We are a large, mixed, 11-18 academy with over 350 students in our sixth form. Due to our increased popularity as a school, we expanded our roll in September 2018. Alperton Community School is an inclusive school with a student intake that reflects a wonderfully diverse and vibrant local community. Our students are very well behaved, work hard and are ambitious to succeed. Our most recent Ofsted inspection in July 2021 graded our school as Good "Pupils like coming to school and they enjoy their lessons"; "Pupils can focus because they feel safe"; "Leaders’ expectations of all pupils are high"; "Pupils behave well in school. They focus on their learning in lessons. Pupils follow teachers’ instructions and listen to one another".
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’ progress 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.
We are very fortunate to have a brand new school building. 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, a very large sports hall and three outdoor MUGAs. Every classroom is equipped with state-of-the-art ICT facilities. We are very fortunate to have extensive outdoor spaces for break and lunchtime activities as well as a 6 acre sports campus.
Our school has become internationally recognised following the success of our Art and Textiles teacher Andria Zafirakou who won the $1million Global Teacher Prize recently. The school was recently shortlisted for the TES School of the Year and won the TES Maths Team of the Year. 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.
Our teachers and support staff are well-qualified, friendly and committed to student achievement.
This is an exceptional opportunity. It will offer the successful candidate a friendly, highly supportive and committed working environment within a culture of success and professional growth.
