Well – being:
All Langton students benefit from the exceptional level of care that we provide. Our Sixth Form Pastoral Manager, tutor team and our well-being team work with our teaching staff to provide day-to-day support, whilst ensuring that specialist support is there if needed.
Our dedicated SEN Learning Base ensures that all students are supported to fulfill their potential, embodying our personalised approach to every student and the Assistant Head of Sixth Form offers individualised support for students to encourage students to make the jump from GCSE.
Our Sixth Form students themselves, whose maturity enables them to play a key role in supporting those in the lower school, act as form guardians, peer and subject mentors.
