Introduction

John Lyon School in Harrow on the Hill, Middlesex is a UK boys boarding school. John  Lyon School is worth considering if you are searching for a boarding placement near London!
JLS is unashamedly an academic school, dedicated to helping boys realise their full potential and go on to secure places at leading universities. Many opportunities exist to stretch particularly able students by enabling them to study in greater depth and obtain additional qualifications. These boys are supported by our Gifted and Talented Co-ordinator.

There is a strong academic core to the curriculum for the first five years. Up to the end of Year 11, all boys are required to study not only English and Mathematics, but also Science and at least one modern language. ICT is taught to all boys in their first year and there are opportunities to use technology in all subject areas and in all year groups.

All boys take at least nine GCSE subjects. However, we do not believe in increasing the total number of GCSEs much beyond this, preferring to focus instead on the quality of the grades that can be achieved. In the Sixth Form, The John Lyon School stands out for its flexible approach. Unlike many schools, we try not to let timetable clashes prevent boys from following their preferred combination of subjects: instead we simply ask pupils what they would like to study, and then we do whatever is necessary to make it possible.
JLS offers an extensive range of traditional academic AS and A-Levels. Some of our more recent additions to this range, such as Psychology, Music Technology and Critical Thinking, have extended the creative aspects of the Sixth Form curriculum.
Year of foundation: 1876
Some history:

In 1572, John Lyon, a local yeoman farmer, was granted a charter by Elizabeth I to found “the Free Grammar School of John Lyon”. By the 19th Century, helped by John Lyon’s generous endowments, “the Free Grammar School” had become Harrow School, one of the most famous and prestigious public schools in the UK. However, Harrow School had also moved away from its founder’s original intention of providing an education for local boys, with ‘foreigners’ (boys from outside the parish) hugely outnumbering the locals. To address this issue, the “Lower School of John Lyon” opened in 1876 as a day school for local boys. It was later renamed as The John Lyon School.

Today The John Lyon School is part of the Foundation which also governs Harrow School and John Lyon’s Charity. It has its own Board of Governors with delegated powers from the Foundation. The School has had 12 Heads since 1876 and has developed into one of the top independent day schools for boys in the UK. Our most recent inspection report, published in 2011, states that the "pupils' personal development is excellent. They show high levels of confidence, responding well to the school's inclusive ethos and its focus on developing the individual."
