At Lucton there is a wide array of awards aimed at encouraging balance and breadth. Students living in the 'nine favoured parishes' of Lucton, Croft, Yarpole, Bircher, Luston, Eyton, Kingsland, Aymestrey and Shobdon are all eligible to apply for the Pierrepont Scholarship (named after our Founder).
Whilst acknowledging that academic performance is of the greatest importance and all pupils must work towards high levels of achievement, Lucton also has a range of awards to reflect sporting, artistic and musical achievement.
As Lucton students, holders should be shining examples within their individual field. All-round Awards exist for those who show real capability in several areas, including evidence of reasonable academic potential. These awards suit the sort of Luctonian who will get maximum benefit from our wide range of facilities and educational experience.
