Both areas are accessed independently from each other and the School; additional venues can be made available on request. Our venues already have a distinct and separate programme of arts events and sport and leisure activities out of school hours; many patrons and visitors say that they cannot believe that they are in a school.

The Bromley Hall is currently used by the Bromley Symphony Orchestra www.bromleysymphony.org/ and the Borough’s outstanding music service, Bromley Youth Music Trust www.bymt.co.uk as their main performance venue.

History of Langley Park School for Boys – The School was founded in 1901 and occupied a site close to Beckenham Spa. It then moved to the Kentwood site in Penge (currently used by LBB Adult Education) and expanded to become Beckenham & Penge Grammar School for Boys. It remained there until 1969, when it became a comprehensive school for boys and moved to its current site in Hawksbrook Lane, off South Eden Park Road in Beckenham, Kent – SE London, UK. We were extremely fortunate to have received BSF funding to rebuild the School ready for occupation in January 2011, which includes a magnificent state-of-the-art 500-seater theatre, Bromley Hall, funded from the London Borough of Bromley council’s legacies. The new building was officially opened by the Earl of Wessex in February 2014.
