At Longacre our ethos is ‘a happy heart goes all the way’.


  • We believe that every child has excellence that should be celebrated and every child needs support in other areas.
  • We believe childhood needs to be protected and children deserve to have fun at school.
  • We believe in a holistic education.


Longacre aims to ensure that children are ready for the next adventure.

We achieve this by:

  • providing a holistic education – core subjects, languages, humanities and science – both in the classroom and outdoors.
  • stretching children who are flying, and igniting the spark where this has dimmed.
  • encouraging problem solving, critical thinking, outdoor learning, teamwork and leadership for all.
  • running a huge range of extra-curricular clubs and activities to support children’s interests, and making sure that all children are involved in music, art, drama and performance.
  • working with parents to ensure the best possible outcomes for children.
  • making sure children have fun as well as being prepared for 11+.
  • treating all children as individuals, from supporting their learning to enabling them to go to the widest range of destination schools.
