All boys attend Assembly with their class. It is an important part of the School day. There are items of School and other news mentioned, and much of the School's normal, ethical and philosophical teaching takes place, by way of stories, examples from history and famous lives, poetry, etc. It is an occasion for reinforcing positive community values and individual attributes, for celebrating successes and individual achievements, and for emphasising core qualities such as honesty, unselfishness, determination, self-discipline, initiative and so on. Pupils often participate in the Assembly.
The Pre-Prep have their own assemblies each day except on Friday. Years 3 to 8 have full main-school assemblies on Mondays (with the Headmaster) and Wednesdays. On Tuesdays, Years 3 to 5 have their own assembly, while Years 6 to 8 have a form lesson; on Thursdays the situation is reversed. On Fridays, the whole School (including the Pre-Prep) gather for a "Merit Assembly" in which the pupils' achievements are celebrated by means of issuing awards and commendations, etc.
The personal development of the pupils is excellent, fostered by the warm, family atmosphere of the school ...

For the second year running, Years 6, 7 and 8 competed in the Vocab Express Global Challenge. Once again, it was a fiercely fought out contest with double the amount of schools from around the world all competing for top spots. Vocab Express allows pupils to learn Common Entrance vocabulary whilst completing a range of games; they cannot move to the next level until the vocabulary is memorised! Overall, Lyndhurst gained a commendable 11th place with a number of international and senior schools taking the top spots. In both Latin and Greek, we achieved an impressive fourth position.
