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 an amazing set of GCSE and A Level results in the 2017 examinations. The percentage of students achieving good grades in English and Maths at GCSE has increased by 14% since 2014. One in every four students achieved top grades G7-9 in English and Maths (top 3% in the country). Every student in our school achieves better than national expectation by over half a grade in all their GCSE. At A Level, 49% of the students achieved A*-B grade and almost 1 in 3 students gained entry to Russell Group Universities – 3 students were accepted to Oxbridge, 8 students were accepted to Medicine degrees, 2 students to Dentistry and 25 students to Computer Science degrees.
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 a new school building in January 2017. 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.
