Academic Partners

Langley School’s growth mindset philosophy is all about providing students and staff with outstanding opportunities to develop and excel. Our academic links give a ‘real world’ context to much of what is covered in the classroom, and inspire students as they consider future steps on their learning pathway.

Arcadia Home Interiors – Creative Design Partners

Arcadia Home Interiors is a design and retail studio, based in Fakenham, delivering everything from interior design consultations through to bespoke onsite installation.

Many Langley pupils go on to pursue design based courses at university, having excelled in the practical nature of design, developing skills that are essential in the fast paced technological developments of the 21st Century. Arcadia provides industry relevant extension opportunities for pupils across the age range. Our Year 8 pupils have already gained inspiration for an interior design project.

Through this creative partnership we look forward to further developing links with Arcadia and their associated suppliers, including SieMatic and Gaggenau.
