Year 13 Alperton Community School students have again exceeded all expectations with an excellent set of A Level results. With some results yet to come in, ACS students have been awarded 90 A* and A grades, with over 50% of the examinations being awarded A*, A or B grades. As a result, many of our students have been accepted at prestigious Russell Group universities.
We are particularly pleased with continued strong performances in English, Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Media. We are especially pleased with the exceptional progress students made in Business Studies, Economics, ICT, Sociology and Psychology.
ICT continued to be a very successful and popular subject with almost all students achieving the highest grades of Distinction and Distinction*. The 2019 results are a further improvement on last year’s results which showed Alperton Community School to be higher than the national average.
