Long Close School is a wonderful place of learning for boys and girls aged 2-16 years. We are large enough to provide an outstanding range of opportunities for developing well-rounded, confident and happy young people, yet small enough for each individual to be known, valued and nurtured.
Our pupils can, and do, pursue high academic standards whilst enjoying, and succeeding in, many other interests. Key to our success are the small classes in which traditional high expectations and a strong culture of excellent pupil behaviour and effort leads to truly extraordinary learning. Our caring and experienced teachers strive to draw out the very best from every young person, enabling them to grow into happy, confident, skilful and caring young people, equipped and ready for life in an increasingly complex world.
Beyond the classroom, life at Long Close is exciting and fulfilling. Our many and varied co-curricular opportunities in sport, music and the arts offer every child the chance to gain confidence in whichever area they discover their interests lie.
I am confident that the advantages a through school education such as that at Long Close provides are unrivalled. The rapport between staff and pupils, and between pupils across different ages, cultivates a strong sense of belonging and nurtures timeless values such as responsibility, courtesy and consideration for the needs of others. The pupils themselves both past and present are our greatest ambassadors: self-assured, fulfilled and successful, with an enduring affection for their school.
I hope that you will visit us in person to see for yourself the close-knit community and family atmosphere that makes Long Close truly unique.
I look forward to welcoming you personally.
