Boarding is central to life at Lucton and boarders live in two boarding houses at the heart of the school. Live-in houseparents have their own children at the school and there is a very real family atmosphere within the boarding community.
Boarders have their own bedroom, although the younger pupils have the opportunity to share. It is a sociable house and boarders can relax at the end of the day in a range of common rooms where they can watch TV, use the play station and computers or chat in the newly-refurbished café where they can prepare simple snacks and drinks.
The weekends are an action-packed affair! Boarders enjoy a varied and interesting programme of activities. There are regular visits to larger cities for shopping and cultural experiences as well as an extensive list of outdoor activities including: paintballing, kayaking, theme parks, high ropes, mountain biking, quad-biking, ice-skating and trips to special events like major sports matches, concerts and theatre visits.
