School Description

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. A very low proportion of students are eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for specific groups, including looked after children, students known to be eligible for free school meals and children of service families. The school has extremely few looked after children and children of service families. No Year 7 students are eligible for catch-up funding. 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 does not use any alternative off-site education provision. 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. The school exceeds the government’s current floor standards, which sets the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.
