TRUST, RESPECT, SUCCESS Lyndon is uniquely placed to offer a positive, caring and exciting secondary education for young people within our community. So, what makes Lyndon unique? We are a Trust school that is very different to other schools because Lyndon enjoys the direct influence and close working relationship with a number of key Trust Partners. Many of these organisations offer extensive curriculum opportunities, professional mentoring for students and career pathways to ensure our students are lifelong learners.

Our comprehensive transition and transfer programme includes shadowing and induction days, plus visits from the Year 7 team to every child in their Primary school. The start in September is carefully planned to ensure that the first few weeks hold no worries, with all queries dealt with prior to starting and an ongoing, supportive pastoral care system.
