Welcome to Admissions

Welcome to Admissions at Longacre School! I am Lynne Crisp, the Registrar here at Longacre and I hope to be able to assist you in your admissions journey and answer any questions you may have about the school, the admissions process or even just about moving to the area.

To get a real feel for what makes Longacre so special it is always best to visit – either on a personal tour or by attending an Open Day. There is nothing we love more than showing prospective families around our wonderful school. With COVID restrictions making this impossible at the moment, we are happy to arrange individual private tours with our Head, Matthew Bryan, who will take you on a virtual guided tour of the school via Facetime or Zoom and answer any questions you may have.

Longacre is a non-selective school and our admissions process is designed to identify pupils who are able to benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education and to make a positive contribution towards the life of the school. Our main entry points are Nursery and Kindergarten (age 2 ½ – 4), Reception (age 4+) and Year 3 (age 7+) although entry into other year groups is possible during the school year if places are available.

Once your child is registered, they will be invited to attend an assessment day or a taster day (for Nursery & Kindergarten). All assessments are undertaken on a one-to-one basis with the class teacher or members of our Learning Support team. The children are not placed under any unnecessary pressure and they are very much encouraged to spend as much time in the classroom with their peers as possible. 

An offer is then made subject to the child’s performance in assessments and the availability of places. For entry at 5+ and above, a confidential report is sought from the child’s current school.

If you have any admissions enquiries, please feel free to email me on lcrisp@longacreschool.co.uk or contact me on 01483 893225. Alternatively, please follow the link below to provide details of your enquiry or to book a virtual tour.
