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”.
Our GCSE and A Level results in 2018 were the best the school has ever achieved. The progress students have made from their primary school is exceptional. In the last few years, the school has achieved a huge increase in the percentage of students achieving grade 4 and above equivalent in English and maths. In 2018, 66% of students made better than expected progress in English and over 50% of students made better than expected progress in maths.
At A Level, our students have exceeded all expectations with a tremendous set of A Level results. With some results yet to come in, 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.
Our school has become internationally recognised following the success of our Art and Textiles teacher Andria Zafirakou who won the $1million Global Teacher Prize 2018. The school has been shortlisted for the TES School of the Year 2018 and won the TES Maths Team of the Year 2017. We are one of only four schools in the country to hold the Platinum Professional Development Mark and one of only 100 schools to hold the Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence.
We are also very fortunate to have a brand new school building which was fully open in the summer term. 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.
