Langley has a rich tradition of sending outstanding students to study Geography at some of the nation’s top universities – recent Icenians Sophie and Tim are just such examples. Led by Ms Lambert (ably assisted by the Headmaster and Mrs Oldfield), the Geography department is where pupils and students study the world today and why it looks, feels and arrived at this point. It captures the imagination and looks at people, places and problems that affect us all.
James J (Beauchamp, Upper Sixth) has been offered a place to study at UEA, in their excellent department. James has always enjoyed the study of Geography and has been an excellent Prefect, student and delegate in Model Arctic Council events. A tour guide of such prowess, a parent once exclaimed “I hope my son turns out just like him.” James has also been engaged in all types of entrepreneurial pursuits while at Langley. He has sold Hoodies for the Teenage Cancer Trust and Young Enterprise; run his own Lawnmower repair business, and also been engaged in racing and repairing classic cars on the European circuit.
Toby H (Mancroft, Upper Sixth) will be heading off to Swansea University to study Geography with a Year Abroad. He has been a model student, engaging in a wide range of activities including Debating, Model Diplomacy and CCF. His time in the D&T department has also been fruitful and Toby is hoping to receive the highest grades in this sphere. Toby has been a reliable, calming and kind part of the school community and while we will miss both Toby and James, we wish them well and hope they will return to tell us of their successes, exploits and glorious adventures.
