Longmoor is a dynamic and ambitious school, where our aspirations, strong curriculum and values-driven family ethos enable our children to flourish both personally and academically.

We have a diverse and vibrant community that embraces difference by celebrating the lessons we can learn from each other. Our approach to learning is progressive and professional; we believe in providing our children with an education that both stimulates and challenges in equal measure.

Everything we do is underpinned by our DRIVE values, which every member of the Longmoor Family is expected to live and breathe. We teach our children to act with determination, respect, integrity, valour and excellence at all times, and have the same high expectations of our teachers, support staff, parents and governors.

Fundamental to achieving this is having dedicated, expert and happy staff. We work hard to ensure that we recruit the right people, those who are passionate and committed to embracing Longmoor’s unique approach to learning.
