Your Sixth Form. Our Vision

We promise a contemporary and unique approach to post-sixteen education study based on our philosophy of a research focused education programme that takes you way beyond the traditional model of teaching to pass A Level examinations practised in most schools. As such, we proudly boast that your university education starts here. Much of our teaching is conducted at undergraduate level and the range of academic opportunities for both the Art and Humanities and Science is intended to offer you the option of involving yourself in genuine open ended academic research, usually realised in the Extended Project Qualification in Year 13, but also in a host of other ways.

"We acknowledge the Langton's pioneering work in involving school students in the excitement of fundamental research and agree completely that the Langton Star Centre could play an active important role in the MoEDAL experiment, drawing on its recognised and strong track record in this arena."

Professor Jim Pinfold, Spokesperson for the MoEDAL collaboration

Monopole and Exotics Detector at the Large Hadron Collider (MoEDAL) is the seventh major experiment undertaken by CERN.

Your university education starts here

Our timetabled History of Ideas programme is intended to introduce you to ideas and concepts that you will not find in other local schools and dovetails perfectly with the wider academic research that we conduct after school and in the holidays. On top of this you will receive expert tuition in high octane lessons throughout your time with us.

We value your independence and take every opportunity to involve you in the running of the School and give you the freedom and space you need to grow into a rounded and mature adult. Our sports teams are renowned and feared throughout the country and beyond and huge numbers of our students thrive on the opportunities afforded in Music and Drama. We even offer you a Gap Year project working at our twin school, Dr. Obote College in Northern Uganda.

We know that our commitment to taking you way beyond the narrow confines of A Level makes you a more attractive prospect to university admissions tutors as our record of placing students in the elite universities is rarely bettered in Kent. We will challenge your thinking and stimulate your intellect and, most importantly, aim to give you the best two years of your life so far.
