children from a prep school in lucton with pens in their hands

Emily, Year 13

school girl at Lucton School

I joined Lucton in Year 12 having attended Wigmore High School. I originally considered several local sixth forms but they didn’t feel quite right for me. A friend of mine at the time was studying at Lucton and recommended that I consider it.

Lucton has a real sense of community, which was one of the deciding factors for me; I didn’t want to be lost in the crowd and I felt that this was something that could easily happen in a larger college. There is a really friendly and welcoming atmosphere here too; everybody knows one another which is great and it’s very diverse; I’ve made friends with students from all over the world. 

The classes are considerably smaller than I was used to in high school and so I find it easier to contribute in class and also to get support when I need it. I feel like my teachers really understand who I am.

Being able to play sport, and being a smaller school, you always get a place in the first team! I’ve also joined the RAF cadets which is fantastic and I have had the chance to take part in lots of interesting experiences including flying which was great.

I am studying psychology, English literature, and history, and I hope to go to university next year,

although I haven’t decided exactly where yet. I am really enjoying my time here; I’ve grown in confidence and I hope that being involved with the RAF cadets, completing the Duke of Edinburgh gold award, and becoming Head Girl will make my university applications stand out.
