issues with Northern collaboration when they aren't the bedmates and someone else is doing the 'collaborating' lipsrsealed

Ode, before you start shouting yorubas dominating the list, just know that the list is not a complete picture of the number of students from Nigeria admitted to UK ivy League, it's just a serialised list - mentioned only few names that suits the fantasy of the writer.

But as usual and as expected a complete list that is not serialised which is the jamb list was dominated by the IGBOS. Forget it, there should be no comparison between Igbos and Yorubas on anything positive in Nigeria.

I don’t know how I missed this comment. If I had known you are another hateful Ibo, I wouldn’t have dignified you with a sensible reply.

I had this kind of argument with one Ibo guy (Tobrasky) before about sampling number of Nigerians in USA universities that are Yoruba and Igbos. When he saw the result of the sampling we both did together, he had no choice than to accept the Yorubas are more than the Igbos in USA universities based on our sampling size.

Go to this thread below, starting from page 72.
https://www.nairaland.com/5788620/what-does-west-produce-compares/72

You will just wound yourself by thinking you can compare the number of Yorubas student in the UK with the Igbos. Either in UK top schools or lower schools, it is incomparable.

Lastly, about the Jamb top 10 students, I think we are both seeing a different list because if you are making reference to that list up there, the Yorubas are 6 on the list out of 13 candidates. Igbos in that list are not up to 4. Also, almost 90% of the schools those candidate chose are domiciled in the SW.

I don’t want to go down this path of stupid comparison today but I just think I should set the record straight with you.

^^^^,

First, you should be ashamed that a list with 10 students, has the first and second students all Igbos and no other tribe. That shows respect!!.

Second, you've shown the notoriety attached with your lying people, which is that you guys are good at spinning. That list has only 3 yorubas (non tied) in it, and I'm sure if JAMB was to release their first 100 students, Igbos again will be topping the chart undisputably.

Lastly, you've also exposed your half baked knowledge which is also notorious with your people. There's not a single data any where in the world that has a list of all the igbos and Yorubas students in foreign universities - except a list conjured up from your sorry ass. So how you were able to compare the number of Yoruba vs Igbo students is at best comical. But I'm not surprise, because you guys are just dumb liars.
