Langley School has a small but busy finance department and this role will be an integral part of the existing finance team.  This post offers an exciting opportunity for someone with excellent organisational skills and an eye for detail, who is able to work on their own initiative but also as part of a team.

Our school’s fundamental principles focus on supporting, challenging and inspiring the whole Langley community ‘to be the best that we can be’.  But these are not simply words on paper.  Students, staff and governors genuinely give all they can to bring those principles to life every day.  

What Matters to Us at Langley School

How we work together:
•             We share a clear sense of purpose, with students at the centre of all that we do and strive for
•             We are committed to investing in positive relationships to enhance all that we do, respecting and valuing differences
•             We make decisions with transparency and fairness, finding a route through the difficult rather than the easy
•             We take a solutions-focussed approach, concentrating on what we can do
•             We have a willingness to collaborate openly and honestly with each other and as part of wider networks, adopting and adapting good practice to fit the Langley context
•             We are a compassionate community with a shared set of values and a love for our very special school


Our approach with our young people:
•             We encourage everyone to embody our school motto; ‘to be the best we can be’ in all that we do
•             We see everyone’s potential as limitless
•             We share the fundamental belief that a child’s past does not determine their future. Our mistakes do not define us
•             We see learning as an exciting gateway to opportunity
•             We value every individual for their skills, talent and identity, ensuring everyone in our community is enabled to thrive
•             We never give up and we are committed to finding the right path for everyone
•             We want our students to leave us as successful, good people, with a healthy sense of well-being and self-confidence and to be proud of themselves and our school
