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.
