Open Days

Open Days at John Lyon provide an excellent opportunity for future young Lyonians and their parents to see the School in action.

There are two main open days each calendar year: a weekday Open Evening in Spring and a Saturday Open Day in Autumn.

These Open Days are designed for boys seeking to join the School at all three main entry points: Year 7 (11+), Year 9 (13+) and Sixth Form (16+).

In October we also host a Sixth Form Open Evening, designed for students who are considering a John Lyon education in Years 12 and 13 in preparation for Higher Education and the workplace beyond.

Pupils typically join John Lyon from a North London, West London and North West London catchment area, including Harrow, Wembley, Stanmore, Pinner, Watford, Rickmansworth, Northwood, Ruislip, Hillingdon, Uxbridge, Ickenham, Northolt, Southall, Ealing, Acton, Edgware, Brent Cross, Finchley, Barnet, Camden, Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham, as well as parts of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.

Sixth Form Experience Day, 17th January


Friday 17th January 2020
9.00am – 3.00pm


Our Sixth Form Experience Day gives external students who are interested in joining John Lyon for A-Level studies an opportunity to experience first-hand the academic curriculum, co- and extra-curricular opportunities, specialised pastoral support, Higher Education provision, and facilities available to the School’s older students.

Students will be given a tour of the School, attend two taster lessons, meet and hear from key Sixth Form staff, talk to current students and visit the School’s sporting facilities. At the end of the day, parents are invited to join their sons for coffee in the New Memorial Hall.

This Sixth Form Experience Day is designed for pupils currently in Year 11, but Year 10 pupils are also most welcome.

New Open Day and Open Evening dates will be published shortly
