“I feel that the school is very pupil-centred and provides a great mix of sports and education. The option of additional wrap around care is also great for those parents who need it.”

The Long Close School Journey


(2 – 4 years)We understand how quickly young children develop – and how well they respond to a rich, warm, secure learning environment. More importantly, we know how to create that environment so that each individual child receives the stimulation, encouragement and opportunities they need to grow and thrive.

Junior School

(5 – 11 years)We believe that the foundations for academic success are laid during these years, which is why we place great emphasis on developing self-confidence and a love of learning. We also encourage our children to become more independent and responsible as they progress through the school so that they are ready for the challenges of senior school.

Senior School

(11 years to 16 years) It is in the Senior School at Long Close that the value of our individualised approach to education is most obvious. From Year 7 to Year 11, our students are on a learning journey, aiming to perform as successfully as possible in their GCSE examinations, and so secure a brighter future for themselves.
