Year 6 Open Days and Open Evening 2017

Monday 2nd October
Tuesday 3rd October
Wednesday 4th October
Thursday 5th October
Tuesday 17th October.
Parents must book a tour by phoning Sinead Scargill on 01227 463567.
Tours will take place at 9.30 am, 11.20 am and 2.30 pm on Monday 2nd, Tuesday 3rd and Thursday 5th October and at 9.30 am and 11.20 am only on Wednesday 4th October.
Places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE STRONGLY ADVISE YOU TO BOOK ONE OF THE OPEN DAY TOURS BEFORE THE KENT TEST RESULTS ARE KNOWN. If you leave it until after you have received your son’s results it is likely that all of the tour places on 17th October will have been taken and you will not be able to attend.
The school’s Open Evening will be on Wednesday 4th October, starting at 5.45 pm and ending at 8 pm. There is no need for you to book just come along and see what the Langton has to offer. There will be two opportunities for you to hear talks by key members of staff in the hall (6 pm or 7 pm), plus subject and pastoral staff will be available for you to speak to.
Please note: We are not able accommodate visits to the school outside of these published dates.

In-Year Casual Admissions
If you wish your child to be considered for admission into the Langton you will need to submit an In Year Casual Admission Application. You can download a form here.
Please note that the school is currently oversubscribed in all year groups.
An explanation of School Roll Numbers
The school has a published admission number of 120 which means that neither the school, nor the Local Authority, can offer any more than 120 places in any year group (four forms of 30 students). Only an appeal panel is permitted, by law, to instruct the school to take more students. However, the school acknowledges that it has the accommodation and staffing levels that mean that it can take four forms of 32 into each year – making a total of 128 boys. Historically, the appeal panel takes the school roll up to 128 in Year 7 each year and these 128 Year 7 boys go on to be 128 in Year 8 and so on.
It should be noted that if there are fewer than 128 students in the year group into which admission is being sought, then admission may be possible, subject to the student passing the school’s entrance tests in English, maths, science and either French, German or Spanish and demonstrating an appropriate academic ability. The school must be confident that such an admission would not prejudice the education of boys already in school.
It should be noted that: The school would expect the place to be taken up immediately
If the student in question does not do as well as hoped in the entrance tests we will not offer a place regardless of the numbers in the Year group. Parents would have the right to lodge an appeal against the decision not to admit. You can download an appeal form here. Under these circumstances the appeal panel may look to the parents to provide evidence that his test results did not accurately reflect his academic ability. However, the school would put a robust argument to the panel that the child did not have the required academic ability to enable him to successfully integrate into the school and keep pace with the lessons at the school.
It should be noted that:
In the past 12 years no appeal panel has ever instructed the school to make an offer of admission when the student in question achieved significantly low marks in the entrance tests.
The school does not maintain a waiting list for Years 8 – 13 and only between September and December for Year 7 boys. In Year Casual Admissions are dealt with on a first-come, first-served basis. Places will not be held open.
Entrance tests will only be arranged if there are fewer than 128 students in the year group.
Admission into Year 9 in June of each year
The school is able to take additional boys into Year 9 during the final term in each academic year (which starts in June). Class sizes are reduced at this stage as Langton students split into their option groups for GCSE subjects and become Year 9+.
In many ways this is the best time for a Year 9 boy to join the school; he would be amongst other boys in the same situation and the Langton’s own students would also be moving into classes with boys they have not previously been to lessons with.
Boys seeking admission into Year 9+ would be required to sit the entrance tests and the same procedures described above with regards to the entrance test results would apply.
Boys wishing to join us for Year 9+ must attend a testing day which will take place on the morning of SATURDAY 18TH MARCH 2017. Please download, complete and return the APPLICATION FORM to Susan Begg. firstname.lastname@example.org
Rugby Trials will be taking place on the same day in the afternoon. If you wish your son to be included in the trials please indicate this on the Application Form.
NB Boys attending the testing day must be at the school by 9.15 am. The tests will start promptly at 9.30 am. Further details will be sent to anyone submitting the application form.
Admission into Year 10
The school is very reluctant to take students into Year 10. Langton students start their GCSE syllabuses in Year 9+ and boys joining after that time would be significantly disadvantaged and required to spend a lot of time on private study during evenings, weekends and holidays to get up to speed.
Admission into Year 11
The school does not admit students into Year 11 except in extreme circumstances.
