The Lyceum was established in September 1997 and is a non-selective independent co-educational school.

Children from The Lyceum leave with high-level skills both academically and within the arts, creative and performing, achieved through innovative organisation and high-quality teaching.  At The Lyceum we believe that all children have the potential to achieve and excel.  We provide children with an educational atmosphere and experiences that stimulate, motivate and encourage them to achieve beyond what may be expected.  There is an unusually high level of commitment and dedication from the staff, who are dedicated to discovering and promoting children’s talents.

The Lyceum has a prime location – within a short walk of Old Street and Liverpool Street stations.  Good relationships with parents are maintained through daily contact, regular teacher-parent consultations, written reports and a weekly newsletter is sent to parents.  Parent-teacher consultations are held once per term, and reports written annually at the end of the Summer Term.  Members of staff are available at the end of the day to meet with parents.

The Lyceum has an excellent pupil/teacher ratio with small class sizes.  Class teachers are supported by well qualified and trained teaching assistants.  The school opens at 8.30am and the formal day begins at 9am.  The mornings are devoted to skills-based academic learning.  Children bring packed lunches, and after lunch each day the children have a physical activity and an arts/music/sports programme.  Formal lessons finish at 3.45pm followed by optional after-school clubs, until 5.45pm.

The Lyceum is a part of the Minerva Education Group.
