Our School Community

John Lyon has an active and connected community consisting of over 5,000 Old Lyonians across the UK and worldwide, who remain in touch with the School and each other. The School organises and hosts a wide range of events throughout the year including reunions, networking and social events as well as keeping in touch via email, e-newsletters and our social media channels.

Our Parent / Guardian Community

All parents/guardians at our Prep and Senior School are members of this community and are encouraged to be part of the ‘Friends of the Lyonian Association’ group and support by:

  • Promoting the spirit of the community within the School by organising a variety of events.
  • Facilitating and encouraging participation in the wellbeing and interests of our pupils.
  • Communicating between parents/guardians and the School for matters that affect pupils and families.
  • Arranging social events and fundraising for the School to provide additional resources and donations to chosen charities.

Our parents/guardians at the Prep School have recently been able to donate significant funds to the School for a playground upgrade and other equipment.
