Alperton Community School has produced an excellent set of results at GCSE. This year we have improved our attainment score and increased the number of students achieving the highest grades in spite of a national drop in GCSE outcomes.
The results for the most able students were exceptional with 32% of students achieving the top grades (9-7) in English and maths. There were 182 grades at 9-7 in the sciences – biology, chemistry and physics. In total, Alperton Community School students achieved 658 grades at 9-7.
Our students achieved 151 of the highest possible grades (Grade 9) results with 45 Grade 9s in English and maths.
The progress students have made since their primary school is excellent, particularly given the school time lost during COVID. The school has achieved a huge increase in the percentage of students achieving grades 5 and above in English and maths, with two thirds of students achieving a strong pass in these subjects in 2022. 47% of students achieved above their expected grade in English and 62% above their expected grade in maths. Our special congratulations go to our sociology students, 80% of whom achieved above their expected grade.
Ritesh Makvana was very pleased with Grade 9 in English literature, maths, further maths, biology, chemistry, physics, geography and Gujarati; he said “I am so pleased with my results. It has been hard work but with all the support received from the school, I am now one step closer to achieving my aspirations.”
Mazneen Kaleelur Rahuman was also very pleased with seven Grade 9s and three Grade 8s. She said “I am very happy that all my hard work has paid off. A big thank you to all the teachers and staff at Alperton who have given so much of their time to help us achieve these results.”
Artur Zhemchuzhnikov made exceptional progress since arriving from Ukraine at the start of Year 10. He achieved a Grade 7 in religious studies, Grade 6 in both English language and literature as well as Grade 5s in business, geography and science. He was really happy with his results and said: “I would like to thank my teachers – they have helped me achieve so much since I arrived at Alperton. I am looking forward to studying for my A Levels in the Sixth Form.”
Gerard McKenna, Headteacher, said “once again, our students have performed exceptionally well at GCSE despite all the challenges they had to overcome. I believe we achieved excellent outcomes because we aspire to provide every student with an outstanding education within a supportive, vibrant and stimulating learning environment. We have established a strong track record of enabling every student to reach their full academic and personal potential. I am sure that our results will improve again next year, now that we are back to normal in our new school building, providing our students with the best possible facilities and resources”.
