At Lyndhurst House, we firmly believe that recognising and rewarding good behaviour is more effective than sanctions against poor behaviour, and therefore take every opportunity to praise pupils when it is appropriate.
Rewards recognise and encourage positive behaviour and attainment. Boys may be awarded House Points, Commendations or Recommended Works in recognition of work that is completed to a high standard, or of behaviour that is noteworthy. In Years 5 & 6, boys can be awarded badges for industry, individual sports, citizenship and the creative arts. In the top two years, ties can be awarded for industry, sport, citizenship, the creative arts and responsibility. Each year a number of prefects are appointed from the Year 8 cohort, and they are given certain responsibilities.
The behaviour of all boys is monitored carefully by the form teacher, Head of Section, and the Headmaster. Parents will always be informed of any serious sanctions, including detentions.
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.
