Longdean is a ‘good’ school with ‘interesting and engaging lessons;’ teachers who have ‘strong subject knowledge’ and ‘commitment and enthusiasm’; and ‘strong’ outcomes for pupils. A strong Sixth Form curriculum and leaders who ‘know learners and their circumstances well’ (Ofsted 2015) mean that 100% of Sixth Form parents praise the Sixth Form experience and would recommend it. 96% of parents say that the school is well led and managed (questionnaire Nov 2015). The Headteacher’s ‘vision for the academy is communicated very effectively and his determination to create a high quality of education for pupils is a powerful factor in the academy’s success’ and senior leaders ‘translate his ethos into all that they do.’ (Ofsted 2015).
