Langley Grammar School is a co-educational grammar school with academy status, located in Langley, Berkshire, England.

Admissions[edit]

It currently has about 1013 pupils of whom 261 are in the Sixth Form. It is situated just north of the A4 next to Kedermister Park. Cycle route 61 passes north-south next to the west side of the school.

Langley Grammar School selects its incoming students on the basis of examined ability, at age 11 by NFER 11+ examination or for Sixth Form by performance at GCSE and interview. Mr John Constable is the current headteacher of the school. Around 70% of pupils come from outside of the LEA, with many from Hillingdon.

History[edit]

The school was founded in 1956 by Buckinghamshire County Council; Slough and Langley at that time being in Buckinghamshire. The founding Headmaster was Mr J. G. Day. Since 1 April 2011 the school has been an Academy Trust and a Charitable Company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (registered number 7536795)

In the early 1980s, there were plans to close the school to reduce Slough's grammar schools from 5 to 4. In the end, two single-sex grammar schools merged instead to form Upton Grammar School (now Upton Court Grammar School).

Facilities[edit]

Langley Grammar School has recently sold tracts of land at the end of the former school field to fund building and restoration works including, amongst others, a new teaching block of six classrooms, a sports hall, fitness suite, multi-purpose area, and astro-turf pitch. On September 11, 2006, the new Sports Hall was officially opened by the mayor of Slough. A new sixth form centre was completed in August 2007, which was opened on 28 September 2007 by Princess Anne.
