On Thursday 1 November we were delighted to host a great Open Evening event at our Stanley Avenue site. We’ve had a high number of students and parents turning up for the evening and they found the experience extremely useful and informative.
Our student ambassadors gave the prospective students and parents tours around the school and provided useful information about our excellent learning facilities.
The visitors had an opportunity to meet our Year 12 and 13 students and also our Alumni, who were able to offer an insight into the student life at Alperton and the next steps towards university.
The teachers and staff offered advice and guidance on a wide range of subjects and answered questions about our course options and the sixth form application process.
The visitors were impressed with our learning facilities and with the excellent achievements of our students. Our A Level results this year exceeded all expectations, the results being significantly higher than the national results.
ACS students have been awarded 81 A* and A grades, with almost 50% of the examinations being awarded A*, A or B grades. As a result more than 40% of the A level cohort has been accepted onto top degree courses at prestigious Russell Group universities.
We are particularly pleased with continued strong performances in Maths and the sciences. Three quarters of students achieved grades A*/ A / B in Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths, Art, Media, ICT and Sociology. We are also pleased with the exceptional progress students make in Art, Business Studies, ICT, Media and Sociology.
Students from Alperton Community School are now represented in the following Russell Group universities: Oxford, Cambridge, London School of Economics, Imperial College, Warwick, Birmingham, York, Manchester, Bristol, University College London, King’s College London, Queen Mary and Southampton.
