About Us

The history of Museum Learning
      at The Langley Academy

 

 

Before The Langley Academy opened, our sponsors were inspired by the New York Museum Schoolhttp://www.nycmuseumschool.org/

 

This is a relatively small school in Brooklyn that uses the wealth of inspiration from collections in New York to teach across the curriculum.

 

They believe that the experiential learning in museums and cultural sites of New York City gives students a "much better chance of comprehending the value of history, language, science and mathematics in everyday life and throughout the history of civilization"

Our
      Approach

 

We believe Museum Learning inspires students, empowers them with vital skills for learning and nurtures a cultural confidence to last a lifetime.

The Langley Academy has been a Museum Learning School since its inception. To create the systems and processes that bring Museum Learning to life we worked with students, teachers and our cultural sector partners. We also looked abroad to find organisations with a similar vision. Our approach will continue to evolve to match national curriculum changes, students needs and new cultural sector developments.

We are just starting to develop Museum Learning across Parlaunt Park Primary Academy and The Langley Academy Primary and are excited about creating an offer for children and young people from 4 – 18.
