A message from the Headmaster

Mike Crossley – HeadmasterLangley Preparatory School at Taverham Hall is a modern, forward-thinking school with traditional values embedded firmly at its roots; a place where academic excellence flourishes alongside creativity and fun. We believe that how and where children learn is just as important as what they learn. Every child is different, so finding the learning techniques that are right for them is essential. This provides children with the tools they need to guide them through their academic life.
Boys and girls aged 2 to 13 years old are taught that academic accuracy is fundamental – as is showing kindness and consideration for others. Our 100 acres of school grounds, described as a ‘paradise for pupils’ by inspectors, allows for a huge range of learning opportunities. Outside lessons take place through our fully integrated Forest School programme and learning can be consolidated in our fabulous outdoor classroom – where practical and problem-solving skills are common place.

Our dedicated team works hard to create a supportive and nurturing environment for all children in our care, something which is enchanced by our own Mental Health First Aiders team who are there to assist the school community.

By the age of 13, children are ready to embrace the next stage of their education as empowered learners full of confidence and enthusiasm. Langley Preparatory School at Taverham Hall children enjoy an enviable academic record and invariably gain places in the public schools of their choice.

Onwards and upwards

For us, Langley Preparatory School at Taverham Hall is more than just a school. Since the 1920s  the Taverham Hall site has been a vibrant and safe environment for knowledge and curiosity to grow. A place where inquisitiveness and creativity is valued. Should your child require additional support, you can rest assured they will get all the help they need from our Accelerated Learning (Learning Support) team.
