What the school says...

Our vision is that education is a whole life enterprise closely related to the well-being of the communities in which we live. The prime task of Langley Park School for Boys, is to provide all pupils with equal access to a broad relevant and dynamic curriculum which reflects local needs, giving parity to vocational studies, emphasising industry links and underpinned by the broader goals of responsibility, tolerance, self reliance and a lifelong interest in learning.

Langley Park School for Boys is a place where all students are encouraged to achieve the highest academic and social standards, feel secure and important and in which cultural diversity is prized. Where there are special needs these must be assiduously met. The school will continue to promote music, drama, art and sporting life as central elements of its success and appeal to pupils. The sustaining and strengthening of existing and new extra curricular activities and competitions are crucial to the school's future.
