Longfield Learning Station

Why ‘Longfield Learning Station’? 

As the beating heart of the North of Darlington, we are extremely proud of our heritage of being known for the first passenger railway to use steam trains. At Longfield, we wanted to highlight our history and this is where the name ‘Learning Station’ evolved from. 


What is the Longfield Learning Station? 

Longfield Learning Station is the vehicle that drives a knowledge rich curriculum here at Longfield Academy. Each platform of the Learning Station energies the learning journey our pupils go on, that challenges them with a broad and balanced curriculum and rewards their love of learning.  


In short, it develops WHAT and HOW the pupils are learning. 


Our timetable is a two-week timetable to maximise the broad and balanced curriculum we deliver.
