Be part of something special

Long Close School is Slough's only independent school providing an outstanding education for boys and girls age 2-16 years.

Welcome to Long Close – Private School in Berkshire

Long Close is the only co-educational, independent school for ages 2-16 years in Slough. We are proud of our traditions (and will celebrate our 80th anniversary in 2021) but also embrace the latest educational ideas. The school has a real sense of community – every child is known and is nurtured and encouraged to do their very best.

Throughout 2020, Long Close School provided certainty, consistency and structure at a time when all were hard to come by. Now, as we begin 2021 in lockdown, our Online Learning provisions will ensure that pupils receive continuous and uninterrupted education.

Our Admissions department also remains virtually open, ready to talk to you about your child’s educational future.

Happy and motivated students

At Long Close, we prize academic ambition and the development of character in equal measure.  Our curriculum is therefore carefully crafted to provide children with opportunities that challenge them in the classroom and beyond.

School Nursery - learning in and out of the classroom

In Little Long Close, learning starts at two years. Our child-led approach to learning places children’s interests at the heart of the curriculum, producing exceptional results. By the end of Reception, 90% of children are working above, or at, the expected level of development in Reading and Writing.

Top Prep School Results

We embed the 11+ Curriculum from Year 1, alongside a curriculum of length and breadth, to provide pupils with a rounded education. Our regular GL Assessments, and intervention programme, ensure every child experiences the joy of progress.

Excellent GCSE results

Exam results are one important measure of a school’s performance and we are proud to report consistently top grades which enable students to go on to selective Sixth Forms. In 2020, 100% of our students achieved Grade 5 or above in GCSE English and Maths.
