Why was The Langley Academy Primary established?

The Trustees of The Arbib Education Trust (formerly known as The Langley Academy Trust) had already established a very successful secondary school – The Langley Academy and were keen to open a primary free-school to develop a much needed, outstanding 3-19 education provision in Langley. Through The Langley Academy Primary and The Langley Heritage Primary this vision became a reality.

The aim of The Langley Academy Primary is to provide its pupils with an inspirational curriculum that promotes Curiosity, Exploration and Discovery. This fosters an innate sense of learning, deepens children’s knowledge and enables them to become critical thinkers, one of the many skills needed to succeed in an ever-changing 21st century world. Children are recognised as individuals, through our approach we develop pupils’ academic and social skills; building their sense of self-believe and developing high aspirations.

When did The Langley Academy Primary open?

The Langley Academy Primary opened in September 2015 with 90 Reception pupils. The school will increase its intake each year by admitting a further 90 Reception pupils, meaning that by September 2021 it will reach its full capacity of 630 pupils, plus nursery.

Main achievements so far?

From their first day of school, all pupils at The Langley Academy Primary receive a unique experience. This is built on day by day. Each year we welcome a new Reception intake and we watch our pupils progress through school.
