It is my pleasure as the Principal of Longsands Academy to welcome you to our website.
Longsands Academy, part of the Astrea Academy Trust, is a successful, fully inclusive secondary school serving the community of St Neots and its surrounding area. We pride ourselves on providing an engaging, purposeful and supportive environment in which all of our students feel empowered to reach and embrace their full potential with confidence and become responsible, well rounded citizens.
The pursuit of academic excellence is at the heart of the Academy. Through high expectations of behaviour; a commitment to great standards of teaching delivering a knowledge rich curriculum; and the strong, supportive relationships that exist between staff, students and their parents/carers – all students, regardless of their background or personal circumstances, are encouraged to achieve their academic aspirations.
Our enrichment programmes help students understand the opportunities available to them. This further promotes an aspirational culture around student achievement, which drives a sense of purpose in class, and improved outcomes and life chances for our students.
We recognise the importance of student support, ensuring everyone has access to a committed team of professionals who work tirelessly to maintain their wellbeing. This ensures our students develop the confidence and resilience to make the most of their time with us.
Longsands Academy delivers academic excellence, embraces the value of enrichment, and invests in community citizenship. Through this, we deliver on our core purpose: to secure the best possible experience, learning, and outcomes for every young person for whom we have responsibility.
I look forward to welcoming you to our Academy.
Mr N D Owen
