Langley Academy, Slough by Foster + Partners

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] The AJ can reveal the first photographs of Foster + Partners £23 million Langley Academy in Slough

Although it has been open to students and staff for nearly a year, the 1,150 pupil science academy will only be officially ‘launched’ later today (12 November) by Olympic medal-winning rower Matthew Pinsent.

The three-storey building, which replaced the now-demolished Langleywood School, is understood to be the first in the UK to have its own museum. More than 500 items and artefacts, including the rowing boat used by the victorious British rowing crew in the 2000 Olympic Games, are displayed throughout the building.

As well as 38 classrooms, the academy also boasts 10 science labs housed in three yellow drums floating within the main atrium (pictured below). The school also has a block which is home to TV and recording studios, a theatre, rehearsal space, sports hall and lecture theatre.
