The staff, governing body and pupils of Langdon Academy would welcome you applying for a place at our school.  To do this you must follow the correct process for your child’s age as detailed below.

 We are an academy which means we are our own admission authority but have adopted the London Borough of Newham’s admission arrangements and processes to ensure continuity across the borough.

 All applications for this school must be made through London Borough of Newham’s Pupil Services, not this school.

 Fair Access

The law requires that each local authority must have a Fair Access Protocol (FAP), agreed with the majority of schools in its area to ensure that for In Year admissions unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable, are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible.  In agreeing a protocol, the local authority must ensure that no school - including those with available places - is asked to take a disproportionate number of children who have been excluded from other schools, or who have challenging behaviour.  Langdon Academy has signed up to the LB Newham’s Fair Access Protocol.

LBN Fair Access Protocol


  • If a family arrives in Newham during the school year 2020/2021 and their child needs a school place they must complete an In Year form naming their preferred schools.
  • School places are usually offered within 10 days. 
  • The place offered may not be at the school the family prefers as that school may not have a suitable place available.

In Year Admissions from 1 September 2020 to 16 July 2021 (Year Groups: 7 to 11)

Before submitting a secondary school application we strongly recommend all families read the autumn 2020 edition of the local authorities ‘Starting Secondary School’ guide and find out information about the school you are interested in.
