Senior Management Team

According to the School Inspection Service the quality of leadership, management and governance at Long Close is outstanding. Under the leadership of the Headteacher, the Senior Management Team is constantly looking at ways to improve and develop every aspect of the school’s performance, while always staying faithful to the ethos that binds the Long Close community together.

As with every other member of staff, the Senior Management Team operates an open-door policy, so if you have any queries or suggestions about the way the school is run, your feedback will always be welcome.
