Senior School co-curricular

Read about the vast and varied opportunities on offer outside the classroom at Langley School. Activities and CCF enrich everyday life at Langley, constantly presenting new challenges, while Debating and MUN are additional co-curricular options to push pupils even further. Sport is one of our strengths here at the Senior School and the Langley Football Academy is highly renowned in its own right. Discover more here.

From Monday to Thursday, the final lesson of the day is an Activities session. We believe that an all-round education comes from a blend of academia and wider opportunity so, each term, pupils chose from more than 80 options, from Duke of Edinburgh to science specialisms, to fantasy share trading. Pupils can try new things, develop passions and broaden their horizons.

The Combined Cadet Force is a phenomenal organisation for training, experience and leadership. Run by ex-service personnel and teachers, Langley’s CCF is a prime example of service to the community. Cadets develop adaptability, resilience and confidence through courses such as Cadet Leadership, Navigation, First Aid and Survival Training. As all Year 9 pupils take part in CCF, everyone gets to experience this impressive offering.

Debating has given me the opportunity to improve my public speaking and also the ability to articulate my thoughts and ideas.’ Students will tell you how much they get from debating, particularly during ‘Pizza and polemic’ events, in which we invite a number of schools to debate topics such as compulsory voting and vaccinations. The pizza goes down very well too.

MUN events recreate real-life diplomatic summits to discuss, debate and negotiate Bills, Acts and global issues. At the start of 2020, twelve Langley students travelled to Wycombe Abbey for a three-day MUN conference, developing leadership and cultural empathy. We ranked 1st and 4th for the best interviews in the Security Council.

We focus on participation, development and excellence, encouraging a life-long engagement with sport. In our 110-acre grounds, we have rugby and football pitches, hardstanding netball courts, floodlit AstroTurf, sports hall and fully equipped gym.

Our Head of Cricket has played professionally; our Rugby coaches work with the Leicester Tigers; our hockey coaches have England Hockey and national league experience; our Head of Tennis works year-round and has seen pupils earn tennis scholarships at top American universities. We’ve forged a number of sporting partnerships, working with top-level professionals, through which pupils have secured playing contracts with the likes of Leicester Tigers.

With an inhouse Strength & Conditioning team, pupils get lifestyle advice, nutritional management and performance analysis using coded footage. While Physiotherapist Adrian Sweeney, with elite team experience, works on fast recovery and the prevention of recurring injuries, communicating with any outside agencies during treatment plans.
