Staff List

Staff List

We operate an open-door policy at Long Close, which means that you are always welcome to come in and talk to any member of staff about your child’s education. We also make sure that our teachers, in particular, are a highly visible presence at the beginning and end of the school day. At drop-off and pick-up time, for example, you will often find the Headteacher at the school gate ready to field any questions or simply have a chat.

If you would like to Contact Us to make an appointment, talk over the phone or correspond by email – whatever suits you best.

Below you will find lists of all the school staff at each area of the school from Nursery all the way through to Senior school. You can also find out more about our Leadership Team here.

If you would rather speak over the phone, please call the school office on 01753 520095 and we will do our best to put you in contact.
