We are extremely proud to welcome you to our Sixth Form. Our post-16 education has had some outstanding successes in the last few years and the progress made by our A- level students is significantly above the national and local averages. We achieve outstanding results in many subjects, but particularly in Mathematics, ICT, Computing and the Sciences.
We achieve these results because we have a highly skilled and motivated set of teachers who strongly believe in our school motto: ASPIRE | COMMIT | SUCCEED.
Our students tell us the difference our teachers make:
Alperton feels like a small family of students, supporting and helping one another with teachers who are like parents. Alperton is an amazing place to study.
lt was a great decision to stay at Alperton, the teachers were a great support and I’m very happy.
l feel that our success and results are the result of a joint effort from both students and teachers.
We are successful because we are able to offer a very broad curriculum: everything from Physics to Photography. Our curriculum covers A Level, Level 2 courses and a Level 1 offer – we have something for students of all abilities. We have a truly inclusive sixth form offer with vocational courses providing one day a week of work experience.
We have many opportunities for students to develop their personal and social skills. All students in the Sixth Form take part in Prefect Duties which can be as varied as reading with Year 6 students in a Primary School to helping to improve the school environment. We also have a rich and wide-ranging enrichment programme which includes the EPQ qualifcation, Sports Leaders Award, Arts Award and the annual residential opportunities available abroad or within the UK. The Sixth Form provides outstanding support for students who wish to apply to University through UCAS, culminating in practice interviews with real staff from top Russell Group Universities. Recently students have been successful in their applications to Cambridge, Imperial College, UCL and the London School of Economics (LSE).
The Alperton sixth form also offers the opportunity to take part in a wide range of volunteering and fund-raising opportunities. The most prestigious roles in the Sixth Form are Head Boy and Head Girl, which involves representing the school at key events in the community and advocating student voice on behalf of the entire student body. As a school, we also lead the way with Digital Technologies. All students have access to tablet PCs, which can revolutionise the way learning takes place in the classroom. We also offer a number of students a Bursary to attend our Sixth Form. Of course, Sixth Form students are very fortunate in having their own building which has a large computer suite, access to laptops and a Study Centre. We are a very welcoming school to students who join us in the Sixth Form from other institutions. These students constantly tell us how quickly they are made to feel at home. They are respected and cared for in the same way as students who have been with us for fve years. We are extremely proud of our Sixth Form and the results achieved by our students and our teachers.
