What says..

A real breath of fresh air. Surprisingly little sense of overcrowding, and there’s even a whole school assembly once a term or thereabouts – though ‘if it were all boys, there would be accidents,’ says head. Good-sized and centre stage learning support unit, home to two key workers under direction of deputy head with SEN background, is widely appreciated as a whole school safety valve offering help for anyone under pressure. Friendship issues inevitably the biggest…

What the school says...

Welcome to Langley Park School for Girls. I am thrilled to lead this dynamic, successful school, which combines a focus on 21st century learning with a strong sense of tradition. We’re really proud of our academic achievement, with our results at GCSE putting us in the top 100 comprehensive schools in the country and, on the basis of our 2016 results, the top 10 in London. This is the result of a combination of highly skilled teaching and an environment that encourages motivation, self-confidence and risk taking. We know that these factors mean that girls are most successful in single gender schools.
Our strapline is ‘Unlocking potential through empowerment’. Our ethos is underpinned by the growth mindset: we believe that our abilities in all areas can be developed through dedication and hard work. In addition to the excellent learning relationships and empowering pastoral curriculum, the school's huge range of enrichment opportunities and out of hours learning enables LPGS students to become confident, creative individuals. We believe that the creative and expressive arts are an essential part of all of their education, and we take delight in showcasing our students’ talents through our concerts, drama and dance performances. LPGS has a special focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and students have a range of opportunities to develop through exciting projects in these areas. We want them to be well informed about global issues and to develop a sense of rights and responsibilities, enabling them to contribute to the wider community and ultimately to become achievers and leaders in our rapidly changing and frequently uncertain world.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2011, Dr Anne Hudson, MA BA PGCE PhD, (50s). Though local – lives in nearby Beckenham with husband Stuart, a retired teacher (no children) hence appeal of current job – this is her first professional move into suburbia. Was previously head of Central Foundation Girls’ School in Tower Hamlets, her fifth inner-city comprehensive, the other four co-ed and all universally on the up, with one (Dunraven School in Lambeth, where she was deputy head) teetering on cusp of outstanding inspection score.

Precise (always a pleasure to encounter ‘syllabi’ in briefing notes), energetic (a keen cyclist who misses ‘therapeutic’ 24-mile round trip commute to last school) and articulate (diction so crisp you could serve it with dips at a cocktail party), she’s notable for a jaw-dropping back story that’s more...
