Luckley House School (formerly Luckley-Oakfield School) is a private day and boarding school for girls in Berkshire in England. It has a community of about 250 girls, with about 200 pupils in the first five year groups, and 50 girls in the Sixth Form. The school is set in a rural location, south of the historic market town of Wokingham.

History[edit]

Luckley School, founded in 1918, has always occupied its present site. The main house, which dates from 1907, replaced Luckley Manor, an ancient property mentioned in the Domesday Book. Oakfield School was established in the Lake District in 1895. The two schools were amalgamated on the Wokingham site in 1959 as an independent educational trust regulated by the Charity Commissioners.

House system[edit]

There are four houses at Luckley: Mary Cornish (red), Edith Cavell (blue), Millicent Fawcett (green), Mary Wollstonecraft (yellow). There are house events throughout the year, which include the annual Christmas Cracker Drama event, Sports Day,Junior and Senior Rounders, Tennis, Netball, Badminton, Hockey, and the House Music Competition. Each event contributes points towards the end of year House Cup and the winners go on a House outing at the end of the summer term. On an ongoing basis the four houses are expected to devise community service events or fundraisers to include as many house members as possible. The project has to be co-ordinated and promoted by the girls. House Captains and deputies are also responsible for liaising with staff about transport and guidance, as well as building links with staff at the places that they are supporting.
