Pupils Enjoy Familiarisation Day at John Lyon

Our Year 5s enjoyed a Familiarisation Day visit to our senior school, John Lyon, this week.

It was the very first visit for the pupils and they welcomed the opportunity to see the school and take part in a wide carousel of activities including kayaking, virtual reality, and languages (French and Spanish). Kayaking in the pool was certainly a highlight for many, whilst swimming with virtual sharks in the VR session was probably the scariest point of the day!  The day concluded with an informative session on John Lyon and the transition to senior school for parents and guardians.

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.  Our pupils enjoyed their day very much and are looking forward to the next event.
