The Lyceum educates children between the ages of 3 and 11 years. We are able to offer places in our Early Years department at any time – All parents will be invited to meet the head and their children will spend some time in the nursery or reception classes to ensure that the setting is the right one for them. However, where a parent indicates that their child may have a special need or medical or behavioural condition, then the child will have an assessment based on observation and reports from previous carers and other agencies.
Parents wishing to apply for a place in other parts of the school undergo an assessment to determine that they will be able to access the curriculum and have a sufficient standard of reading, communication and social skills to allow a successful transition into the school.
The school makes the final decision about entrance and children from all backgrounds are welcome. We do not stream our intake.
The school has a small number of clear rules which parents accept by signing their terms and conditions. There is a clear emphasis on traditional manners and good behaviour is expected at all times. Pupils who are disruptive may be asked to leave the school. The school has a Behaviour Policy that can be viewed on request.
Prior to entry, parents need to read and complete the application form carefully and note that there is a non-refundable registration fee. A non-refundable deposit is required to secure the offer of a place.
