Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to the Acton High School website. Here you will find everything you need to know about the school and what it can offer your son or daughter.

While Acton High is proud to be able to trace its history back for more than a century, our recent successes are where we find the greatest cause for celebration. Summer 2017 saw Acton High’s best ever A Level results and vastly improved outcomes at GCSE, particularly in English and Maths.

Our students excel not just in their academic endeavours, but also in creative and performing arts and in sports and other extra-curricular activities. We encourage that broad approach to excellence, helping students realise and develop their talents across a spectrum of subjects and activities.

We are proud also of our school ethos. We are a community comprehensive that serves a culturally diverse and rich population. We celebrate that in all we do and our annual International Day in July is an important event in the school calendar.

We have high expectations of our students. We recognise the variety of barriers students can face, but do not accept them as excuses. Instead, we work with students and their families to overcome and remove those barriers and propel our young people to success. We expect our commitment to students to be matched by their commitment to school, and our Acton Way codifies our expectations of how every member of the school community works to support one another.

Our approach is designed to prepare students for the rest of their lives by giving them the qualifications, skills, experiences and values they will need to thrive. It works. Our alumni go onto top universities, apprenticeships, training and employment.

Our weekly Parents’ Update provides a regular bulletin of news and events from school and I encourage you to read recent editions to gain a full flavour of life at Acton High.

If we sound like the kind of school in which your son or daughter would thrive, contact us and arrange to come and find out more.
