Welcome to Longwood Primary Academy and Nursery – a school that provides children with an inspirational learning experience

Since opening in January 2015, we have developed a thriving, successful community where children’s voices are heard and their interests nurtured. We are proud of our academic results and our achievements. The challenging curriculum we provide for all pupils is unique and, as you will see, something that builds lifelong character and resilience – in preparation for the workplace.

Our building, constantly evolving like our learners, provides an exceptional learning environment. Our pupils, taking pride in all they do and displaying excellent behaviour and attitudes to their learning, are a credit to our outstanding and committed staff.

I am proud of the school and the consistent efforts and initiative used to provide the very best opportunities for the children of our school. Our 70 things at Longwood is designed to give your child not only an education to scaffold their future but experiences that shape them as a strong person, belonging to something special.

Our wellbeing system, coupled with high quality teaching in pursuit of academic excellence, provides children with a place in which they can thrive as individuals – feeling safe and secure.

We know that providing a child with the building blocks very early on is fundamental to their success. Our outstanding Early Years facilities are designed to ensure the best possible outcomes before starting Year 1.

Visits to the school are encouraged – our door is always open. I look forward to meeting you
