About Langtree School

Langtree School is one of the smallest secondary schools in Oxfordshire, with a current roll of 600 fantastic students. However, our small size is our greatest strength as we are a community in which students are known and valued as individuals and in which they can thrive with the close support of a dedicated team of subject specialist teachers. Many parents choose Langtree for this reason, and we remain heavily oversubscribed for places.
