After a traumatic event, Ollie wakes to find himself recuperating from drastic injuries in hospital. Bed-bound and under the influence of his medication, Ollie’s world begins to ebb and flow between the boundaries of past and present, dream and reality, fantasy and nightmare.
The Middle Road Theatre Company presents The Legacy of the Prince. Starring John Lyon pupils from Years 9, 10 and Lower Sixth, and written and directed by Drama Gap Assistant Ethan Peters OL, this original play, a sequel to Peters’ The Arrival of the Prince, comes to the Boyd Campbell Hall this November.

A retiring collection will benefit pupils’ chosen charities. Following the concert guests are invited to stay for mulled wine and mince pies.
All pupils, parents, siblings and other members of the John Lyon community are most welcome, together with members of the St George’s congregation and community and the wider public.
We Will Rock You
John Lyon Musical
Monday 9th December
Tuesday 10th December
Wednesday 11th December 2019
Ryan Theatre, Harrow School
Everywhere on the planet, people watch the same movies, listen to computer-generated music, wear the same clothes and hold the same thoughts and opinions. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown. However, a small group of “Bohemians” struggles to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and (most of all) live music.
John Lyon’s 2019 musical, We Will Rock You, comes to Harrow School’s Ryan Theatre in December – an extravaganza featuring the hit music of Queen, complete with amazing costumes, choreography and orchestra.
Sixth Form Experience Day
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.
