Here is the Headteacher’s open evening presentation:
Individual and Generic timetables for Year 11 Mock exams in December were distributed to students October (absentees were posted home). They follow the same format as the Year 10 exams your son/daughter took part in in March this year – i.e. by enlarge exams run to normal lesson. There are copies of the generic timetable and other relevant documents on the school website – Students tab → Examinations →Exam Timetable and Exam Information.
There will be a briefing next term and a package will be sent home with students with another copy of the Timetables, Student Instructions and JCQ Exam Regulations. If in the meantime you or your son/daughter have any queries or questions with regard to their timetable, please contact me either via email (email@example.com or Tel: 01491 683368 or ask your son/daughter to come and see me in the Exams Office.
This was the first event in the popular Inter-Tutor competition.

Following up from the first Langstock Event held on Friday 19th September 2014.
Firstly I would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of the PTA who participated in facilitating this event which from the feedback so far has been extremely encouraging. A special thanks (as always) to the Committee members and non committee members (Andy Goss/Andy Bennett/ Jon Sedwell) who gave up so much of their time in planning meetings prior to the big day and undertaking all the various tasks that needed to be pulled together to make the whole event work. Mary Taylor-Lane for her sterling front office assistance in selling advance tickets and organising the printing of the posters and the publicity. Jan Hoskins for organising the boards for the posters through her work and for getting them put up in the surrounding areas!
The School Staff. There really was so much help from the Teaching Staff as well some assisting where they could to set up the Gazebo’s/ tables/ BBQ etc and others attending the night’s activities. Thank you so much. Milan was his patient self as always, thank you to you and your staff for your assistance in preparing/closing down the event. Mr Holroyd as well for his joint input into the evening.
On Thursday 11th of September our Product Design group at Langtree school went to the Pitt Rivers museum in Oxford. The trip was planned in order to give us inspiration for our project that we will be working on until Christmas. We were also given the incredible opportunity to exhibit our work in the museum with our very own display cabinet.
Our task is to design and make an amulet out of Copper for our GCSE course in Product Design; we have up until Christmas to design and create our projects.
We arrived in the morning, and were given a short amount of time to quickly explore the artefacts. Soon after the brief scan of the museum we were given a more, in depth, guide by our tour guide Mia; this was a very interesting experience as we were taught about the history/meaning of the amulets and charms that we were shown. We were even given the opportunity to hold and study some different amulets and the chance to hold ancient arrow heads that dated back to thousands of years ago. Once the tour was over we had free roam of the museum and set of to gather our own ideas and inspiration. We did this by sketching and photographing images of the artefacts that appealed to us.
Unlike the natural history museum in front of it, Pitt Rivers was dark and mysterious in which it catalogued human artefacts from across the world. They started off with 200,000 items but they have now accumulated over 500,000 artefacts that have been donated by: travellers, archaeologists, scholars and missionaries.
We had an interesting and educational time at the museum and are very grateful for this opportunity that was handed to us.
