At Lucton, we adopt as flexible a system of boarding as possible, to suit the differing circumstances of our boarding families. For many, full boarding is the most suitable arrangement. Some parents, however, choose to take their children out at weekends to spend time together. Temporary boarding is also possible and occasional boarders are always made to feel most welcome, whether it be for one night or for a whole term.
‘Croft House’ is a purpose-built building which accommodates 78 boys and girls between the ages of 13 and 18+, in single rooms (with some double rooms for younger boarders) in separate corridors according to their age and sex. There are five common room areas with televisions, games, pool table, table tennis table, computers and snack facilities and boarders have full use of the school's sports hall, games field and use of the indoor swimming pool. The atmosphere is homely and as relaxed as possible within a structured environment. The houseparents each occupy one of two apartments which are an integral part of the Boarding House but distinct from it.
‘School Cottage’ has eight shared rooms used for junior boarders. A houseparent couple occupy an apartment in School Cottage.
