Familiarisation days at John Lyon

Pupils at Quainton Hall have been thoroughly enjoying their Familiarisation Day visits to John Lyon. The most recent visit was on Monday 24 January, which saw 67 Year 5 and Year 6 pupils from Quainton Hall, along with their teachers, make the short trip to Middle Road.

The excited pupils experienced a range of activities and sessions on the Harrow-on-the-Hill site, ranging from Dance in the Sports Hall to STEAM in the bespoke labs to clay model-making in Art. They were also given a tour of the school to see the many facilities on offer to them. Year 7 John Lyon pupils were available on the day to help the younger pupils from Quainton Hall feel comfortable and settled in.

The day concluded with a session for parents and guardians, which included an opportunity to meet the Head, a talk on wellbeing, a tour led by Year 7 guides and an informal Q&A with the Head and Senior Management Team.

Familiarisation days provide families with an opportunity to see John Lyon’s exceptional site, meet with pupils and staff, and get a sense of the school community, culture and values, which are shared by Quainton Hall. We look forward to the next Familiarisation Day, which will take place on Monday 21 February.
