About The John Lyon School
John Lyon is an academically selective independent day school, based in Harrow-on-the-Hill in North West London. Having educated boys from Harrow and surrounding areas since 1876, John Lyon will welcome its first girls as pupils from September 2021. The School is also moving from being a senior school to an all through 2-18 school with nursery, thanks to a 2020 coming together with Quainton Hall School in central Harrow.
Academic excellence is at the very heart of what pupils who study here seek to achieve. Pupils’ academic standards and personal development were both rated the highest possible ‘excellent’ in our recent school inspection.
With the opportunity to explore this broad curriculum and gain a solid grounding in all the major academic subjects, pupils work alongside dedicated teachers to develop learning skills, creativity and the ability to fully apply themselves in all areas of life. They perform well from the point they join achieve excellent results in public examinations at GCSE and A-Level. Most students are rewarded for their hard work by gaining places at leading UK universities, before moving on into the workplace in a huge and varied range of valued professions.
John Lyon pupils also gain from their time outside the classroom. The School has a strong reputation for opportunities and success in Music, Art, Drama and Sport. Add to this an exciting Co-Curricular Programme focusing on a sense of community, achievement and wellbeing, a range of more than 100 extra-curricular activities, and pastoral care that is second to none, a John Lyon education is designed to nurture high-achieving and happy children.
The School campus is spread across six buildings in Harrow-on-the-Hill and is part of John Lyon’s Foundation. We have a clear set of values that are vital to our community. These values shape who we are, what we do and how we do it.
