With teams at a number of age groups, water polo is a sport enjoyed by many pupils at John Lyon.
Pupils are introduced to the fundamentals of the sport in their swimming lessons and are given multiple opportunities to play and develop further skills with lunchtime and after-school sessions. Our water polo teams also use the well-equipped fitness suite to improve fitness and strength before school and at lunchtime sessions.
We play regular fixtures against other schools and clubs, and run inter-house water polo across all year groups. We compete in the London Schools Water Polo League.
Pupils typically join John Lyon in Years 7, 9 and 12, largely from a 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 other parts of Middlesex, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.
