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.
