I am extremely proud to welcome you as Headteacher of Langley Park School for Boys. We are a school which has a great tradition of turning out confident, articulate, intelligent and adaptable young people and our aim is to continue to raise standards even further in the future. Our GCSE results continue to be excellent year on year, with both outcomes and progress consistently performing significantly above the national average. Our large co-educational Sixth Form is also exceptional and our A level pass rate is very high with almost 60% of students achieving the highest grades of A*-B. Each year over 80% of our Sixth Form students take up university places and a significant number of these are with prestigious Russell Group universities.
However, Langley Park School for Boys will always be about much more than just the academic, and we believe very strongly in educating the ‘whole child’.
We continue to thrive and enjoy enormous success in sport with rugby, hockey, cricket and athletics teams all reaching local and national finals in recent years.
We also have exceptional talent in the Performing Arts, and our music, dance and drama departments put on a wide variety of musical and theatrical performances every year, taking full advantage of our modern fully equipped theatre.
All of our students also get the opportunity to take part in numerous outdoor education activities with Borrowdale Camp in the Lake District, and the Dover Camp residential visits being an annual feature of the school calendar.
All of these wonderful opportunities are presented in a fantastic modern building by a team of exceptionally talented and dedicated teachers and support staff, who like our students are always prepared to ‘go the extra mile.’
I look forward to meeting you when you visit the school, and I wish your sons and daughters every success and happiness in their time with us.
Mr S. Parsons
