Taverham Hall and Langley Prep announce merger

We are pleased to announce the planned merger of Taverham Hall Preparatory School and Langley Prep School to become the number one preparatory school in the region.


Langley Prep and Taverham Hall, two Norfolk based independent preparatory schools have agreed, subject to

confirmation from the relevant regulatory bodies, to join forces. The merger of the two leading schools will

provide a platform to accelerate the goal of becoming not only the number one preparatory school in the

region but also to be recognised within the top tier of independent education in the UK.


The current Langley Prep School and Taverham Hall School will combine to become Langley Preparatory School

at Taverham Hall effective from September 2016. The new school will be located at Taverham Hall, a stunning

100 acre parkland estate near Norwich.


Both schools share the same objective of delivering academic excellence and believe in developing and creating

a curriculum around the individual’s needs. The educational experience will be wide-ranging, stretching all

children to the best of their respective abilities in academic, artistic, sporting, cultural and social activities. This

is in addition to the continuation and focus of delivering the best possible level of pastoral care for each pupil.

The two schools have a passion for sport and the outstanding facilities at Taverham Hall will provide the

platform to advance their sporting achievements to the next level.


With the talented and dedicated teaching staff, pupils will be encouraged to realise their potential both inside

and outside of the classroom and in all aspects of school life.


The Governors and Trustees are committed over the coming months to provide a smooth transition for all

pupils, staff and parents. The pupils and staff are looking forward to starting a new school year and a new

chapter as Langley Preparatory School at Taverham Hall.


“We are very excited by the prospect of the merger, as are the trustees, staff and of course the pupils. It affords

both schools wonderful opportunities in all areas of school life, with academia, sport, music and drama all set to

benefit greatly from shared expertise and increased investment in facilities. There is a great deal to look forward

to in September and a real sense of anticipation” Dominic Findlay, CEO Langley Schools and Mike Crossley

Headmaster, Taverham Hall School.


Langley School is a co-educational day and boarding school, which believes in developing student’s potential

both in and out of the classroom. We are passionate about sport and serious about education.
