Year 7 joining information – September 2021
We look forward to welcoming our new Year 7 students to Langley Grammar School.
Arrangements for the start of term
Please note the following updated information. Full details have been sent by email to parents on Monday 19 July 2021.
Year 7 students will now start school on Friday 3rd September. This will be a full school day and will be focused on ensuring students are familiar with the school.
Please continue to refer to the school website for any changes to previously published information.
Parents meeting and induction day
Owing to the continuing coronavirus restrictions, an online briefing and question and answer session was held on Tuesday 29 June instead of the previously advised onsite meeting. FAQs from this meeting, together with the answers, can be found at the end of this page. The presentation slides can be accessed below:
The planned in-school induction day for children on Tuesday 6 July will not be taking place by agreement across the Slough secondary schools. Parents and students will be emailed with induction information which will also be added to this page.
The handbook, with contributions from our current students, has been emailed to parents and can also be found at the end of this page. Students, please read this information carefully and encourage your parents to also have a look.
Please watch the video tours below to help familiarise yourself with the school site. The first video was produced for our online 'Open Evening' last Autumn.......
The next video has been produced by Mrs Close, Year 7 Phase Leader, as a guided tour of the site and buildings as they are now. This will give new students a really good idea of what to expect when they arrive in September. There is also a map at the end of the page which students may like to print and bring with them for the first few days.
Students have been sent an email with details of their tutor group and the name of their tutor. Welcome videos from the tutors are available below.

7H Mr Batsman
7K Mrs Clark & Mrs Mangat
7R Miss Rae & Mr. Bux

Some subjects have provided work for you to do over the summer holidays ready for when you join Year 7 in September. Please have a look at the information from the Computing and English departments. The English work on the story of The Happy Prince is at the end of this page.
