our sixth form
The aim of the Sixth Form at LPGS is to provide a high quality Post-16 education which will enable you to reach the best possible standards of achievement in both academic and personal development.
High expectations, strong teaching and excellent relationships are key features of our Sixth Form. We wish all those entering the Sixth Form to make an informed, sensible decision about their next step.
Our Co-Educational Sixth Form is vibrant, diverse, successful and growing. Nearly three quarters of students from Year 11 choose to stay on because they have discovered that our supportive staff and friendly atmosphere, combined with challenging expectations and high standards, will guarantee future success.
We also welcome many students from other schools who will tell you in their own words, they are convinced they have made the best choice.
MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD PREFECTS 2023-24
"Having attended LPGS since year 7, I have witnessed the incredible support that is provided here, right from the start of a student’s learning journey, all the way until the end.
Opportunities offered to students boost their academic profiles alongside developing each individual’s character. For example, subject-specific sessions are provided after school for revision. As a chemistry student, I have often attended the chemistry clinic and can confirm it to have been incredibly useful with bridging gaps in my knowledge. The societies and extra-curricular activities available range from sport to music to languages to arts - these enrich the school experience by creating a sense of community between the groups of people you will find to have similar interests to you. Culture Day and European Languages Day are just a couple more examples of how at Langley we value and celebrate our diversity, embrace our identities, and ultimately grow to become the best version of ourselves.
In addition to encouraging students to delve into their interests outside of pure academics, Langley aids you in building confidence and acquiring soft skills (qualities such as, leadership or communication). You can become a prefect, part of student council, start your own society or help organising a fundraiser- everyone has the chance to get involved. Moreover, the skills you will inevitably take away, will be applicable to whatever career you decide to pursue.
As my final point, I’d like to touch on the support provided when students are preparing for their next steps, after sixth form. At Langley we have career advisors who help massively guiding students in researching universities, apprenticeships and gaining invaluable work experience.
The teachers and students you will meet here enable a conscientious yet encouraging work environment- they want you to win. You decide what reality you want for yourself in the future and Langley supports you in achieving those goals."
"Hello, my name is Veer and I am one of the head prefects here at Langley Park School for Girls. I came to this school with no one from my secondary school, excited for the new challenges that sixth form and this school in particular would bring.
I was able to easily settle down in all of my classes due to the friendliness of all the peers and pastoral support that I was given. Becoming a prefect in Year 12 was a new experience for me as I had to write a formal letter of application and undertake an interview with the previous head prefects and members of staff. This provided me with valuable skills that will be useful in the real world when I am older and trying to apply for jobs. Throughout the school year there are many opportunities for students to excel outside the classroom. This includes a week of work experience where students are able to go out and gain understanding of the working world. A personal favourite of mine was culture day where the whole school comes together to celebrate everyone’s different backgrounds. This included coming into school in cultural clothing as well as a talent show after school with music and dancing. I feel like this is important as school is not just about the sheet of paper you receive after two years of hard work but about becoming a better, more well rounded person after this time."
Choosing Langley Girls for A levels for our daughter has been the best decision we could have made.
