Welcome to John Lyon

A leading independent boys’ school in Harrow-on-the-Hill, North West London

Academic excellence is at the very heart of what boys who study here seek to achieve.

With the opportunity to explore a broad curriculum and gain a solid grounding in all the major academic subjects, boys work alongside dedicated teachers to develop learning skills, creativity and the ability to fully apply themselves in all areas of life.

Building on this platform, pupils perform well from the point they join us – whether at age 11, 13 or 16 – and achieve excellent results in public examinations at GCSE and A-Level. Most students are rewarded for their hard work by gaining places at leading UK universities, before moving on into the workplace in a huge and varied range of valued professions.

A John Lyon boy also gains from his time outside the classroom. The School has a strong reputation for opportunities and success in Music, Art, Drama and Sport. Add to this an exciting Co-Curricular Programme focusing on each boy’s sense of community, achievement and wellbeing, a range of more than 70 extra-curricular activities, and pastoral care that is second to none, a John Lyon education is designed to nurture high-achieving and happy boys.
