Alec Reed Academy is a mixed all-through school and sixth form located in the Northolt area of the London Borough of Ealing, England. The school operates nursery, primary, secondary and sixth form departments for pupils ages 3 to 19.

Walford Secondary School was founded in 1955 as a secondary modern school for 11- to 16-year-olds;[1] it later became Walford High School under the comprehensive system. The school changed its name to Compton High School and Sports College in 2001,[2] after the Middlesex and England cricketer, Denis Compton.[3] In 2003 Compton High School and Northolt Primary School were merged on the same site to form West London Academy, one of the first academies to be created in England.[4] The school moved to new buildings on the same site in 2005.[5] In 2012 the West London Academy was renamed Alec Reed Academy, in honour of its sponsor, Alec Reed.

The school shares its campus with John Chilton School, a special school for pupils who have a physical and/or a medical disability.[6] Because of this the two schools share many facilities, and the entire campus is wheelchair accessible.
