Sixth Form Open Evening, Thursday 30 November

We invite all prospective students and parents to our Open Evening, on Thursday 30 November, 6pm-8pm at our Stanley Avenue site.

Our Open Evening  is a great opportunity for prospective students to meet our staff and students whilst exploring the Sixth Form facilities we have to offer.

Sixth form subject teachers will be providing advice and guidance on the wide range of subjects we have on offer, answering any questions you may have about your chosen course options and the sixth form application process.

You will meet students from both Year 12 and 13 and find out what it is like to be a Sixth Form student at Alperton Community School.

This is also a great opportunity for you to meet some of our Alumni students who can give you an insight into the next steps and university life.

Our student ambassadors will be giving students tours throughout the evening and there will be opportunities to find out more about each of the subjects you are interested in.

This year, our students exceeded all expectations in the A Level examinations, achieving results that are significantly higher than national results.

Our students were awarded 60 A* and A grades, with almost half of the examinations being awarded A*, A or B grades. As a result, more than a third of our A level students were accepted onto degree courses at a prestigious Russell Group university.

Students from Alperton Community School are now represented in the following Russell Group universities: London School of Economics, Imperial College, Manchester University, Bristol University, University College London, Kings College London, Queen Mary University London.

We make our students’ ambitions become a reality through mentoring and an individual programme of support. When you join our Sixth Form you are not only enrolling in your academic courses, but into a school that will provide you with lots of challenges to ensure you get to where you want to be.

Omaima Ali (A*A*A*) who achieved her lifetime ambition to train to become a doctor began her course in Medicine at Oxford University in September.  Omaima said “I have really enjoyed all my time at Alperton Community School. The teachers really care about us and push us hard to achieve our ambitions”.

James Simkins (A*A*A*A) and Shahir Ahmadi (A*A*A) both went to Cambridge University.  James is studying a degree in Chemical Engineering while Shahir is studying Natural Sciences.  James said “I am so proud of my results and the results of my friends.  I would like to thank the teachers who helped me to achieve my dreams”.

Brent Young Carers visit Alperton

On Wednesday 18 October, Vicky and Simone from Brent Young Carers team visited our year 7 and year 8 students and talked about what a young carer is and what support Brent Young Carers can offer. The assembly was very informative and the students really enjoyed the experience.

Please see below our photo gallery.

 

 

Stitch and Knit Show at Alexandra Palace

On 12 October our Year 9 and Year 10 students went on a trip to Stitch and Knit Show at Alexandra Palace. The students really enjoyed the trip, which consisted of hundreds of workshops, demonstrations, interactive features and professionally curated galleries.

Almost 60 students went to see Textile and Craft artists and graduates from all over the UK. Our students were fantastic – polite, confident and inquisitive! Many thanks to all staff that helped organising the event and to our school for funding this trip.

Fantastic Open Evening at Alperton School


Dear Parents/ Carers of Y5 and Y6 students,

We opened our doors to record numbers of families at our Open evening on 27th September. Have a look at some of the comments made by the children and their parents below. We are pleased that so many families have given us such positive feedback and have let us know that we are their first choice school. If you are fortunate enough to be offered a place at our school, we are sure that your child will ‘Aspire, Commit and Succeed’ in their learning journey with us.

Please do not hesitate to contact me via the school office if you have any questions.
