I am delighted to welcome you to Longfield Academy. Longfield is an amazing place to study and learn and we are proud of all our achievements. Our well-qualified and dedicated staff are always on hand to guide students and ensure they achieve beyond expectations and make good progress. The inspirational building supports the understanding of modern day education; a £24 million new build in 2011 has allowed the academy to move forward in its quest to be ‘Outstanding’.
Throughout their time at Longfield Academy, students of all abilities, interests and talents are offered the opportunity to be part of an aspirational, challenging and well-disciplined community. They will be offered experiences within and beyond the classroom that will form the foundations of and encourage a lifelong love of learning.
