In my opinion, this sentence is OK. Tag added.

Then what's the difference between the current sentence and ''It's been such a long time since he left school.'' ?

"It's (=It is)such a long time since he left school" and
"It's been (=It has been) such a long time since he left school"

mean the same thing.

They are just different tenses of the verb "to be" (simple present and present perfect). The "it has been" one might put a little more emphasis on the fact that it is long time since he left school.
