Lucton is a thriving independent day and boarding school set in Herefordshire's idyllic countryside. We build on our 300-year heritage and traditions to provide a stimulating and forward-looking environment.

Lucton's teachers are dedicated to bringing out the full potential of each student whether in the class, on the sports field, in music, or through the many extra-curricular activities we offer. Small classes, and a family atmosphere helps to create a homely place in which students feel accepted, valued and secure.

The school day at Lucton is particularly balanced, allowing our students to be involved in a wide variety of activities both in and out the classroom. In fact, one our greatest assets is our location; 55 acres of beautiful countryside allows children to explore fields and woodland without ever leaving the campus!

Lucton achieves consistently good results. This year our Year 11 students achieved a fantastic 97% pass rate in their GCSEs with 87% attaining 5 or more passes including English and maths. Again, this year, sciences did very well at Lucton and the separate science subjects were amongst many subjects that achieved a 100% pass rate. A significant number of our A level students achieved top grades of three A*, 40% of results were A* and A grades, and 80% being awarded A* to C.

Lucton has a vibrant performing arts community, with individual music lessons, ensembles, choirs, and our own orchestra. As well as drama lessons, as part of the curriculum, and regular opportunities to perform, we also offer LAMDA lessons within the school day.

Sport is an integral part of Lucton School, and we offer an impressive range of activities for a small school; traditional sports such as hockey, football, tennis, netball, basketball, cricket, and rugby sit alongside triathlon and dance. We have our own indoor swimming pool, and our own Equestrian Centre where we annually host NSA competitions. We can even accommodate students own horses or ponies.

For many students boarding is central to their life at Lucton. Based at the heart of the school, we have two boarding houses; School Cottage for children aged between 7 and 13, and Croft House for our older students, which boasts their own single rooms. On weekends boarders enjoy a fantastic programme of activities including cultural trips, theme parks, visiting major cities and attractions, river rafting, paintballing, and much more.
