Prep School Staff

Long Close Prep School is a place where great teaching is cherished. We give our staff the freedom to make their lessons as creative and engaging as possible, knowing that this is the best way to inspire and inform the children. We make a point of employing staff with specialist qualifications in particular subjects so that our children can benefit from their expertise and passion. And we give them the opportunity to develop their skills year upon year.

As evidence of this, Long Close has recently been accredited for the second year in a row as a Ruth Miskin Training Badge School. This honour reflects the fact that all of our staff have been trained to deliver the acclaimed Read Write Inc phonics programme, helping to ensure that our Year 2 children can read, write and spell to a high standard.

The most important quality of a Long Close teacher, however, is their commitment to the ethos of the school. Our staff make a point of getting to know the children and their families, and throw themselves wholeheartedly into the broader life of our community – whether running clubs, organising school trips, or supporting the work of the PTA.

As part of this commitment, our teachers are always happy to meet with parents if they want to discuss some aspect of their child’s education. This open-door policy applies to every subject teacher and form tutor, as well as to the Head of Junior School and the Headteacher.
