Longdon Hall School
Standing in a superb therapeutic setting with its own grounds and Forest School woodland, Longdon Hall’s outstanding reputation stems from its overwhelming success in re-engaging the most vulnerable and disillusioned learners across the Midlands.
With an innovative curriculum to reignite interest in each pupil, Longdon Hall embraces a raft of initiatives with personalised targets to ensure every child can make excellent progress which is appropriate to their specific needs.
The holistic, therapeutic approach extends beyond the classroom into the home environment, with supportive family therapy.
The school’s successful strategy wins acclaim from parents, carers, social workers and local authorities. Ofsted reported: “As a result of outstanding teaching and assessment, students rapidly become re-engaged in their education, make outstanding academic progress and develop personal, emotional and social skills outstandingly well.”
Longdon Hall’s reputation was recognised further when it won the prestigious TES Special Needs School of the Year in 2014.
"Richard presents as a happier young man since settling at Longdon; he speaks positively of school and education and Longdon has really had an overall positive impact upon him. He is clearly receiving a fantastic input from Longdon Hall which has created real change for him. I sincerely hope that this continues to enable him to continue to achieve and meet his full potential as he grows older." Social Worker
"Once again I can honestly say that being involved with the children at Longdon Hall is proving to be one of the most rewarding experiences I have as a tutor. I am really looking forward to working with you again..." Music Tutor
