John Lyon students have a long track record of securing strong A-Level results, which enables them to target the very best universities for the courses that they wish to read at university.
More than half of our leavers go on to study at Russell Group universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. In addition to this, the calibre of our students means that around one in five of our students secure places at the prestigious University of London, with students going on to study at Imperial, King’s, UCL and Queen Mary.
In order to help each boy get the most from his university applications, John Lyon has a dedicated Higher Education team which oversees the process. To prepare for specific courses, the Excellence Team provides subject mentors for Oxbridge candidates, while Medicine and Dentistry applicants benefit from specialist advice in the Biomedical Society. The small tutor groups means that individual guidance from tutors and the Sixth Form team is tailored to every students’ need.
Along with the Head of Higher Education, our Careers Advisor is always on hand to talk through all aspects of life after John Lyon, including the options on school leaver programmes in city firms. This is an option that is increasingly popular for those students who wish to enter such careers as banking without first going to university.
