Longlands Primary School

Traditional Values, Modern Thinking

The present Longlands School was built in 1905 to replace the temporary hutted building known locally as the 'tin school', the roof being made of galvanised iron. The school cost £3,822 to build.

The registers of the new school were marked for the first time on 23 October 1905. 23 October is now celebrated as the School Birthday.

This means that 2005 will be the centenary of the school. We are gathering together historical material for this celebration, and, if anyone has anything they wish to share for this occasion (photographs, books, memories, etc.) then the school would like to hear from you.

Until 1935 the school provided an education for local children up to the age of 14. In 1935, the school was reorganised into a Junior Mixed and Infant school catering for children aged 4-11.

Our aim at Longlands is to create a positive, stimulating and happy learning environment through which all children will achieve success and develop their potential to the full. We look to promote their academic, spiritual, moral, cultural and physical development so that in time they will be ready for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. We value the individuality of all our children and are committed to providing them with the same opportunities, regardless of gender, race, creed or culture.


Science club is held after school and run by Mr Lawless, it is open to all Key Stage 2 children.
Le Club Francais

Le Club Francais runs on Tuesday for Juniors and Thursday for Infants in the School hall from 3.35pm to 4.35pm. Please enquire at the school office for further details. French club is privately run and will therefore incur a charge.

All children have the opportunity to participate and represent the school in a variety of sports. Through the Sports Co-ordinator scheme, the school has enlisted in house and outside agencies to help train the children in the skills of playing a variety of sports.
These include:

Football - Years 2, 3 and 5
Hockey - Years 5 and 6
Gymnastics - Years 1 and 2
Tennis - Year 4
Rugby - Years 5 and 6
