Sixth Form Admissions
Langley Grammar School offers a very wide range of AS and A level subjects for Sixth Form students. We also offer an extensive programme of complementary studies, which includes a choice of enrichment courses, a fortnightly lecture series, physical education, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, participation in musical and drama productions as well as opportunities for service to the school and community. It is our aim to give our students as broad an experience as possible during their two years in the Sixth Form.
Our students’ A level performance over the past three years is also excellent in terms of 'added value'. This view is supported through an annual independent report published by 'Alps', a national system of A level results analysis which is recognised by Ofsted. The Sixth Form has been consistently awarded an ALPS Grade 3 or higher over several years, recognising that our Sixth Form is in the top 25% in the UK for value added. The great majority of our students progress to Higher Education, with a significant proportion successfully gaining places on competitive courses at Russell Group universities.
There is a very effective tutor system in the Sixth Form and we take great interest in your progress, providing advice and encouragement when needed. Many students act as prefects and take on significant responsibilities, working with staff to manage activities in the rest of the school.
Students who decide to enter the Sixth Form at Langley Grammar School will be presented with the very best opportunities to achieve their academic and personal potential and will be given the fullest support in achieving their aims and aspirations. For further information please see our prospectus and other documentation below, including our response to frequently asked questions about the use of iPads in the Sixth Form.
