Inspiring learners through high expectations Longspee is a specialist Academy, inspiring learners through high expectations that are embedded into rich, relevant and supportive learning opportunities. Pupils experience valued relationships across the community and gain security from routine, structure and the development of lifelong learning. This is fundamental to our children’s well being and future life success.

Working in partnership with parents and carers, staff and Committee Members provide opportunities for all children at Longspee Academy to be successful in their academic, personal and social development.
