Teaching & Learning
"Pupils and sixth formers....are supported to become highly effective, independent learners. Typically, they take great pride in their work and engage enthusiastically in lessons, demonstrating a real thirst for learning."
Ofsted, November 2021
Langley Grammar School is a friendly and harmonious community where students are free to focus on their learning and are supported to achieve excellent examination results.
We have a very dedicated and well-qualified body of teaching staff who are innovative, enthusiastic and committed to delivering high-quality teaching. Our teachers work hard to ensure that each student makes excellent progress and achieves well in examinations. We also ensure that the curriculum enables students to develop the wider skills needed for higher education and the 21st century workplace.
Our vision for teaching is encapsulated in our ‘Excellence in Teaching’ model.
We believe effective teaching is underpinned by strong relationships founded on high expectations and mutual respect.
In lessons teachers use carefully chosen strategies to assess, inform, engage and stretch students which enable them to make excellent progress over time.
Langley Grammar School has also recently achieved accreditation for transforming practice under SSAT's Framework for Exceptional Education.
The Framework for Exceptional Education is a self-review and planning tool incorporating SSAT's 30 years of experience in school improvement. Co-developed with a group of high-performing schools and reviewed by leading academics, the framework supports schools in quality-assuring their work and sharing effective practice.
To achieve accreditation as transforming in practice, Langley Grammar School was reviewed by another high-performing school and an independent moderator from SSAT.
SSAT's Chief Executive, Sue Williamson commented "for a school to be accredited for transforming practice is a real credit to their team and the quality of the work that they are doing."
