Registration is the first step for parents who wish their sons or daughters to be considered for a place at John Lyon.

The usual entry points are at 11+, 13+ and 16+ (Sixth Form), although pupils may be considered for other years if places are available.

From 2021 we will welcome girls to John Lyon for the first time, into Year 7 only.

Parents should aim to complete registration at least 12 months before the date they have in mind for entry.

The deadline for entry in September 2020 has now passed.

Registration Procedures
