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 5.30pm 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.

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.
