Welcome to Langley Hall
Thank you for visiting the Langley Hall Primary Academy website
We hope that what you read and see will make you want to know more. The school is based on two sites: our Lower School site in St. Mary’s Road was the location for Langley’s original Village School. Our Upper School site is situated in the heart of Langley Village in a building dating back to the 1600s. The school opened in September 2011. It is part of the government’s Free School initiative in which members of the local community, businesses, parents or individuals can make a proposal for a new state school to open in their locality.
I made the proposal to open the school because there is a real need in the area for additional primary school places and because I believe that the vision and ethos I have for the school will make a positive impact on the education that local children can receive.
At our school we focus on preparing children for life. We do this by employing teachers who make learning imaginative, creative and inspiring. This motivates children to want to learn. We lay down firm foundations by giving numeracy and literacy a high priority. Art, drama, music, dance and sport also feature prominently to provide every child with the opportunity to find their talents and shine.
We want every child to be a good citizen, a good communicator, discerning and kind-hearted. We want them to challenge themselves and to be highly motivated to achieve their best working towards being independent.
The Christian Principles that underpin our school provide values and moral direction for children to develop the skills they need to become ‘well rounded’ citizens. Our school promise is for children to be happy at school and to leave us prepared for their next stage in life as confident independent learners, with high self-esteem and a sense of responsibility and tolerance in all they do.
At Langley Hall we are very proud of our academic and creative arts achievements. In 2019, Secretary of State for Education, Damian Hinds and Minister of State School Standards, Nick Gibbs wrote to the school to commend them on their academic achievements. They wrote “We would like to congratulate you on your very high level of progress that pupils in your school demonstrated in Reading, writing and mathematics. In terms of progress your school is amongst the top 3% of schools in England.”
In music children learn to play two or even three musical instruments by the age of 11 and each year more than 210* children sit and pass ABRSM music exams. No other single state school in England has more children sitting and passing music exams each year. Quite an achievement, I am sure you will agree!
