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 May and a Saturday Open Day in autumn.

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

From September 2021 we will welcome girls to John Lyon for the first time, into Year 7.
All girls and their parents are most welcome at our Open Days and Open Evenings.

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. In January we also host a Sixth Form Experience Day.

Details of events currently open for registration are listed below.
