Q3 Academy Langley
At Q3 Academy Langley we prioritise the importance of an excellent start to a student’s journey through their secondary education, working in a brand new building offering an innovative, refreshing and rigorous approach to transition.
Our key priority is to embed the learning habits that will stand students in good stead for their future academic success and adult life beyond the Academy. We aspire to the highest standards of behaviour with a high expectations culture.
An un-stinting focus on high quality teaching and learning underpinned by a curriculum that values each child and offers a personalised approach to learning ensures that all students make rapid progress and settle into secondary life quickly. What happens at Key Stage 3 plays a vital part in a student’s educational journey; we aim to ensure they get off to a flying start!
Our commitment to a broad and balanced curriculum is enhanced by the Wednesday and Thursday afternoon physical education and extra-curricular offer. In addition our innovative ‘Ethos Weeks’ allow students to broaden their horizons and develop additional skills through these experiences.
The development of our Multi Academy Trust has already shown to be beneficial in many areas not least the attracting and retaining of key staff members. Operating across more than one school can mean that opportunities for promotion, growth and developing of colleagues can be managed with the Q3 Academies Trust (QAT) rather than losing talent where room for promotion may be stifled. We have been able to book external speakers to come and deliver training to our teaching staff and the opportunity to network and bring staff together from across the QAT has been beneficial for all concerned.
Working as a family has also seen expertise shared from the Great Barr site – for example our attendance and welfare officer works across both Academies and has shown considerable impact since her role and scope widened.
