About TLES

 

 
The Long Eaton School is a highly successful, forward thinking school, committed to developing high aspirations, a thirst for knowledge and a passion for lifelong learning shared by students and staff. Our vision statement, produced in consultation with students, parents, Governors and staff, underpins everything we believe in the way the school operates:
 
Opening Doors to the Future
 
Through:
 
  • Care and respect for ourselves, each other and the environment.
  • Challenge and support for all to reach their potential.
  • Co-operation between school, home and community.
  • Consistency and fairness in our values and expectations.
Learning Culture for All

 

 

All students at The Long Eaton School follow a broad and balanced curriculum, designed to promote academic excellence and develop individual talents and interests. This also includes a Personal Social Health Education programme. We aim to develop independent learners with transferable skills which can be applied across a range of school subjects and also in later life.

 

We believe that The Long Eaton School is a school with high principles and good discipline, a learning community which encourages mutual respect and in which everyone is an achiever. At The Long Eaton School I see staff who are highly motivated and committed professionals and I see young people full of confidence and eager to learn. I also see parents who are proud of their children's achievements, proud of the school and keen to work with us to support their child's learning. The Long Eaton School is one of which every child matters, and we work hard to raise aspirations and to promote the social and moral development of our learners by setting positive examples.

 

As an Academy, we have been able in recent years to enhance staffing and improve resources significantly, and to develop an increasingly broad curriculum. Being an Academy also gives us even more freedom in the way we set and meet challenging targets in respect of examination performance, new courses and retention into our Sixth Form. We have purpose built facilities for ICT and Photography, and unique specialist provision for Astronomy, alongside a dedicated study centre for Sixth Form students.
