About Long Close Junior School

We believe that the foundations for academic success are laid during Junior School 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.

Next Steps: Senior School

At Long Close we understand precisely where every single one of our students is on that journey. Thanks to our tried and trusted systems of assessment and daily monitoring, we know where they are struggling and need a little extra focus. At GCSE level, our pupils achieve an average of over half a grade higher in every subject than predicted by national norms.

 Latest SIS Inspection Report

We are delighted that the School report describes us as: “The quality of the curriculum is outstanding … Teaching is of a consistently high quality … The high expectations that staff have of pupils along with the high expectations that pupils have of themselves create a thirst for learning … Pupils of all abilities make very good progress.”

Prep School Curriculum 

We offer a broad curriculum at Long Close Prep School. From the outset we place great emphasis on the core subjects of English and mathematics, but we also introduce even the youngest children to science, Spanish, history, geography, ICT, music, art and design, drama and Personal, Social and Health Education.
