We are Longfield – an 11-16 school with a relentless determination to achieve the best possible outcomes for its pupils.  We are a school that aims high.

Longfield has built a reputation for academic achievement, strong pastoral care and excellent behaviour.  Attendance exceeds national average and pupil progress is excellent across all subjects.  Our achievements have been recognised with many national awards such as Gold Investors in People, Gold Parental Engagement, Improvement and Excellence in English and Maths and International Schools Award and we continue to be an over-subscribed school.  We believe our success is due to the dynamic and talented staff who are determined that pupils achieve to the best of their ability.

The strong relationships we share with parents and carers of our pupils, whose support is vital, ensures that pupils are supported to be successful in all areas of school life.  We invite parents and carers to join us for regular academic mentoring meetings where targets are set to help pupils succeed.  Parents and carers have access to online information to keep up to date with progress.  We are proud to be part of the community and take an active part in local life.  We invite those around us to regularly get involved with school life.  During enrichment week, for example, representatives of the armed forces and local businesses visit the school, encouraging pupils to engage in interesting, educational and enjoyable activities.

We are academic.  We are different.  We are welcoming.
