neil-clayton-3Neil Clayton, the Founding Principal of Lucton School Shanghai, has been working in the UK’s Okehampton High School for nearly 10 years, and has helped to improve the school rating from "Good" to "Excellent."

The educational mission of Lucton School Shanghai is to stimulate the maximum potential of each student and enable them to realize their unique talents and abilities. At the event, Principal Clayton said: “The well-reputed British education and the unique English boarding school system are recognized world-wide. These advanced teaching ideas and methods can help students gain a lot of learning experience in the important Middle School period. British boarding education has a long history and has long been regarded as an outstanding feature of elite education in the UK. The boarding system can provide students with all-weather learning opportunities, and also cultivate student abilities beyond academics.”

At the meeting, Mr. Paddy Armstrong, the Director of Lucton School UK and senior advisor to the Boarding Schools’ Association, explained the advantages of British boarding education to the parents. Yang Xi also shared his own experience of studying abroad, and his true feelings and reflections of the British education.

Founded in 1708, Lucton School UK is a famous private school with over 300 years of history. As a direct branch school of Lucton School UK, Lucton School Shanghai is a full-boarding school providing international education with a British flavor.
