About Us

Longfield Academy is part of the Leigh Academies Trust. Leigh Academies Trust is one of the country’s largest and most-established multi-academy trusts operating across Kent, Medway and South East London. It contains primary, secondary and special academies and is highly inclusive and successful.

The Academy is led by the Principal, Dr Felix Donkor. The Academy is structured around three colleges which serve as a ‘small schools’ model of pastoral care for our students. In each college, there are two tutor groups per year, which therefore fosters the strong links that exist within a small community. You can find out more about the colleges, or our academy vision and values, using the links below.
