Welcome to The Stephen Longfellow Academy

As Principal of the Stephen Longfellow Academy I am delighted to welcome you to our website.  You will find really useful information about the academy as well as seeing our achievements as the weeks and terms unfold.

The Stephen Longfellow Academy is part of The GORSE Academies Trust; a not-for-profit charity whose drive is to create exceptional schools in Leeds.  The Executive Principal, Sir John Townsley is a National Leader of Education and the founder of The Stephen Longfellow Academy (TSLA).

The Stephen Longfellow Academy offers both exceptional education and therapy.  Pupils are taught national curriculum subjects and have access to a range of therapeutic services such as counselling. Therapy is delivered as both an integrated part of our timetable but also within discrete groups or on a 1:1 basis.  We believe a therapeutic and nurturing approach allows our students to grow in confidence and increase their self-esteem so that they can successfully integrate into their learning environment and the wider community.  By developing personalised learning programmes to meet the needs of vulnerable young people, we want all of our students to have the opportunities similar to those found in large mainstream schools, so that they can leave as confident young adults, ready to seize the opportunities of further education, training or work.
