Alperton Hall a mansion was purchased for a school to support the educational needs of the growing industrial town and opened in 1922 with the overseeing headmaster Mr Edmund Lightley. In 1928 the school adopted the name Wembley County Grammar School and the original mansion was demolished in 1938 to allow for a new appropriate site to be built for a traditional grammar school.
A separate school on Ealing Road named Alperton County Mixed School was developed in 1948 on a new site near Alperton tube station on Kennedy's Farm which required the demolition of the adjacent Joy Cottages sitting alongside the station. The requirement grew from the previous local school named Alperton School, which had existed since 1876 on a site now hosting the Shree Sanatan Hindu temple, becoming inappropriate due to the Education Act of 1944 and the increased demand because of area growth. In 1957 the school was split into Alperton Boys and Alperton Girls both being shaped into secondary moderns with Mr T. Hostler as headmaster for boys and Miss J. Dawson head teacher for girls respectively, although officially the girls site was not completed until 1962.
The three schools, Wembley County Grammar, Alperton Boys, and Alperton Girls were amalgamated as to form Alperton High School in 1967. Mr Roy Innes was recruited as the headmaster to see through the new comprehensive school merger and development and after a decade retired in 1977.
During the early 90's through the Local Management of Schools (LMS) initiative the school took control over its own finances and in 1993 was renamed Alperton Community School. From 1991, Mr Pankaj Gulab as Deputy Head saw through the change to a local managed school and in 1992 he became the headmaster.Ron Greenwood (1932–35), England Football manager and player
