The Lyceum educates children between the ages of 3 and 11 years. We are able to offer places in our Nursery class following your child’s third birthday. Places in Reception are offered for the year your child turns four.
All parents will be invited to meet the head and their children will spend some time in their respective classrooms being observed to ensure that the setting is the right one for them.
Parents wishing to apply for a place in Year 1 – Year 6 undergo a more formal assessment, consisting of a Maths and English paper, to determine that they will be able to access the curriculum at the correct level 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.
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 schools.
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.
