What the school says...

Longacre School is a thriving, co-educational preparatory school for pupils aged 2 ½ to 11 years. Set in a beautiful rural location on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Shamley Green, between Guildford and Cranleigh, the school offers a wonderful environment for young children. The school buildings comprise the original large 1902 house plus modern, purpose-built classrooms standing in nine acres of grounds. Facilities include a brand new sports hall and Astroturf, sports fields, woodland and an adventure playground. Longacre has a proud history and the motto of the school’s founder, Ursula Fairfax Cholmeley, ‘A happy heart goes all the way’ is still very much part of the school’s ethos.
At Longacre, we believe that children learn more effectively when they are happy, and that excellent academic results can be achieved without subjecting pupils to hothouse pressure. The fact that our pupils gain a range of scholarships, and that they transfer successfully to their senior school of choice, is evidence that this approach works.
Alongside the core curriculum, Longacre offers a wide range of sporting opportunities, stimulating off-site visits and exciting workshops. There are after school clubs every day, ranging from cooking to judo, and regular masterclasses for able pupils.
