Alperton Community School is an inclusive, comprehensive school with a student intake that reflects a wonderfully diverse and vibrant local community. We are a large, mixed, 11-18 academy with over 300 students in our sixth form.
Our students have a passion for learning and are truly welcoming and respectful. Learning takes place in a culture of mutual respect, where our caring, expert staff delivers high quality teaching and learning to help students achieve their ambitions.
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.
The school achieved its best ever set of GCSE results in 2018. The percentage of students achieving five good GCSEs (Grade 4+/A*-C) including English and maths has increased by 22% over the last four years and now stands at 64%. Over the last few years the school has been ranked in the top 5% of schools nationally for student progress at GCSE (Progress 8 = +0.51), and ranked in the top 1% for maths and the top 9% for English. The school has been graded in the highest category “well above average” in both 2016 and 2017 DfE Performance Tables.
Our most recent Ofsted rating in July 2016 recognised the school as Good with Outstanding Leadership and Management.
We are very fortunate to have opened our new school building in the summer term. The new building has purpose-built specialist Drama, Music, Art and DT facilities, as well as 14 Science laboratories, 10 ICT rooms and a new MUGA.
We are extremely proud of our school and if you wish to join our team, we would love to hear from you.
