Welcome to the 1248 Society
Ken Moffat, Head of School and 1248 President
The aim of the 1248 Society, more than anything, is to allow the experience of being part of the Langton family to extend beyond the few years that you are actively connected to the school to become a life experience that you can contribute to, as well as take away from.
In saying that, there is an implicit understanding that The Langton is unusually special as a school, and I think that is something to which we would all subscribe.
I am delighted with the response from members at the re-invention of the alumni organisation. To all of you who joined up so readily, my thanks, and to those of you who have generously donated already, via cheques and standing orders, my great thanks.
Obviously, one serious aim of the 1248 Society is to provide lasting financial assistance to the School. As we have indicated to our parent body; the government gives us ‘an adequate amount of money to provide an adequate education’, but, as we’ve already said, the Langton isn’t an adequate school. It is, and we want it to remain, a world class institution and some of the developments of the past ten years have been quite breath-taking. In order for this to continue to happen we need private funds to sustain us and any and every penny our alumni and parents can give us will fund a further project or aspect of the School.
