The private boarding school Langley School (originally from Langley School) was originally called the Norwich High School for Boys (founded in 1911) and was based in Norwich, but since 1946, it has been operating on campus in the small, cozy town of Langley (Durham county). As can be seen from the first name, at first only young men were accepted for studies - but today the institution has completely switched to a joint training scheme, taking British and foreign schoolchildren from 10 to 18 years. The institution also includes a preparatory school (with a kindergarten) - Thorpe House Langley Preparatory, intended for pupils of 2-10 years old and located 10 kilometers from the main territory (Norwich).

The ratio of teachers to students is 1: 8, which gives teachers the opportunity to give each maximum of personal attention. A small number of students (10-12% of whom are foreigners) also ensures close monitoring of the successes and achievements of each pupil.

According to the statistics of anonymous surveys, 86% of students feel their constant academic progress, 91% are satisfied with all activities without exception, and more than 86% are constantly engaged in sports and are part of school teams and national teams. The academic results of the students at Langley School clearly demonstrate the high level of preparation:

  • GCSE: 86% successfully passed the final exams, with 40% earning the highest A * -A scores
  • A-level: 80% of final tests were successfully passed, and 26% managed to earn the highest marks from A * to A.

Foreign students here can attend additional language courses EAL (English as a second language): individual lessons and classes in mini-groups allow you to quickly and effectively improve all key knowledge and skills to productively engage with the main class. Senior high school students and high school students have the opportunity, if desired, to prepare for the exams (Cambridge, IELTS, "English as a foreign language").

In general, high school students are provided with broader and fuller opportunities, in particular, in vocational guidance and career programs. Students of Sixth Form live in a separate town-residence, thus becoming accustomed to the independence, self-sufficiency, which awaits them during their studies at the university. High school students work as curators of junior classes, take patronage over young students, judge sports matches, organize recreational and entertainment events. The school administration for pupils of Sixth Form organizes useful professional consultations, meetings with admission commissions and representatives of universities, visits and excursions to the largest campuses, additional academic studies.
