Luckley House School is a thriving Coeducational Independent School, located in Wokingham, Berkshire, offering day and flexible boarding provision for pupils aged 11 to 18 years. The school is set in attractive grounds with excellent facilities, and at just 40 miles from London, is the perfect location for full or weekly boarders.
Our uniqueness lies in the combination of our size, Christian ethos and flexibility to meet the needs of individual pupils and their families. We provide a distinctly academic education that is tailored to the individual needs of each pupil. This is offered in the context of a broad curriculum which celebrates the arts and sports, as much as academic achievement.
From 23 March, in line with government guidelines, we moved to remote learning at Luckley. Our recent inspection report highlighted two aspects of school life that have stood pupils in good stead in the move to remote learning. “Pupils of all abilities develop excellent information, communication and technology (ICT) skills throughout the school. All pupils are provided with a notebook computer, which they are encouraged to use as part of their learning in all their subjects.” In addition, through our extensive project programme, pupils have well-developed independent learning skills for their age, again highlighted in the inspection report. Therefore, we have experienced a very smooth start to the introduction to remote learning. The emphasis now is to continue to refine and improve in the coming weeks. There will be lessons to learn through experience, but the whole school community is ready to work together to achieve excellent outcomes. Learning how to work and collaborate will bring huge benefits, especially for continuing education beyond the school years. The work from home concept has been on the rise for many years, but this generation of school pupils will be the experts.
The week of 29 June to 3 July saw our Virtual Sports Week in place of Sports Day! The Sports Department ran daily challenges and others (such as 3k, 5k, Stepcount, TikTok and KM covered) that could be completed throughout the week. The goal was to win House points for each activity completed. Pupils, parents...
Luckley House School is the perfect choice if you are considering full, weekly or flexible boarding. Set in beautiful Berkshire countryside, but just 40 minutes from London, our facilities provide a secure and happy environment for all pupils to live together and to enjoy the many extra-curricular activities on offer at the school.
We recognise the need to offer flexibility in our provision to meet the demands of modern family life. A number of options are available to enable parents and carers to drop off and pick up pupils at times to suit their daily commitments.
Pupils work in the classroom is supplemented by a variety of educational trips and events throughout the year, including visits to places of interest and in-school workshops. Overseas trips are always popular, with recent destinations including South Africa, the USA, Spain (sports tour) and the regular ski trip to Europe.
If you are looking for a career in a School where class sizes are small, where teachers receive excellent CPD and teach in state of the art facilities, then Luckley House School could be for you.
