Working for the Academy:  Leigh Academies Trust were chosen by the Regional Schools Commissioner as the successful sponsor to operate the brand new Langley Park Primary Academy. The new Academy opened in brand new facilities in September 2016 and was built under ‘Basic Need’ to address rising pupil numbers across the area. The Academy has two forms of entry and comprises of a nursery, specialist centre for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders and community use facilities.

The Academy is based in a new development of housing in South East Maidstone.  Importantly, the new Academy is just a very short drive from three primary academies operated by LAT: Molehill, Oaks and Tree Tops. Langley Park joined LAT’s group of primary academies in South Maidstone under the leadership of Debbie Biggenden as Executive Principal and Libby Fidock as Principal. All four schools are part of LAT’s developing Central Kent Cluster.

Being part of the Leigh Academies Trust:  Being part of a successful multi-academy trust allows the academy to share best practice and collaborate with colleagues from a number of other schools in the local area.  As part of the 'cluster' structure all of our academies are grouped together in key geographical area to enable them to be able to support each other and share resources.  It also offers staff better access to career opportunities as the Trust is committed to developing and promoting from within wherever possible.  We also want the Trust to be an organisation where people can enjoy teaching and become the type of teacher they aspire to be.  For more information on working for the Trust please visit our careers pages.
