Short Term Boarding Package

Short Term Boarding Package

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

An all-inclusive fee of £14,500 per term (2024/25) includes all food, books, extra-curricular activities, most boarding trips, the loan of a Microsoft Surface device, EAL lessons and transport to and from the airport. 

EAL Provision

One hour per week to include conversational group lessons geared around general everyday and academic English, and if required, for focusing on writing and grammar.

Boarding Experience

Pupils will share a bedroom with at least one other boarder. Wherever possible we will ensure that pupils of the same nationality are not sharing so as to encourage English language speaking. There are shared common rooms for all boarders to relax and socialise together during their free time.

Trips And Extra-Curricular Activities

There is a full programme of after-school activities available throughout the school week and all boarders are encouraged to participate. Weekend trips will include cultural visits to London and Windsor, as well as leisure activities.

Medical Insurance

International boarding pupils who are staying at Luckley House School for less than 6 months should arrange adequate medical insurance for the duration of their stay. If your study program is 6 months or longer, you can access healthcare services through the NHS without the need for private health insurance as you will have paid a healthcare surcharge as part of your immigration application.  Pupils who are staying longer than six months will also need to register with a local GP which the school will assist with.

All students from overseas must have a Guardian based in the UK in case of an emergency
