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 have a 75 year history and are proud of our traditions 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.

'Outstanding in all areas' SIS Inspection Report

Long Close School was graded ‘outstanding’ in all four areas of the latest SIS Inspection report: the quality of education; pupils’ personal development; safeguarding pupils’ welfare, health and safety; and leadership, management and governance.

Outstanding Nursery provision

Our Nursery was also graded ‘outstanding’ in all areas in its latest SIS inspection report. This is underpinned by our use of the Bristol Standards to support and improve the quality and effectiveness of our Early Years provision.
