About

We have spent years perfecting a genuine research based philosophy to education which we think is unique in the country and believe really equips our students to succeed at university and beyond.

We believe in a learning model whereby teachers and students engage in authentic, open ended academic research in the sciences and humanities searching for answers to questions that, currently, none of them know. By removing the traditional parameters to learning we are constantly astounded by what our students are capable of achieving, way beyond the standard curriculum.

Our way of measuring the success of our ethos is through the very high numbers of students who manage to secure places at Cambridge, Oxford and Russell Group universities. As well as by watching the remarkably confident, self-assured and impressive young men and women our students turn out to be.

Our Ethos

Our mission is to lead a community of learners who enjoy an ability to think creatively, critically and innovatively; who possess a strong sense of responsibility for the School, for the community and for the environment; and who have the will to use these skills, not only for the benefit of themselves, but also for the good of the wider world.

We are extremely experienced in producing high achieving and well rounded individuals ready to take on roles as the leaders of their generation. We are also a formidable science School and have a science department that is leading the country in both its teaching and academic research. But, whatever your talent, from sport to theatre, art to economics, we have something to interest you. Above all things we value most – creativity, innovation and altruism.

“We aim to give all our students a positive and powerful experience they will remember and be proud of for the rest of our lives. To be part of the Langton community is to be part of something that is caring and empowering and lasts forever. We know that because our students tell us so. And we rather like that.”

Ken Moffat, Head of School
