HMP Long Lartin is a Category A High Security dispersal prison and is part of the Long Term and High Security directorate housing some of the most serious offenders in the prison system that are drawn from all areas of the UK and includes some Foreign Nationals. These prisoners are in the early stages of their sentence and are likely to progress into other establishments prior to release. Most of the curriculum is therefore focused on helping prisoners to develop English, maths, and personal skills to enable them to benefit from continued training, education and work whilst still in custody.
