Our Sixth Form
Welcome and Ethos: The Langton Girls’ Grammar is a mixed Sixth Form. A long standing pillar of the community, we have a history of academic excellence and a tradition of sending our students to the best colleges, institutes and universities worldwide. Our school motto, "Meliora Sequamur" (let's aim for better things) underlines our 800 year-old tradition of commitment to excellence and our belief that we are lifted up and borne aloft by the understanding gained by those who have gone before us.
Values: As part of the ‘’Langton Family’’, we expect our Sixth Form students to develop a shared set of values and learning behaviours which we call the ‘’Langton Values’’; critical to employers, FE institutions and a young adult’s ability to cope post – 18 and be happy. It is our devotion to the ‘’Langton Values’’ which means that our students flourish here and in the future.
Well – being: Langton students benefit from the exceptional level of care that we provide. Our well-being team and our Pastoral Manager work with our teaching staff to provide day to day support, whilst ensuring that specialist support is there if needed. Our students take on many leadership and managerial responsibilities to make a valued contribution to the vitality and character of the community.
Curriculum: A Langton Curriculum means that students study 3 or 4 A Level subjects and take part in the Langton Extended Curriculum which includes an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), the Intellectual Vision and Endeavour (IVE) Programme, the Projects@SLGGS and our Careers Curriculum which has held the prestigious Investors in Careers quality award for many years.
Our bespoke curriculum includes the highly successful ‘’Top Flight’’ programme (Oxbridge, IVY League), the ‘’MDV’’ programme (Medics, Dentists and Vets) and the ‘’PPE’’ programme (Politics, Philosophy and Economics). There are also opportunities within the curriculum for amateur and elite sportsmen and women and for students to design their own personalised timetable to develop their individual interests.
The Langton Language Centre (LLC) is somewhere where students learn to teach English as a foreign language, learn languages such as Mandarin, Japanese, Polish and Arabic and attend talks on different aspects of the language and culture of countries like Cuba or explore their linguistic heritage.
A weekly Careers Talk@SLGGS delivered by students, lecturers and industry experts and the weekly meetings for those involved in clubs, societies, debating, journals, magazines and publications also form part of the informal curriculum.
