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

Pupils, staff and parents refer to the Long Close Family and we believe that children will do best when they enjoy coming to school. Long Close School was graded ‘outstanding’ in all areas of its SIS Inspection report.

School Nursery - learning in and out of the classroom

As part of our School Early Years setting, our Nursery is not only a place to play but also to learn. Children start to read and count and enjoy their PE, Music and Forest School sessions. Nursery was  graded ‘outstanding’ in all areas in the SIS inspection report.

Top Prep School Results

Our GL assessment enables us to check the accuracy of attainment within a national context as well as preparing for 11+. Our test results far exceed the National Average. Year 6 results placed us in the Sunday Times Top 50 Prep Schools in 2018.

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. Read more for our 2020 GCSE Results.
