Lucton School is a coeducational boarding and day school which welcomes boarders from 7 to 18 years old in a beautiful, rural setting and exists to educate boys and girls in a caring community. There are currently 350 pupils and nearly 100 of these are boarders and Lucton welcomes new pupils at all ages.
Throughout its history Lucton has welcomed students from all over the world. Improvements in travel and communication over the last two decades have produced a wider range of international students and they currently make up about 15% of the total number. Overseas students are fully integrated into the school and the boarding house is always open at weekends. Prospective students can expect to be tested in English and Mathematics before entry and by interview.
We feel we are offering a truly international education so that the ethos of an English boarding school is enriched rather than diluted. Friendships quickly spring up between the English and international students at Lucton, leading to a greater understanding for all. Lucton was awarded “outstanding for equality and diversity” in a boarding inspection, a just reflection of how well students from all backgrounds fit in.
The school is a registered charity and is a member of the Independent Schools Association, the Independent Schools Council, The Independent Association of Prep School and the Boarding Schools Association.
Life after Lucton
For the fourth year running, all the sixth form leavers who applied for university were accepted. 30% of all A levels taken achieved A* to A, over half A* to B and three quarters A* to C; many students went on to Russell Group universities. There were many excellent individual performances including A*A*A, which achieved a place to read medicine. The overall performance was significantly higher than many leading selective UK schools.
In last year’s GCSE results, Lucton’s Year 11 achieved 90% A* to C plus a 100% pass rate in the separate sciences. The last few years have shown that Lucton is able to lift students by an average of one grade for every subject at GCSE (verified by independent Midyis Data).
