“The resources provided by teachers in many subjects are fantastic and

will help you achieve the best grade possible. The overall quality of

learning is outstanding.“ (Student, Year 12)


A LEVEL RESULTS 2018

Alperton Community School students have again exceeded all

expectations with a tremendous set of A Level results. They have been

awarded 81 A* and A grades, with almost 50% of the examinations being

awarded A*, A or B grades. As a result, more than 40% of students from

the A level cohort have been accepted onto top degree courses at

prestigious Russell Group universities.

We are particularly pleased with continued strong performances in Maths

and the sciences. Three quarters of students achieved grades A*/ A / B in

Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths, Art, Media, ICT and Sociology. We are

especially pleased with the exceptional progress students make in Art,

Business Studies, ICT, Media and Sociology.

ICT continued to be a very successful and popular subject with 96% of all

students achieving the highest grade of Distinction*. The 2018 results are a

further improvement on last year’s results which showed academic A Level

results to be higher than the national results.

(Sixth Form Student)


7 REASONS TO CHOOSE ALPERTON SIXTH FORM

1. We put you first

It’s your life, your future, so we’ll help you put together a programme of study that gets you

where you want to go. You can use our open evenings, our bridging week in the Summer

Term to look at what subjects to take at A Level. We will also sit down with you and talk

through your options in detail at your one-to-one interview. At every stage, we’re here to

listen, advise and support you in your choices.

2. We will provide the best teaching

Our teachers are friendly, experienced, and creative in delivery and real experts in their

subjects. Above all, they’re committed to helping you get the grades you need for whatever

you plan to do next. We are very proud that many of our students meet and exceed their

target grades.

3. We are your kind of people

At Alperton Sixth Form, you’ll be with like-minded people who want to work hard, do well

and get on in life. We’re a tight-knit community of around 350 students and you’ll fit right

in with our high achieving ethos and aspirations.

4. It’s tought at the top, not!

We are consistently in the top 25% for progress of all schools and Colleges in England. Also,

Oxford Analytics Research, an independent company has shown that three of our subjects

at A Level are in the top 12 performing subjects in the country for progress for those

subjects. That’s top 12, looking at more than 2500 institutions! That’s beyond fantastic!

5. We support you with the next steps

Whatever you hope to do after Sixth Form, our dedicated Sixth Form Team will help get

you there. They specialise in UCAS coaching and preparation for university interviews – in

2014 and 2015, more than 90% of our students went on to study at university. The team

can also help you plan a gap year, go on to other types of study or find your first real job or

apprenticeship.

We have a dedicated team of tutors to support you during your transition and every week

during mentoring. They know how to support Sixth Form students and they have been

handpicked to be part of the Sixth Form team. This will ensure you get the best possible

support at all times. We want your dreams to come true!

7. Where everybody knows your name

It’s always a bit overwhelming to start a new season somewhere else. Research has shown

that students achieve best when they stay in their own school. This is because the teachers

know you! They know how to support you and bring out the best in you! We are a Sixth

Form that continues to inspire, continues to achieve and help you be the best you can

possibly be!
