Admissions

Most students enter Langley Grammar School in Year 7, through an 11+ academic selection process. There are occasional vacancies for places in other year groups.  A further group of students will join the Sixth Form.  More details are shown below. Additional information can also be found in the current school admissions policy.

Year 7
Boys and girls are eligible to be considered for admission to Langley Grammar School in Year 7 if they meet the required standard in the 11+ tests which are designed to identify pupils with the ability and aptitude for a grammar school education.  In the event of oversubscription, up to 10% of the places will be allocated to pupils who also demonstrate a high level of musical aptitude. The school is part of an 11+ testing consortium with Herschel Grammar School, Slough Grammar School, and St Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School. For further details of the 11+ admissions process, go to 11+ admission.

Year 8 – 11
Admission to other year groups will be subject to the availability of places, and the demonstration of a comparable standard of ability to the year group in question. This will be determined by tests set by the school, and by a favourable report from the applicant’s current school.

Sixth Form
The great majority of Year 11 students at Langley Grammar School stay on to the Sixth Form, and we also welcome a small number of students transferring from other schools.

Students hoping to take an AS or A level course should have a good GCSE profile usually including at least a grade B in any subject which they wish to study at AS or A level. The majority who enter the Sixth Form have seven or more sound GCSE passes and we will only consider students with five or more GCSE passes at grade C or above. These must include English and mathematics at grade C or above.

We normally only accept students with an average GCSE points score of 45 or above, calculated using the following points for each grade: A* = 58, A = 52, B = 46, C = 40, D = 34, E = 28, F = 22, G = 16.
