International Admissions Procedure
Stage 1: Enquiry
Ideally we would like to be able to interview every prospective student: however, for practical reasons, this is not always possible. Entrance examinations and interviews for overseas candidates are arranged through one of our overseas educational agents or through the school. In all cases we require copies of a pupil’s most recent reports, personal school references etc. If we feel that the candidate is suitable for an available place, parents will be encouraged to register.
Stage 2: Registration Form & Fee (£150.00)
Once we have received the Registration Form and fee, most applicants will then be expected to take an appropriate Mathematics and an English Test paper set by the school. We can usually arrange for these papers to be taken at the pupil’s present school, or some agencies offer supervised facilities. If the application is successful, then parents will be invited to confirm their place. Please contact the Registrar for a Registration Form.
Stage 3: Acceptance Form, Deposit (One term's fees) and Visa Support
Once this form and your deposit have been received, the school will guarantee the place. The deposit is refunded when the pupil finishes his/her education at Lucton. Overseas students will be sponsored for visa support after the deposit has been received.
International Admissions Policy
Lucton School welcomes pupils from all backgrounds and all walks of life, including pupils of all faiths and none. The criteria for admission to the school are applied equally and fairly to all applicants. The final decision as to whether a pupil is accepted for entry rests with the Headmistress and the Governors.
The school accepts applications from pupils who are of average or above-average ability who, in the opinion of the Headmistress and the Governors, have the potential to benefit from the kind of education that Lucton School provides. In view of the small class sizes, pupils with mild learning difficulties can sometimes be accommodated and there is provision for parents to request one-to-one tuition at extra cost. The school is not able to provide for those with acute learning difficulties.
The school has a policy of ensuring that pupils are taught for the majority of subjects in classes of no more than 20 pupils.
