School Life

Life at Luckley offers an extraordinary breadth of opportunity – the chance to try many different things, to find a passion, or develop a special interest. We stretch and challenge our pupils, at the same time encouraging the ability to reflect and take onboard the constructive advice of others.

Flexible Provision

We recognise the need to offer flexibility in our provision, to meet the demands of modern family life. Our Enrichment Programme enables pupils to stay until 17:30 from Monday to Thursday each week. Most activities are included within the school fees.

A number of additional options are also available to enable parents and carers to drop off and pick up pupils at times to suit their daily commitments.

Enrichment Programme

Our rich and varied programme of after-school enrichment activities runs from Monday to Thursday inclusive and enables your child to explore different interests and discover new talents. The programme is updated each term, with new activities added. All pupils are encouraged to take part and the variety on offer ensures that there is something for everyone. Supervised prep forms part of the programme, which enables pupils to complete their homework in a structured, but relaxed environment.

Pastoral Care

Luckley House enjoys a reputation for high standards of pastoral care. All pupils have daily contact with their Form Tutor, who takes a close interest in their academic and social welfare. Regular meetings with the Heads of Sections and Deputy Heads provide a forum for all staff to discuss the individual progress of each child.


House Competition

We have four Houses at Luckley; Blake, Cornish, Galloway and Randle, named after former Heads of the School. All pupils are allocated to a House when they join the school and remain in that House throughout their time at Luckley. House competitions take place throughout the year, including sports tournaments, music competitions, House Bake-off, Debating, Reading Challenge and the popular Christmas Cracker pantomime.


Healthy eating is on the menu at Luckley. Our dedicated catering team provides nutritious, varied and tasty meals throughout the year. Vegetarian and vegan options are always available and special dietary requirements are easily catered for.


School Transport

We have partnered with Vectare, a specialist school transport management company, to provide you with a dedicated booking website for school transport. This will also offer you a host of other benefits, including tracking the school bus and receiving email notifications of when your child has boarded the service.



We offer an online uniform shop for all uniform requirements. To place an order, visit and in the School Shops option, search for Luckley House.  All items of the Luckley uniform are also available to purchase from the Uniform Shop, based at the School.  Personal appointments with the Uniform Coordinator are made for each new pupil.
