Headteacher’s Introduction

Welcome to Fred Longworth High School. Our aim is simple – to inspire all our students to achieve their best through “belonging, engaging and succeeding together”.

We have a tradition of achieving excellent examination results and students are given a strong head start in life. Our 2016 results continue this tradition, with 70% achieving 5 A*-C GCSE grades including English and Maths. Excellent teaching is at the heart of our success. Committed and enthusiastic teachers deliver high quality, enjoyable lessons that encourage a lifelong love of learning.

Visitors to Fred Longworth frequently comment upon the happy, purposeful atmosphere and the excellent behaviour of our students. We believe in treating each student as a unique and valued individual and your child’s talents and abilities will be nurtured both within and outside the classroom. As a result, students make outstanding progress and leave us as creative, talented and rounded individuals.

We believe this to be the result of our emphasis on high standards, a strong commitment to building good working relationships between staff and students and the excellent support we receive from parents. We constantly seek ways to foster a real sense of community spirit for students, parents and staff and our students thrive within this supportive environment.

I hope that our website gives you a flavour of what Fred Longworth High School has to offer. If you are a prospective parent, you are welcome to visit us to find out more about how we achieve our success.
