Boarding

For many students, boarding is central to their life at Lucton. Based in the heart of the school, we have two independent boarding houses: School Cottage for children aged between 7 and 13, and Croft House which houses our older students.

For some, boarding may appear a daunting experience and the first occasion that many of them have spent time away from home; however, both School Cottage and Croft House have a strong family feel, both with live-in houseparents, who are on hand to provide help, support and guidance whenever it is needed.

Both houses feature communal lounges where students can relax, chat, watch television and play games, and for older students, Croft House also has its own Cinema Room as well as American Pool and Table Tennis tables and a large kitchen cafe where students can perfect their culinary skills. During the evenings, they are also able to access teacher-supervised homework sessions allowing them to get the most from their education.

On weekends, boarders enjoy a fantastic programme of activities which typically include cultural trips, theme parks, visiting major cities and attractions like Cadbury’s World, hiking, river rafting, go-karting, ice-skating, paintballing and much more.

Lucton offers a variety of boarding options including full time and weekdays only, as well as flexi boarding packages, which are ideal for parents with busy working schedules during the week.
