Langley Grammar School

Computing and IT professional development

Langley Grammar School has a long history of involvement in continuing professional development in ICT and Computing, including specialist school status in Maths and Computing. 

More recently, the school was designated one of the first National Computing Hubs in 2019. We work in partnership with STEM Learning, Teach Computing and other organisations to provide a range of support for primary and secondary computing teachers in schools and colleges in their area, including teaching, resources and CPD activities.

There are 34 Computing Hubs across England, led by schools and colleges with excellence in teaching computing. These Hubs support schools and colleges to provide a high-quality computing education to all young people.

We are an Apple Distinguished School in recognition of our use of iPads for teaching and learning, and are designated as an Apple Regional Training Centre to promote and run CPD events focusing on the effective use of Apple technology in schools.

Loaning Physical Kits

We can provide your school with hardware help with the teaching of coding and computer-related subjects. From October 2021 we will have available class sets of the following devices with all of the peripherals you will need to teach a unit from the teachcomputing curriculum for loan.

  • Crumbles
  • Micro:bits
  • Raspberry Pi Picos

We can also provide CPD on how to use the physical kits.

Please submit your request into the form here, along with anything else you would like to know related to the request.

Needs Analysis

We can complete a one-hour review of your computing provision in your primary or secondary school and help you develop your computing curriculum through a needs analysis.

Take the opportunity to have a ‘Health check' where we can find out more about the delivery of computing in your school. We can generate a report that will identify how you can utilise the wider range of free support we provide, including; CPD, mentoring, coaching, and resource lending.
