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.
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.
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.
