I am delighted to be able to welcome you to our website. Longfield Academy has a long tradition as a popular secondary school choice for local families. The academy is recognised by Ofsted as being Good with an Outstanding Sixth Form. Our students achieve well and we have a positive learning environment, as well as strong links within our community. At Longfield Academy, we care, we are respectful, we believe in each other, we work hard, and we have boundless aspirations. Staff here are ambitious for the academy and all its pupils. Our broad and balanced curriculum, underpinned by International Baccalaureate principles, helps to prepare our students to effectively participate in a democratic society. We are extremely proud of our state-of-the-art facilities and the opportunities these afford our students to ‘Achieve Beyond Expectations’.

I sincerely hope that you enjoy the virtual tour of our academy, and that our website gives you further insights into our vision and ethos. More importantly, I look forward to welcoming you to the academy so that you can experience what makes us so special.

Our Mission

At Longfield Academy, we believe in a school community that nurtures unique individuals into being highly successful in their education, whilst supporting the development of every student into a responsible and valued member of their local, national and international communities. Regardless of their background or abilities, we strive to ensure that every student meets our high standards, achieves beyond expectations, and leaves our academy as lifelong learners with outstanding opportunities available to them.

To ensure we support our students’ development, Longfield Academy follows the recognised and highly acclaimed International Bacculaurate’s Middle Years Programme in years 7 to 9. This programme spans across eight subject areas and focuses on developing students into communicative, knowledgeable, and caring risk-takers, who are also principled, reflective, inquisitive, open-minded, and balanced thinkers. These attributes are instilled in all our students to support them developing through their education and beyond, and are an excellent foundation for our students as they progress into GCSE, Post-16 and further education.
