Longwood Primary School

About Us

Longwood Primary School nurtures, challenges and celebrates the individual in an environment that inspires curiosity, courage and respect. We are proudly a compelling alternative to the more traditionally structured larger schools.

Located just off the Hume Freeway (16km south of Euroa and 23km north of Avenel), Longwood Primary School has been educating children from the local township and surrounding farmland areas since 1888. The school is set on seven acres of expansive grounds that offer a stimulating physical environment. We have a current enrolment of 50 children and a strong family focus. We believe the social and emotional development of our students depends on active and regular engagement with their families and a sustained connection to the local community.

At Longwood children have the freedom and support to pursue their individual interests and passions. Our highly skilled staff form meaningful and sustained relationships with students and have a deep understanding of how children learn. We pay careful attention to the development of each student and set high standards for all. We know young people have brilliant ideas and can do amazing things.

Longwood is all about opportunity and possibility. We know that given the right conditions every student has the capacity to grow to their full potential and we work hard to create those conditions. Our facilities inspire play-based learning, creative endeavour and extended inquiry. If your child’s passion is the great outdoors, we are fully equipped for their learning journey. Our spacious grounds consist of playground, sandpit, oval and bushland, including a chicken coop, woodwork annex, greenhouse and market garden. We also have a large synthetic grass sports area and an adjacent under-cover area that provides plenty of shelter for outdoor play on rainy days. We are always looking to improve our school buildings and grounds to create the best learning environment for our children.

The Longwood Primary School community is justifiably proud of its small but vibrant school!
