You have a package of staff training and support with a clear focus on developing and sharing first rate teaching and learning’ (OFSTED November 2017)

IMAGINE walking into school and seeing a dinosaur – or a plane - or a badger. The Langley Academy is not just another school; it is a new way of learning. As the UK’s first museum school, The Langley Academy has a museum within the building. Here you are encouraged to use your imagination to create new ways to ignite students’ desire to learn. We are ideally situated, only minutes from the M4 at Junction 5 and the M25, and with excellent rail links to Central London. If you chose to live here, renting is cheaper than in Central London, yet you are in town quickly. Windsor, Marlow or Henley are close and if you enjoy weekend travelling it takes about 15 min to Heathrow. We border Buckinghamshire, with no less than 100,000 acres which are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - including a substantial part of the magnificently wooded Chiltern Hills. Whether you are into the outdoors or want to be close to London, working here is ideal.
