Welcome to Longdon Hall School

Longdon Hall School is committed to raising achievement and enabling pupils to recognise their potential and supporting them through a personalised, engaging curriculum. Our priority is to develop the foundation knowledge and skills required to make a manageable and smooth transition to the next life stage. We will offer a supportive environment where our young people accept responsibility for their actions, make positive decisions and display pro-social behaviour.

Ethos

Our vision is to offer a personalised learning experience whilst addressing a complex range of barriers to learning, including social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and associated conditions including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiance disorder and a range of autistic spectrum disorders. We will meet the needs of the most vulnerable young people and will equip them with the necessary skills for life through differentiated learning and intervention support.

Our vision is to help each young person to maximise their potential, to promote their self-esteem and well being and to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens with a fundamental understanding of British values including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
