What the school says...

Luckley House School is a thriving independent day and boarding school set in beautiful Berkshire. We provide a first-class education, with a strong Christian foundation, for pupils aged 11 to 18 years.

The uniqueness of our school lies in the combination of ethos and size. Our focus on the individual brings an education that affirms talent and develops potential. We enjoy excellent academic outcomes for all our pupils - our value-added scores are high, as are our examination results.

Our facilities are superb, with a long term development plan in place to ensure that we continue to meet the demands of our evolving community.

A visit is a must to really appreciate what our school has to offer!

Special Education Needs

Luckley House School is committed to the equal treatment of all pupils including those with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities. This policy works towards eliminating disadvantages for pupils with SEN and disabilities by: using best endeavours to ensure that all pupils (including those with medical conditions) get the support needed in order to access the school's educational provision; not treating disabled pupils less favourably than their peers; making reasonable adjustments so that disabled pupils are not put at a substantial disadvantage in matters of admission and education; ensuring that pupils with SEN and disabilities engage as fully as practicable in the activities of school alongside pupils who do not have SEN and disabilities; and ensuring parents are informed when special educational provision is made for their child and are kept up to date on their child's progress and development.
