Welcome to Longacre and thank you for taking the time to look at our website. As you explore, you will get a taste of what makes Longacre the magical school that it is.
Longacre is a co-educational independent school for children aged 2 to 11. We are just five miles south of Guildford, but set in the glorious Surrey Hills. Children have woods to explore, time to enjoy the fresh air, and encouragement to get muddy.
We are thrilled to announce that Longacre has been shortlisted as a Finalist for Outstanding Pastoral Care in the Muddy Stilettos Best Schools Awards 2022. To find out more about our outstanding pastoral care
"Longacre parents will talk your ear off about how nurturing the school is. They love it. Much is made of it being a school that lets kids be kids – children can roam around in the grounds, climb trees, make dens, hang off the adventure playground equipment. Muddy trousers are not uncommon by any stretch. But there’s discipline and rigour too. Kids are proud to come here." Want to find out more?

Our learning philosophy here at Longacre is inextricably linked to the school motto: “A happy heart goes all the way”. Children can only be truly happy when they feel that they are learning, progressing, finding fulfilment, challenge, recognition and excitement in their studies. Critical to this is the relationship between the learner and the teacher, with regular feedback, clear targets and aspiration without pressure being hallmarks of a Longacre education.
