New school year, new year 7 starters and new

building! Long Field School has just opened its latest new and exciting

development. The Social Sciences building has been completed ready for the new

academic year and Year 7 students are settling in to the new learning spaces in

the building well.

The building is a state of the art

construction housing five classrooms, one multi-functional laboratory and a

group teaching space/mini library. In addition, the building is to be equipped

with a suite of new laptops.

Each learning space has its own identity with

each room named after a famous person such as Churchill, Darwin and Freud. The

Social Sciences and Cognitive Learning Departments are now based in the new

build which also acts as a base for new Year 7 starters.

School starter Lauren Garner (11) of Burton

Road, Melton, said: "The new building is very big and has a lot of resources. I

am really enjoying my time here."

Fraser Rutherford (11) of Frisby, said: "I was a bit nervous about

going to secondary school at first but the teachers are really kind here and

there is a great classroom environment, everyone is very friendly."

Long Field, a 'Cognitive' school with

emphasis placed on the development of thinking skills and positive decision

making, aims to develop successful independent learners who are aware of their

own skills and how they can best be utilised in an ever changing world.

Every student at Long Field begins the day

with 'Planning & Reflection' time during which they set individual learning

goals and follow the local and National news. Year 7 students have made an

outstanding start to the new year with an excellent approach to their learning.

We hope that any prospective parents will be able to come and see these new

facilities during our open week beginning Monday 25th September.
