Open Days

Open Days and School in Action

Open Days and School in Action days at John Lyon provide an excellent opportunity for future young Lyonians and their parents to see the School at work.

All our open events are designed for pupils seeking to join the School at all three main entry points:

–  Year 7 (11+) boys and girls
–  Year 9 (13+) boys only
–  Sixth Form (16+) boys only

Our open events give you the chance to discover more about John Lyon School life through tours, asking questions of pupils and staff, and hearing short speeches from key members of staff and students.

We understand that selecting the correct school can often be difficult and daunting for parents, so we hope these Open Days provide the opportunity to get to know John Lyon, what we believe and stand for, and what we can offer your sons and daughters.

We are always happy to answer any questions you may have about admissions. Please contact our Registrar, Rebecca Davies, at admissions@johnlyon.org or on 020 8515 9443.

All upcoming open events will appear on this page.


Hear from teachers and pupils, have a two-minute video tour of the School site and facilities, learn more about our academic subjects with the option to ask questions directly to each department, and register for a School in Action event.


All open events will be conducted with social distancing best practice in mind. Details of events may change depending on guidance in place at the time of the event. All people registered for School in Action days will be kept informed of changes.
