A Norfolk independent school has unveiled a new logo based on a historic city gate that once stood in Norwich.

After a recent merger Langley School has two separate historic 100-acre sites, making it one of a kind in Norfolk. 

Langley pre-prep and prep school at Taverham Hall, and the senior school and sixth form in Loddon, are both now under its new branding.

The new Langley logo itself features St Giles Gate, which once stood facing Earlham Road until it was demolished in the 18th century. It is a nod to the school’s history and its Norwich roots having been located in St Giles in the early 20th century.

Headmaster Jon Perriss said: “We are one school, with shared values and a community spirit that defies the distance between our sites.

“In fact, having two campuses is one of our strengths, with the space for a forest school, outdoor classrooms and indoor swimming pool at the prep school; while at the senior school we have full time and flexi boarding, the Langley Football Academy directed by Grant Holt, and a high-performing sixth form.”
