which is primarily as a result of good teaching and very positive relationships across the whole academy.’ Ofsted
In our view, schools should provide an education that enables and empowers students to live full and enriched lives; not only while they attend, but also once they have left school. We have very high expectations and as a result we expect students to achieve excellent results and to go on to the very best universities. However, it is also our view that the greatest qualification is not just the list of grades you achieve in each subject, but the person you become. Our expectations are built on this core belief and so we place a great emphasis on the qualities of honesty, integrity, work ethic, selflessness, resilience, teamwork, innovation and initiative. Employers look for these qualities – qualities that will support a stronger economy and underpin the skills that our social structure, families and friends depend upon.
We provide unique opportunities for all with a philosophy that is based on creating an atmosphere that allows students to become confident, independent and creative. Our strapline ‘curiosity, exploration and discovery’ supports this ethos and encourages us to think differently and in a way that challenges students so that they develop into young adults capable of competing favourably in an ever changing job market. We believe pride and achievement are created with a serious work ethic and an aspiration to be the best we can be.
I am truly inspired by our students and I am in no doubt that The Langley Academy is a very special place supported by a remarkably talented group of staff within a vibrant and diverse community. I am sure that you will agree with this once you have visited us.
