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 2021 the Ofsted report judged the school to be “Good with Outstanding Leadership and Management”.
Student progress at GCSE and A Level has been above national averages for many years with disadvantaged students performing well above national averages. Our progress 8 score has been consistently “above average”. We also see high numbers of our students progressing to Oxbridge and Russell Group Universities. Student attendance and the percentage of students who remain in education, employment or training are also well above national averages.
In May 2022, Alperton Community School was awarded the Pearson National Silver Award for Making a Difference – Secondary School of the Year for their outstanding commitment to changing the lives of the children they work with every day.
Our school has become internationally recognised following the success of our former 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.
We are also very fortunate to have a brand new school building which 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 has also a new Sports Hall, that can accommodate four badminton courts and three cricket practice nets and two 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.
