OFSTED said of Langdon Park School in 2016 

"Pupils’ outcomes at GCSE   improved markedly last year and that trend continues. The proportion of   pupils gaining at least five GCSEs at grade A* to C, including English and   mathematics, was well above average and pupils’ progress is greatly improved".   

"The work of leaders to create a culture of ambition and high aspiration is driving sustained improvements in the   standard of education". 

"Teachers model leaders’ high expectations in their work with pupils. Not only is this supporting pupils’ positive   attitudes to learning but it has helped to generate clear, well-rehearsed and   respected routines that underpin more effective learning".
