Aims and Vision

Our vision is for every Longdean student to achieve their academic and social best in an engaging, inspiring, and challenging environment.  Our Strap Line ‘Rejoice in thy youth’ illustrates this.  Longdean School will empower all students to become confident, responsible, productive lifelong learners and engaged citizens.  

We want everyone in the Longdean Community to:  

  Feel safe and secure so they are able to achieve their best
  Be inspired, challenged and motivated to seek out new challenges and opportunities to learn
  Express their views whilst respecting the opinions of others
  Raise money for charity, engage in voluntary work in or out of school
  Make appropriate decisions so they have control and choice over their future
  Be cutting edge and creative in our planning, teaching, marking and feedback
  Work with parents, students and teachers to ensure excellent outcomes for young people
  Follow a personalised curriculum so they develop the social and academic skills needed in society


Our 2 priorities for the school year 2016/17 are as follows:

  Develop leadership at all levels in the school
  Develop students' ability to read, write and speak appropriately in different contexts
