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.
Langdon Park is committed to the safeguarding and welfare of children. This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. A DBS enhanced disclosure that is satisfactory to us will be a condition of appointment.
