Our School

Longhorsley St Helen’s Church of England First School is a happy, caring school where all children are nurtured and encouraged to reach their full potential. As a Church of England school the Christian ethos is central to the life of the school community. 

We are proud to offer a team of highly skilled and caring staff who provide a rich and exciting curriculum for our children.

Extract from National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools Report:

‘…this is a school in which happy children delight to learn and grow, in which Christian principles can be seen in generous action and in which worship enriches life.’

OFSTED judges Longhorsley to be a good school:

‘You and your staff have created a caring, friendly and harmonious school. Pupils feel safe, grow in confidence, and develop good learning behaviours. Equally, you, your staff and governors set high expectations and aspire to help all pupils achieve the very best outcomes. Your thoughtfully designed curriculum supports both pupils’ academic and their personal development.  (Jan 2017)       

We have many achievements to be proud of including Artsmark gold, Active mark, HealthySchools and Investors in People. Our successful Federation with Whalton C of E Primary School  enhances our school for children, staff and governors.

I would be delighted to show you around school and discuss what Longhorsley can offer your family.

Please contact us by phone or email if you would like to arrange a visit. Our Admissions Policy can be found under our Policy Section.

Best wishes

Mrs N. Brannen

Executive Headteacher

Everyone receives a warm welcome at our school.
