Welcome from the Headmaster

May I take this opportunity to welcome you to our website that will introduce you to all that Longridge has to offer – both to our students and their parents, as well as to the wider community around us.

Longridge Towers School is in many ways a unique independent school set in its own grounds. A perfect environment for boys and girls aged 3 – 19. We are a very open community, where focus on the individual pervades all we do.

The pupils are happy here – happy because there is a common sense of being involved, supported and successful. The happy child is likely to be the most fulfilled, and we want pupils above all to enjoy their time with us. Learning itself should be challenging and stimulating. We are unashamedly demanding in our academic standards; we simply expect to add value in all that we do. Our curriculum is planned from age 3 through to age 19 and is extremely flexible, thus allowing the typical pupil personal and academic breadth: to be able to study traditional subjects with more recent and credible additions.

I am delighted that you are considering Longridge Towers School. Our website and prospectus can give you only a snapshot of life here, but a visit is highly recommended to see us in action. Our ethos is often described as tangible. Meeting the staff and pupils will give you a real feel for how we can nurture and develop your child in what is a remarkable and dynamic place. You can be assured of a very warm welcome – and continuing caring enthusiasm.

The pupils are happy here – happy because there is a common sense of being involved.
