About Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys

The school is larger than the average-sized secondary school. It often refers to itself as ‘The Langton’. The school specialises in science and mathematics and promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education vigorously. It has working links with major organisations such as the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and has a purpose-built facility for scientific research. The sixth form is mixed, with about twice as many boys as girls. It has grown considerably in recent years and now has close to 500 students. It is the largest school sixth form in Kent. About one in five students come from minority ethnic backgrounds, the largest group being of Eastern European heritage. A below average proportion of students speak English as an additional language, of whom less than half are at an early stage of learning English. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported through school action is well below the national average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is low. The school provides for students on the autistic spectrum disorder. They are cared for within a faculty of support and guidance, no longer in a separate unit. They are rarely taught in the faculty but use it as a base to discuss their learning and personal needs. The school works collaboratively with Canterbury Academy to support the academy’s curriculum and teaching of the most able students and so that it can learn from the academy’s teachers’ expertise.
