Open Days

When I came to John Lyon, I wanted to find new friends. In reality, I found a family that now forms an integral part of my life.

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

We understand that selecting the correct school can often be difficult for families.  

We encourage all families to come in and visit John Lyon at our open mornings during which you will be given a tour of our campus, meet with and hear from the Head and other members of our Senior Leadership Team. You will also have an opportunity to ask them any questions you might have. 

Our open days are designed to help you get to know John Lyon, learn more about what we believe in and stand for, and what we can offer your children.   

All of our entry points are co-educational.  

Families are welcome to book tickets for our Prep School’s Meet the Head tours for Nursery (3+), Reception (4+) and Year 3 (7+). You can also book tours at our Senior School’s School in Action open mornings for entry points in Year 7 (11+),  Year 9 (13+) and Sixth Form (16+).
