Boarding at Luckley-Oakfield
Luckley is the perfect choice if you are considering boarding. Set in beautiful Berkshire countryside, but just 40 minutes from London, our facilities provide a secure and happy environment for girls to live together and to enjoy the many extra-curricular activities on offer at the school.
Luckley offers flexible, weekly and full boarding provisions to suit modern family life. Boarding develops girls’ life skills, teaching them to be tolerant and considerate team players. Pupils learn responsibility for themselves, their study, their belongings and their relationships with others.
Luckley-Oakfield's Boarding Mission is to provide a warm, supportive and encouraging environment in which friendship and social skills can be nurtured with provision made for private academic study and leisure pursuits.
Our Boarding house staff, supported by current boarders, are skilled at ensuring that new boarders are absorbed into the boarding family with ease and soon become settled and happy. The friendships created in a boarding environment are long standing. Pupils and staff are in effect a second family, where close and supportive relationships are the norm. Friendships also develop across year groups enabling pupils to extend their social networks beyond their immediate peer group.
Our girls thrive within the routines set by the boarding houses. Pupils have designated study periods to work either in their own rooms, or communal computer suites and study centres. For more senior pupils this space and structure is enormously beneficial in focusing their efforts and helping them to reach their potential. For younger pupils the availability of staff to support and guide their prep is both reassuring and motivating.
