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”.
The school achieved excellent GCSE results in 2019. The percentage of students achieving five GCSEs at Grades 4+(A*-C) including English and maths has increased by 24% over the last four years and now stands at 66%. Since 2016 Alperton Community School has been ranked in the first quintile (highest category) in all areas e.g. most able students, lower attaining students, pupil premium. As a result, the school has been graded “above average” and “well above average” in the DfE Performance Tables for the last three years. Our students perform extremely well in our sixth form. ACS students have been awarded 90 A* and A grades, with over 50% of the examinations being awarded A*, A or B grades. We currently have six students studying at Oxbridge with many more attending 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.
