Aspire, Commit, Succeed

We are a large, mixed, 11-18 academy with over 300 students in our sixth form. Due to our increased popularity as a school, we have expanded our roll from 10 to 12 form-entry from September 2018. Alperton Community School is proud to be an inclusive comprehensive school with a student intake that reflects a wonderfully diverse and vibrant local community. Our most recent Ofsted rating in July 2016 recognised the school as Good with Outstanding Leadership and Management. 

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 7% of schools nationally for student progress at GCSE (Progress 8 = +0.47) and ranked in the top 1% for maths and the top 9% for English. The school has been graded as “above average” in the 2018 DfE Performance Tables. 

We are very fortunate to have a brand new school building which opened in the summer term. The new building has 83 classrooms with purpose-built specialist Drama, Music, Art and DT facilities as well as 14 Science laboratories, 10 ICT rooms, a Dance Studio, an Activity Studio, an enormous Sports Hall and outdoor MUGA. Every classroom is equipped with state-of-the-art ICT facilities. We are very fortunate to have extensive outdoor spaces which are set aside for break and lunchtime activities. 

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.
