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

School Fees

We work hard to make our school fees competitive and these are reviewed annually by the Head and Governing Body.

Our fees incorporate all meals, books and equipment and additional items such as school trips and visitors are added to the end of term fee invoice. We provide parents with an annual breakdown of the likely additional items to assist with budgeting.

Parents are able to pay fees in a number of ways: for further information, please contact the Bursar at bursar@longacreschool.co.uk or telephone 01483 893225.

WHAT OUR PARENTS & PUPILS SAY

  • 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.
