About Us

Alperton Community School is a specialist coeducational secondary school and sixth form with academy status. It has specialisms in maths, computing and the arts, and is located in the Alperton area of the London Borough of Brent. The school is committed to helping each student to be the very best they can be within a supportive, caring and highly inclusive community.


In July 2016 the Ofsted report judged the school to be “Good with Outstanding Leadership and Management”.

We are in the top 4% of schools in terms of student progress. Our GCSE and A Level results last year were the best the school has ever achieved. More than one third of our A level cohort has been accepted onto degree courses at prestigious Russell Group universities.

The A level results are significantly higher than the national results and the progress made by pupils studying ICT, Economics and Psychology were placed in the top 10 chools across the country.

In January 2017, we also moved into a new building, which benefits from some of the most advanced and sophisticated learning facilities. The new school has 83 classrooms, all fitted with Promethean’s interactive white boards that have build-in award winning software, allowing for a more engaging and interactive learning experience in the classroom. The new building is arranged on three floors and has a very large and well-stocked library, 14 science laboratories, 10 ICT rooms, 5 art rooms, 2 music rooms, 2 drama studios, 6 design and technology rooms and a dining hall capable of accommodating 450 students at a single sitting. The school will also have a new Sports Hall, that will be able to accommodate four badminton courts and three cricket practice nets and a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA).

The Upper School, a fine traditional building which was previously Wembley County Grammar School, is only a few minutes away and includes a newly built Sixth Form centre, and specialist Technology, Drama and Art facilities.

We are very proud of our school and our aim is to enable every student to reach their full academic and personal potential by instilling a passion for learning.
