The school is part of the Brampton Manor Trust, a multi-academy trust which also runs Brampton Manor Academy. Langdon Acadmey (previously Langdon School) joined the trust in 2014.
The school was originally three separate institutions, built in 1953. In 1972, these schools - Burges Manor, Thomas Lethaby and East Ham Grammar School - were combined to form Langdon School, a mixed comprehensive that would later become Langdon Academy.

Values and vision
Langdon Academy’s motto is “progresso cum populo”, meaning “progress with the people”. It’s aim is to ensure the maximum possible progress for each pupil across all aspects of their development.
The school lists its core values as: respect, equality, honesty and community. These values, it says, defines Langdon Academy’s culture, and ensures that every student feels valued, cared for, and able to contribute to both their school and their society.
Because it is an all-through school, Langdon Academy believes it can ofer pupils maximum continuity and progression during their educational development. The school has Specialist Sports College status.
“Senior leaders have a clear and ambitious vision for the school which is beginning to be realised. They have put in place a new, much more secure, leadership and staffing structure which is beginning to bring noticeable improvements across the school. Staff feel well supported and are keen to be successful. Morale is high.”
