II.1.4) Short description: Langley School is, by any measure, a wonderful place to develop and learn, with very dedicated, talented staff providing a rich, highly successful diet of personal as well as academic development opportunities for all students. Affection and respect for children are evident in all who work here.
The school’s fundamental principles focus on supporting, challenging and inspiring the whole Langley community to be the best we can be. But these are not simply words on paper. Students, staff, parents and governors genuinely give all they can to bring those principles to life every day. Langley is not an ‘exam factory’. Examinations are critically important, of course and students achieve superbly well in them, but the School truly believe in developing young people to deal effectively with the tests of their lifetime, not merely to endure a lifetime of tests.

As a school that is continually seeking ways to improve and develop the ethos and environment for students and staff, to give them the facilities they deserve and need to meet the challenges of the 21st Century, any consideration regarding inward capital investment as part of the Supplier’s tender submission would be welcomed. The Client would wish for the Supplier to look at making this investment within the catering area, with attention being given to a high street style, retail focussed offer which attracts current non users of the refectory and compliments the new facilities.
