Small classes, talented and committed teachers, a friendly atmosphere and a wonderful rural location combine to provide an outstanding, all-round educational experience at Lucton. Founded in 1708, the School is set in a safe, healthy location in 45 acres of beautiful Herefordshire countryside. Offering a wide range of GCSE and A-level subjects, Lucton has a strong academic record and an established tradition of getting the best possible results from each pupil.
A unique feature is Lucton's "Access to A-level" course, designed to provide overseas students with a grounding in a range of subjects and incorporating accelerated learning of English - ultimately preparing them for entry to the best courses at the best universities. Over the last two years A-level results have averaged 80% A-C, and all leavers have gained places at their first choice universities.
- Most pupils join the school after an interview with the Headmistress and a taster day or days spent at the school, during which their suitability is informally and formally assessed. Pupils following this route may join the school at any time during the year;
- Entrance examinations and interviews are held in January each year for academically able pupils wishing to gain a scholarship. Academic, Music, Art, Drama, Sport and All-round scholarships are on offer for Year 7 upwards;
