Welcome from the Principal
Progressio Cum Populo - Progress with the People
Welcome to the Langdon Academy website and an opportunity to learn about the remarkable developments that are taking place here for students and staff alike.
Langdon has just completed its first full year as an Academy, since becoming part of Brampton Manor Trust in 2014. In that short time the school has taken a giant leap forward, achieving the best results in its history and making exceptional progress in all other aspects. Together, Langdon and Brampton Manor are working to set a new standard for education and progress in Newham.
Langdon is an ‘All-Through School’ providing excellent learning opportunities for children aged 3 to 16 and we are fortunate to do so in a wonderful 42-acre site with impressive facilities. We are also proud to be a Specialist Sports College.
The school’s motto ‘Progressio Cum Populo’ (Progress with the People) dates back to the 1950s and still expresses powerfully and eloquently the priorities of our organisation. Progress is developed through working in partnership with our students and their families, creating the environment and opportunity for each child to feel safe, secure and able to thrive.
Our core values of respect, equality, honesty and community define our culture and ethos and ensure that every child feels cared for and valued and contributes to their school and society.
Our curriculum in each Key Stage is tailored to the needs of students, providing a balance of challenge and support to enable each child to achieve their potential.
We expect effort and determination from all students (and staff) and believe that if the effort is right the progress will be outstanding. This is emphasised often and strongly and forms the basis for our student praise and reward system.
We believe that success and discipline go hand in hand and underpin this by setting exceptionally high expectations in relation to attendance, punctuality, behaviour and effort. We also expect the support and partnership of parents in ensuring that students fully embrace the standards and values of the academy.
Our impressive progress is such that there has never been a better time to become part of the Langdon community. Please browse our website and Prospectus to see what’s on offer and don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to find out more.
