Our sites

Overview

We are all on a journey and here at Langley we have four strands to our school, which make up the four stages of the school journey: Pre-Prep, Prep, Senior School, and Sixth Form.

We are extremely fortunate to occupy two beautiful green campuses in Norfolk. Taverham Park, complete with breath taking neo-Jacobean Hall, is home to our Pre-Prep and Prep School; this is where the love of learning begins.

At Langley Park you will find our Senior School and Sixth Form within the Grade 1 listed grounds, originally designed by 18th century landscape gardener Capability Brown.

Both a matter of miles from Norwich, our two respective sites each have more than 100 acres of green open space, fantastic woodland areas and facilities to boot. The campuses boast purpose-built classrooms, design and technology centres, computing suites, state-of-the-art sports halls and extensive grounds that include tennis and netball courts, cricket pitches and nets, rugby pitches and athletics fields.

The Prep School’s facilities include an indoor swimming pool, purpose-built timber-framed outdoor ‘woodland classroom’ and pupil-built outdoor pizza oven. There is also private access to the River Wensum, plus access to an AstroTurf just outside the school grounds on Beech Avenue.

The Senior School has its own AstroTurf, as well as Football pitches that are home to the Langley Football Academy. Langley Senior School has a Medical Centre run by two qualified nurses (featuring weekly clinic with a local GP), plus a Chartered Physiotherapist whose offering includes functional rehab, manual therapies and exercise programmes and development.
