A Warm Welcome
I am thrilled to be the launch Headteacher of Longford Park Primary Academy - the new Gloucestershire Learning Alliance (GLA) Multi-Academy Trust school and nursery in the heart of Longford.
This is a unique opportunity for local families to join the school at the very start of its exciting journey: ready to learn, ready to grow and then flying high! Our small, highly performing Multi-Academy Trust provides an excellent, inclusive education for children in Gloucestershire focused on local needs.

Gloucestershire Learning Alliance: Our Multi-Academy Trust
All new schools now open as academies which means that Longford Park Primary Academy will not be under the direct control of the local authority.
Gloucestershire County Council embarked on a thorough consultation and bid process, recommending the Gloucestershire Learning Alliance (GLA) to the Department for Education as preferred sponsors. The GLA were delighted that the secretary of state for education approved this decision, enabling this local, highly respected trust to run an excellent school for Longford.
The creation of the GLA is rooted in a partnership ethos and a determination to ensure that more Gloucestershire young people receive an exceptional education through outstanding teaching. The benefits to the Longford community include a launch Headteacher and shared capacity of expertise across three schools so that no time is wasted in flying high at Longford Park.Read More
