The history of our school
Langley Mill Academy, previously know as "Langley Mill Junior School", was built in 1971. The junior pupils transferred from the previous site on Sedgwick Street which is now Langley Mill C of E Infant and Nursery School.
The school has a current capacity of 360 places, including an 8 place Enhanced Resource Facility for Deaf and Hearing Impaired Pupils. Currently we have 290 children on roll including the Enhanced Resource as part of our provision.
The school backs on to the playing field of Aldercar High School where many of our pupils transfer to at age 11.
Our site has a large field with two football pitches, several garden areas, a good sized playground, trim trail, tyre park, the ‘’volcano’’ and Karl's Garden which was built in memory of one of our former pupils.
Some of our former pupils have returned to work at the school which has a real community atmosphere.
On 1st February 2018 the school converted to an Academy and joined with Djanogly Learning Trust. In October 2019 a new build, called the Long Lea building, was opened which houses three new classrooms and facilities for our expanding school.
During the academic year of 2021-2022 we will be celebrating our 50th birthday!
