Future Developments




Longacre School has been listed in the Sunday Times list of the Top 100 Independent Preparatory Schools in England.

Future Developments

Longacre is consistently investing to improve and develop our facilities across the school to further benefit our pupils. We have now completed the first two phases of an ambitious 20 year building programme, detailed below:

Phase 1:

Phase 1 was completed in January 2015 and included the construction of a multi-purpose Astro sports pitch encompassing a hockey pitch and two netball/tennis courts.


Phase 2:

Phase 2 was completed in May 2015 and included the construction of a large two storey Hall encompassing:

Upper Floor: Creative Arts Studio, Multi Purpose Practice Rooms

Ground Floor: A Modern Performance Space and a Sports Centre

Hall-16 cropped

Longacre School 126

Longacre School 130


Phase 3:

A modern Dining Room and Kitchen.

Work has now begun on Phase 3 which includes a new modern dining room and kitchen facilities. Construction  of the new kitchen  is currently underway and is due to be completed in July 2017.  Following completion of the new kitchen facilities it is anticipated that work will then commence on the new dining room with a proposed completion date of February 2018.

The plans for the new kitchen and dining room can be viewed below.

Kitchen and DiningRoom Plans

The work will deliver:

• A spacious Dining area in the heart of the school, eventually linked to the new classroom block.

• Increased seating for both staff and pupils; bespoke to our needs.

• Kitchen specifically designed to cater for young children and whole school.

• An area designed to enable social dining where children can enjoy their meals.

• Suitable storage for hanging coats, storing shoes and washing hands.



Future developments planned are as follows:

Phase 4:

An additional classroom block incorporating further specialist teaching rooms.

The work will deliver:

• A new pupil entrance into the Upper School.

• Wider corridors and breakout area for the older pupils.

• Replicated design of the current Upper School, including natural light and air flow.

• Longer classrooms to allow for more practical teaching styles.



  • My time at Longacre started in Form III and I made friends with everyone very quickly! Everyone from the staff to the pupils were welcoming.
  • I first joined Longacre in Form III. At first I was really nervous as I had no idea what it was going to be like. I still remember going on a tour around the school with Mrs Bolton.
  • From when I started, back in Nursery, to the moment I will leave in just a week’s time (gosh the time really has gone quickly!), I have really enjoyed Longacre…
