Be the best we can be



New Students

We always aim to meet the needs of every individual. After a visit by a leading HMI, her report stated that 'students and staff create a very welcoming atmosphere and take an obvious pride in the school. The expectation that all members of the school community will treat each other with courtesy and consideration is shared by staff and students. This was an evident strength of the school at break and lunchtime during the visit where students treated each other and staff in a friendly and respectful manner.'

We recognise the importance of a smooth transition and support new students by:

  • Sending a team of staff to visit all main partner primary schools. This allows us to gather a detailed profile of every student and to talk to all students, providing them with instant answers to questions they may have.
  • Inviting all new students and parents to an individual telephone interview with an experienced member of staff prior to arrival at Langley. This enables us to answer any concerns and allows every student to overcome anxieties.
  • Providing a fully structured induction day in the summer to allow students to familiarise themselves with the school, meet their tutors and sample a variety of new subjects. Following this, in the evening, parents are invited to school to meet the Headteacher, Head of Year, Form Tutors and other key staff.

As a result of all this, students arrive in September with confidence, ready to engage and learn.
