Longridge Towers School, Berwick Upon Tweed   
Setting
Set in the stunning Northumbrian countryside, close to the Scottish Borders, Longridge Towers is a school with a very special atmosphere.
It is a place where pupils aspire and achieve academically, growing and finding fulfillment as individuals.
Longridge is the only independent co-educational day and boarding school in Northumberland offering education for children from the age of 4 through to 18 in small class sizes.
Caring for all
We are small enough to really care about each individual pupil but large enough to ensure all who come here - whether a boarder, a day pupil, a member of the Junior Department, or a sixth former - are offered the best possible start in life both educationally and socially. A Longridge education endows individuals with the character, strength, knowledge and abilities to go out into the world with confidence and purpose.
Access
Situated on the outskirts of Berwick upon Tweed, the school is almost equal distance between the cities of Edinburgh and Newcastle. Day pupils come to Longridge from all over Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. A comprehensive daily bus network extends to Dunbar in the north, Greenlaw and Kelso to the west and Beadnell, Alnwick and Powburn in the south.
Facilities
Surroundings contribute significantly to pupils' education. Our beautiful grounds, containing the main school building, a magnificent Victorian mansion, consist of woodland, lawns and playing fields. Our facilities include a library, science laboratories, assembly hall, a specialist music room, a separate art department, a design centre, a sports hall, rugby, hockey, cricket pitches, an athletics facility and all weather tennis courts.
Our recently installed computer network serves all parts of the school. The Junior Department, with its own fully equipped playground is housed in two separate buildings near to the main school.
Boarders
Pupils who join the school as boarders are cared for by non-teaching Houseparents. All of the boarding accommodation has recently been refurbished and the centre of Boarding House life is a large family room/kitchen, which has is own very distinctive family atmosphere.
Curriculum
At all levels there is a broad curriculum to cater for the needs of pupils with a wide range of abilities. Alongside the academic curriculum there are many opportunities in Sport, Music, and Drama. Extracurricular activities include Duke of Edinburgh's Award, Young Enterprise and there is an ambitious programme of trips and visits. Numerous concerts and dramatic productions take place each year.
