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
To apply for admission please complete the registration form then submit this to the Admissions Office together with a copy of your son or daughter’s passport, a copy of your their latest school report and the registration fee of £125. The registration fee is payment towards the administration of your child’s application to the school and his entrance examinations. This fee is non-refundable.

You will receive an acknowledgement and confirmation that your son is eligible to sit the entrance examination. This does not constitute an offer of a place at the School.

The final dates for submission of an application are:

  • 31st October of the school year prior to entry for 11+ and 13+
  • 31st January of the school year prior to entry for 16+

The registration form is downloadable below. To complete registration you will need to send back by mail or email:

  • The completed registration form
  • A copy of the prospective pupil’s passport photo page
  • A copy of the prospective pupil’s latest school report

You will also need to pay the non-refundable registration fee of £125. This can be a cheque by mail, or by bank transfer (please call or email for details).

Cheques should be made payable to The John Lyon School.

Once this process is complete, parents will receive an acknowledgement and receipt.
