The main entry to the School is into Reception in the September following a boy’s fourth birthday.
Registration may be made at any age, with the eventual offer of a place being based on an assessment and interview in the November preceding the September entry date. The assessment is to gauge a boy’s potential to follow the School’s curriculum. Candidates for entry should be of sufficient ability to be able to progress comfortably at an appropriate pace, and to benefit from the whole educational experience offered by the School.
There are a limited number of places available at seven-plus. Occasional vacancies may occur in other year groups and are subject to the appropriate entry selection requirements. In the case of the seven-plus intake, the assessment normally takes place in the January preceding the September entry date. Offers of places are made subject to the understanding that boys remain until the normal leaving age of thirteen-plus, when they take the Common Entrance, Scholarship, or other entrance exams for their next School.
There is a non-returnable Registration Fee of £100. On acceptance of a place, parents become liable for the first term’s fees and a deposit is payable. The deposit is set against the fees of a boy’s last term.
Pupils develop a high sense of self esteem, and are friendly, caring and courteous.

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.
