We are RURAL - Located just outside of Shrewsbury, our three acres of ground include a sports field, landscaped playing field, playground, Grace's garden - our quiet space, class cultivation beds, mini allotment with chicken run, wild area for climbing trees and making dens, outdoor classroom with pond and dipping platform.
We are SMALL – small enough to know each and every one of our 131 pupils for the individuals they are; yet not so small that we can’t achieve great things. Sport is a great example of the way we do things at Longden: a determination to succeed, to build on achievement, to make things better, encouraged by the pleasure of playing as a team, typical of the work of governors, teachers, support staff, parents and children.
We are CHURCH – a strong Christian ethos is evident in all we do in this serving community where learning is both an act of respect for the world and a journey of preparation for each pupil towards a later life of potential fulfilled. Thankfulness, curiosity, joy, compassion and hope are just some of the values we promote.
We are VALUED – Parents say they value the way the school works hard to make learning exciting and real; the many trips and fun projects that bring the curriculum alive; the caring attitude of the staff; the opportunities to be involved in their children’s learning, the ‘open door’ culture that encourages them to be part of school life in a variety of ways.
We welcome our community to Longden and invite prospective families to visit us to see just how special we are. Please do get in touch if you would like to come and see us.
