Lucton International Summer School, Leominster, Herfordshire


The emphasis in our Summer School is on the provision of high quality English teaching delivered by our well-qualified staff preparing students for the Trinity College London Integrated Skills in English examinations.

The Lucton Summer School courses are small and friendly. Our own term-time teachers and pastoral staff work on these courses providing 24 hour care appropriate to the students' ages and needs. We are always there to help students when they require support and to provide a secure and safe environment.

Boarding is central to life at Lucton and boarders live in two boarding houses at the heart of the school. Live-in houseparents have their own children at the school and there is a very real family  atmosphere within the boarding community. Boarders have their own bedroom, although the younger pupils have the opportunity to share. It is a sociable house and boarders can relax at the end of the day in a range of common rooms where they can watch TV, use the play station and computers or chat in the newly-refurbished café where they can prepare simple snacks and drinks.

The weekends are an action-packed affair! Boarders enjoy a varied and interesting programme of activities. There are regular visits to larger cities for shopping and cultural experiences as well as an extensive list of outdoor activities including: paintballing, kayaking, theme parks, high ropes, mountain biking, quad-biking, ice-skating and trips to special events like major sports matches, concerts and theatre visits.
