Thank you for visiting the website of The John Lyon School. I hope it will provide you with a useful introduction to JLS, which is one of the country’s top 20 independent boys’ day schools in terms of academic performance. At JLS, we are aiming for excellence in every area of school life. In particular, we have a strong and growing reputation for the strength of our music, art, performing arts and sport.
In the first three years, we give boys a good grounding in all the major academic subjects. Teachers work to develop boys’ learning skills, their creativity and their ability to apply themselves to their studies. Building on this platform, our boys have in recent years gone on to achieve excellent examination results at GCSE, AS and A-Level. Most of our leavers gain places at leading UK universities.
Our record of strong academic success is combined with a great reputation for pastoral care. Unlike in very large schools, at JLS it is possible for staff to get to know all the boys. We can, therefore, genuinely treat each child as an individual, with individual talents to be nurtured and individual challenges to be met.
I do hope you will contact us to find out more.
Miss Katherine Haynes, Head
