Welcome to Long Road!

I joined Long Road as Principal in January of this year and have been made to feel so welcome, the same friendly welcome we give to all our new students. Long Road is a very special place. As a specialist sixth form college, we offer a highly successful mix of curriculum breadth with excellent pastoral care. We nurture, challenge and inspire our students to achieve their very best.

We are values driven:

We aim to encourage and inspire each other to success – to be the best that we can be.

We share a passion for learning and its capacity to transform lives.

We show respect for ourselves, for others and for our environment.

We act with integrity; we keep our commitments and are honest, fair and trustworthy.

We will achieve our vision through collaborative, effective teamwork, both in college and with our community partners.


These are not simply words, you’ll see our values demonstrated across our college community.

We are passionate about our mission – we believe our students deserve the very best education we can provide. Consequently, our standards for our students and for ourselves are high. Ofsted agreed awarding, in March 2017, a rating of GOOD across all categories inspected. Our aspiration today is to become outstanding.


I look forward to meeting you soon,

Best wishes,
