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.
To apply for admission please complete the registration form below. The Registration Form is in a format, that will allow you to complete the form in the following two ways:
- Typing in the spaces provided, saving it as your son’s/daughter’s name and emailing it back to the following address: email@example.com
- Print off the form to fill in manually. Once completed scan as a PDF and email it back to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your completed form should be emailed or posted together with a copy of your son/daughter’s passport and a copy of their latest school report (you only need send a school report if your child currently attends a State School).
On receipt, the Admissions Office will register your son/daughter and a confirmation email will be sent to you containing your child’s registration number and the school’s bank details to enable you to pay the registration fee. The registration fee is £125.00 and is payment towards the administration of your child’s application to the school and his/her entrance examinations. This fee is non-refundable.
The final dates for submission of an application for September 2021 entry are:
- 11+ 31st October 2020 (if registering your child along with a Bursary/Scholarship)
- 11+ 30th November 2020 (for all other 11+ applications)

Entrance Examination and Scholarship Assessment Update
Throughout the current pandemic, we have been fully committed to providing a Covid-secure setting for all our pupils, staff and visitors.
As such, the usual entrance exam and scholarship assessment programme for pupils entering the School in 2021 has been amended to allow for all registered pupils to be assessed on a single day in smaller groups, with a number of different days set aside for this purpose.
These assessments have also been brought forward from Early January to November 2020, as set out in the Key Dates table below.
The deadline for 11+ applications has been extended until Monday 30th November. We encourage early applications where possible — allotted entrance examination dates will be communicated to parents soon after their application form is received.
The deadline for 13+ applications is Saturday 31st October and all 13+ examinations will be held on Monday 30th November.
