As part of the Slough borough, Langley benefits from Slough as an important commercial centre, with large industrial and residential areas. Hundreds of major companies are based in Slough and the Slough Trading Estate, such as the UK Headquarters of Mars, O2, BlackBerry, McAfee and Polycom. The proximity to London Heathrow and the motorway connections are very attractive to large national and international companies.
The transport links also allow you a lot of scope when consider employment. People based in Langley also commute to work in nearby towns and cities such as Windsor, Reading, London and Bracknell. Slough’s integration into the heart of the UK transport and communications network, located between the M4, M40 and the M25 gives easy access to both London, the South East, the Midlands, the West Country and more.
And once the work day is done, it’s time to play! There are 89 parks and opens spaces, 75 play areas and 5 sports and leisure centres within the Slough area, as well as a thriving town centre. The Council is committed to regenerating the area, changing the way that the centre of Slough looks and works. As one of the most ethnically diverse local authority areas, there are lots of opportunities to mix with all sorts of people and cultures in an exciting and vibrant way.
Children in Langley and Slough are also working hard. Slough secondary schools consistently perform strongly and are in the list of top 10 best performers in the country at GCSE level. In 2014, for example, Slough’s GCSE results moved up to seventh place in the country: 72.4% (1,193) of pupils left school with a minimum of 5 A*-C grades (with English and maths) compared to 60.8% nationally.
The future looks great too. As the Council reports, Slough’s total GVA is expected to increase by 65% by 2030 (to £6,500 million) outstripping the national projection of 57%. The number of enterprises in the area continues to grow, including a healthy number of start-up businesses.
