On Thursday 30 November, our Sixth Form hosted a fantastic Open Evening at our Stanley Avenue site. A very high number of students and parents turned up for the evening and they found the experience extremely useful and informative.
“I am impressed with all the facilities and activities the school has to offer. The students and teachers were very helpful in providing the information I was after. ” (James, Prospective student)
Our student ambassadors gave students and parents tours throughout the evening and offered information about the facilities available in the school.
The Sixth form teachers offered advice and guidance on a wide range of subjects, answering questions about our course options and the sixth form application process.
The prospective students had an opportunity to also meet our students from both Year 12 and
13 and our Alumni students, who were able to give them an insight into the student life at Alperton school and the next steps towards university.
This year, our sixth form 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”.
