The Langley Academy is a unique academy that serves the young people of Langley, Slough and further afield. Housed in an iconic building, designed by Foster and Partners, it specialises in Science and incorporates a Museum Learning focus. Museum Learning means how we use real things, real stories and real people to inspire teaching and learning. We call our model Curiosity, Exploration, Discovery.
The Langley Academy was inspired by the New York Museum School in Brooklyn, but with adaptations to suit our location and curriculum. We have recently become The Langley Academy Trust. Parlaunt Park Primary school has joined the organisation and The Langley Academy Primary opened its doors to Reception pupils in September 2015. Our Museum Learning Advisory Group consists of representatives from the following museums: The Museum of English Rural Life, the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, the River & Rowing Museum and the V&A Museum.
