Year 7 entry
As an academy Langley Grammar School operates as its own admissions authority and collaborates in an 11+ testing consortium with Herschel, St Bernard’s Catholic and Upton Court Grammar Schools for entry to Year 7.
Admission to any of the four grammar schools in Slough is based on reaching an eligibility score in the consortium 11+ examination. Any child reaching a score of 111 on a standardised scale (this score represents approximately the top third of the 11+ examination outcome range) is deemed potentially suitable for a grammar school place and is eligible for consideration for admission. However, each of the four schools have different criteria for admission in the event
The Admissions arrangements for Langley Grammar School set out a Local Admission Area and a General Admission Area, both defined by postcode.
The Local Admission Area comprises postcode areas SL3 7, SL3 8 and SL3 0. SL3 7 and SL3 8 are the postcode areas surrounding the school, covering the great majority of the Langley area. SL3 0 covers the area of Colnbrook and Poyle, which is also part of the Borough of Slough. The three postcode areas include all the primary schools (maintained schools, academies and free schools) in Langley, Colnbrook and Poyle. The General Admission Area comprises a wider set of postcodes covering the rest of Slough and the surrounding areas in Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and west London.
The school routinely has more applicants for entry than it has places. The over-subscription criteria gives first priority to applicants with a permanent home address within the Local Admission Area, who have achieved the eligibility of score of 111 in the 11+ entrance examination. The rest of the available places are then prioritised for applicants living in the wider General Admission Area, and allocated according to the remaining criteria of:
- Eligibility for free school meals
- Children of permanent members of staff
- Rank order of performance in the examination

Expansion from 5 to 6 forms of entry
Prospective parents should be aware that the Governors have agreed to expand Langley Grammar School from 5 forms of entry (150 pupils) to 6 forms of entry (180 pupils) from September 2017, providing an additional 30 places in Year 7 in that year and in subsequent years. This is to help address the issue of providing sufficient places for the rapidly rising numbers of pupils in Slough.

Admission to other year groups
Langley Grammar is a very popular school and as such is always very heavily over subscribed. Admissions after the initial year of entry in year 7, will depend on the availability of a place, and the suitability of the student for a grammar school education as determined by the school's assessment procedures. Any applicant who has previously sat the Consortium 11+ admission examination but did not attain a score of at least 111 at that time will not be eligible for consideration for entry to years 8-11.
