Lyndhurst House provides a structured but individually responsive education from Reception (4+) to Common Entrance and scholarship at 13, delivered by an experienced, well-qualified staff team. For 68 years Lyndhurst has been sending its 13-year-olds to the many renowned senior schools in London, and some to boarding schools further afield with an excellent record of academic success and achievement, balanced by strong participation in sports, music, art and drama.

Our pupils are lively, enthusiastic and engaged. We focus on providing a full-rounded education, by paying particular attention to the individual needs of every pupil. This is achieved by keeping class sizes small throughout the school. Staff are able to give boys the individual attention they need - whether that means pushing them on towards scholarship work or giving them extra support in areas where they may be struggling.

Reflecting its diverse north west London community, our school is non-denominational and welcomes families of all religions and cultures. Pupils from a wide range of cultural backgrounds work and play together harmoniously and are taught to be tolerant and respectful of the opinions of others. Put simply, they are taught to value the importance of kindness. Ask a Lyndhurst House boy what the most important thing about being at the school is and the most common answer will be to be kind to each other. Our recent ISI inspection report graded both pupils' achievements and personal development as "Excellent" and said: "Pupils are extremely considerate, caring and respectful of each other and all members of their school community. This is strongly encouraged by positive relationships with staff, firmly underpinned by strong values and well-established routines.

For the first half of the Summer Term we welcomed children of key workers to school every day as well as providing a full remote learning programme for everyone learning from home. A few creative ideas that have come from remote learning include Year 5's Asian Food Project where students made sushi and fortune cookies and Year 3's Mindfulness lessons to help navigate the new learning environment. After half term, small changes at Lyndhurst enabled each year group to return to school before breaking up for the Summer Holidays. These changes included extra hygiene measures and individually wrapped packed lunches made onsite by our chefs.
