Langham Oaks School is a thriving special school providing 69 places for boys, aged 10-16 with "Outstanding" (Ofsted 2017) residential provision for 28 pupils. It is located in a small village in north-east Essex, six miles from Colchester. The school currently resides in a 19th century house with extensions for classrooms, but there are exciting plans in progress to move to a new and specially designed building in the grounds.

The School is a specialist provision for pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH). Langham Oaks is more than a school; it is a community based on exceptionally strong and trusting relationships between children and adults. Pupils are capable of learning and achieving, but have experienced many complex issues preventing them from engaging in learning and making progress. This is where the vital role of a Learning Support Assistant plays an integral part in the school by supporting pupils through times of challenging behaviour with high quality intervention and understanding. Staff from both the day and residential teams work proactively and collaboratively to develop and deliver the best bespoke package for each individual pupil.
