Parental Involvement

Parental Involvement

The Lyndhurst House parent body is very positive and friendly and the School works in close partnership with parents.

Parents are always welcome to contact the School to raise any matters they wish to discuss. The first point of contact will normally be the Class Teacher, who may refer them to the Subject Teacher or, if appropriate, to the Headmaster.

The Headmaster regularly meets parents at events at the School and is always glad to see parents over individual issues if they wish.

General information about the School is conveyed to parents by a weekly Newsletter, "The Bulletin" and by other communications from time to time.

Individual information about each boy is contained in termly reports and half-termly Grades.

There are regular Parents' Evenings for each year group so parents can discuss their son's progress directly with teachers. Appointments at other times can easily be made through the School Office.

Parents are encouraged to attend School matches, plays and concerts, in which their sons take part.

In accepting a place at Lyndhurst House, parents agree to accept the School's aims and ethos, subscribe to the School's values, and uphold its requirements of attendance and its rules.

Friends of Lyndhurst

An informal Parents' Association exists. The aims of the Friends of Lyndhurst are as follows:

  • To encourage social interaction between parents
  • To help with fund-raising for the School's chosen charities
  • To assist the School in communications and to encourage a strong flow of ideas
  • To assist the School with second-hand uniform.

Pupils develop a good knowledge of their own and other cultures and traditions.

Vocab Express Global Challenge

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.
