Admissions Process

Your child can be registered with Luckley House School at any time, however, places are limited, so early registration is advised.

A Registration Form is included with our prospectus pack or can be downloaded at the bottom of the page.

The completed form should be returned to the Registrar with a non-refundable registration fee of £100. Early registration enables us to keep in regular contact with you regarding school news, events and developments as well as to advise you of the next steps to consider, at the appropriate time.

On acceptance of a place at Luckley House School a deposit of £600 is payable, which will be refunded in your child’s final term’s fees.


We admit pupils at age 11 and 13 through an entrance examination process, where both academic ability and all-round potential are assessed. Entrance examinations are usually sat in January and will test pupils in mathematics, English and non-verbal reasoning.

We consider a report from your child’s current Headteacher and all candidates will have an interview with our Head or senior member of staff. As part of the interview process for Year 7 entry, your child will be asked to complete a personal ‘Story Board’ to demonstrate his/her hobbies, achievements and interests. A copy of the template is available to download at the foot of this page.

Pupils sitting the examination must be registered by the end of November of the preceding year.

2018 Entrance Examination Day – Thursday 4 January 2018

An alternative examination session will be available for candidates unable to attend on 4 January.


If your child wishes to join us at other entry points, he/she will be assessed through an entrance examination, interview and school report. In instances where the pupil is overseas and unable to sit the examination at Luckley, the exam can be sat at your child’s current school under examination conditions. Admission is dependent on vacancies in the relevant year group.


Students wishing to join the Sixth Form at Luckley are expected to have achieved at least 5 GCSE passes at grade C or above, including English and Mathematics. It is expected that at least grade B has been obtained at GCSE for a subject to be studied at A Level.

Current and prospective students are invited to apply for Academic Scholarships and Awards in Art, Drama, Sport and Music. The examinations and assessments for these are held in the autumn term prior to admission.
