Class of 2023 Leavers’ Day
Ian Dennison (OL 1995), chair of the Old Lyonian Football Association, visited to formally welcome the Upper Sixth to the Old Lyonian Association. Founded in 1902, the FA remains an active member of the Southern Amateur Football League, with matches taking place on Saturdays from September to April at Sudbury Playing Fields.
At the farewell assembly, the Upper Sixth received a leavers hoodie, leavers book, OL tie, and pen, which we hope will inspire them to come back to the school in the future as mentors for younger students or to give a lecture to our pupils. We are confident that their resilience and hard work will lead to success in their A-Level exams and future careers.
After the assembly, we celebrated with a BBQ, and we are grateful to the catering team for making the event feel special. We want to express our gratitude to the departing students for their achievements at John Lyon and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
