Our curriculum reflects an understanding of our community and provides what parents and students want. It meets the needs of a truly comprehensive intake, realising the dreams of highly academic Oxbridge students whilst supporting others with life and learning skills. Excellent links with primary schools enable us to have a good understanding of our student's knowledge and skills levels, which help effective transition.
Teachers are constantly striving to improve the quality of their teaching and learning. The quality of teaching is continuously monitored through a broad range of approaches to enable each teacher to become the best they can be. Within the school, we have a number of teachers who are examination markers and the curriculum ensures all learners are able to meet their aspiration targets.
As part of The Spencer Academies Trust we offer all of our staff members a range of training opportunities. We are a member of PiXL and of Challenge Partners. This ensures we are developing the most innovative and exciting lessons of any school in the country. The environment at Long Field is vibrant and exciting for learning. Our cut flower gardens, herbaceous borders and areas for students to relax as well as our aplacas, guinea pigs and hamsters make coming to school that little bit more enjoyable for all.
