Form III kicked off this half term with their annual trip to Sayers Croft this week.

Prep School Facilities

All of our children are fortunate to have access to a wealth of modern, specialist facilities which enhance the teaching and learning at Longacre. Children from the age of 2½ move to the specialist rooms for Music and ICT. Pupils in Form II upwards move to the Art Studio with the specialist staff.

Specialist subjects are taught in appropriate rooms; a Science Lab fully equipped with gas taps, chemical storage and benches to enable practical investigative work; an Art Studio complete with kiln, Music Studio storing a wide range of musical instrucments and performance space along with the new build, a Creative Arts Studio, Sports Hall and Astro turf.

Technology:

Longacre has invested heavily in providing pupils with the latest technology to support their learning. Pupils have access to a wide range of devices, mobile and static: IPads, tablets, laptops and a suite of the latest desk tops in addition to SmartBoards, Interwrite Boards, Smoothboards and Apple TV.

Our aim is to give children confidence in managing all software and hardware as well as exposure to both Microsoft and Apple: who knows what their future will entail. Technology compliments their learning and adds to their skill base; it does not replace text.

Children are able to bring their own devices to school and many use Kindles during reading periods. Longacre is moving towards every child being able to support their own device and connect to the schools educational network.
