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 2½ 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.
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.
Hello and welcome to Longacre. Our Admissions doors are still very much open and we are currently in the process of making offers for school places starting in September 2021. Whilst current restrictions do not allow for us to host any Open Days or to welcome any visitors onto the school site, we are happy to offer individual virtual tours of the school with our Headmaster, Matthew Bryan.
This week saw the launch of Little Foresters, our new parent and toddler group sessions on a Thursday morning. We will be trialling these sessions with Longacre parents this term with a view to opening them to the wider public from September. #LittleForesters #toddlergroup
What busy bees the Kindergarten children have been this week. The children have had a variety of different activities on offer this week, including number work, letter work, independent creative work and mindfulness activities and we even had time to make a wormery in Forest School!The children have also taken a ‘dive’ into the sea as part of our topic and have created their own ‘Under the Sea’ collages. The focus for this activity was for the children to begin to use anti-clockwise movements and retracing over lines which created a wave effect. We have talked a lot about the sea and all the creatures that can be found at the bottom of the ocean.Our sounds of the week have been ‘b’ and ‘f’ and we have had such a lovely selection of objects brought in for our sound tables, including balls, boys, Barbies, birds, fire engines, fishes, flowers, a fern and fairies. ...
