The benefits of boarding

Our aim is to provide a warm, supportive home for our boarders, in which friendships and social skills can be nurtured. We have a small boarding community and our boarding offer is very flexible to meet the individual needs of the modern family. We provide a home for both full and weekly boarders from the UK and overseas, and in addition, our flexi-boarding provision enables a number of our day pupils to regularly stay overnight. This is of great benefit for our families, particularly when parents have work or social commitments, or pupils themselves have an evening event at the school. Flexi-boarding can also be beneficial for pupils during exam periods, enabling them to spend valuable time revising, with the added reassurance that they will be in school ready for their exam the next morning, with no worry about being late!

Weekly boarding

Weekly boarders typically come to school on a Sunday night and stay until Friday, returning home again for the weekends after school finishes. Living at school during the week enables pupils to make the most of each day, without the stress of the daily commute, freeing up precious time to focus on their homework and enjoy a rich co-curricular programme of activities. Boarders usually throw themselves into the life of the school and are often found at the heart of everything that is going on.


Short Term Boarding Package

We offer a boarding package for international pupils wishing to come to Luckley for a minimum of one term into Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12, ultimately to improve their English language and experience a British education.

An all-inclusive fee includes all food, books, extra-curricular activities, most boarding trips, EAL lessons and transport to and from the airport on specified dates.


Sixth Form Boarding

Boarding during your Sixth Form years at Luckley is a great way to develop your independence and prepare you for life beyond school.

Weekly boarding in particular is greatly beneficial; it allows UK based Sixth Formers to really focus their studies during the week, with no time wasted on travel to and from school and with staff on hand to support with coursework and exam preparation. A structured program ensures a balance of activity, prep and down time. 

Other benefits include the opportunity for House leadership roles and to lead activities with the rest of the boarding house. This can be especially valuable for those students looking to go on active gap years. 

Boarding Principles and Practice

Our aim is to provide a warm, supportive and encouraging environment in which friendship and social skills can be nurtured with provision made for private academic study and leisure pursuits.
