The pupils are friendly, caring and courteous, and take an obvious pride in their own achievements and in those of others.

Congratulations to all of our Year 8 boys who have successfully passed their Common Entrance exams with some very impressive grades. They are all safely into their chosen senior schools:.City of London, Haileybury, King Edward's School Bath, Mill Hill, North Bridge House Canonbury, Teddington School, and Westminster.
From Wednesday 7th March to Tuesday 13th March the School will be competing in the Vocab Express Global Challenge against other schools from around the world. The programme is an excellent way to learn vocabulary and grammar for Common Entrance and Scholarship in French, Latin and Greek. All boys in Years 5-8 have usernames and passwords and can participate at home. Let's try and beat our impressive second place in the World Piccolo Cup in 2016!
Hawkins were this week's winners, and they are in 2nd place overall with 6,123 behind Grenville who have 6.512 but ahead of Drake who have 5,506.
A decision over whether the school will be open tomorrow morning is unlikely to be made until tomorrow morning - at which point we will let you know as early as we can, and in any case by 7.30. If you do not hear anything then you can assume that the School is open as normal. If there is snow on the pavements and roads, please take care, especially on local roads, and avoid driving up or down Lyndhurst Gardens.
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.
For the first time this term, Grenville have taken the overall lead with 8995, ahead of Hawkins with 8950 and Drake with 8945. The combined total of 26,890 is steadily approaching the target for the term of 35.000.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the start of next term on Thursday 3rd September.
Well done to everyone who was involved in the two Sports Days earlier this week.
Pre-Prep held their Sports Day last Tuesday afternoon on Hampstead Heath.
We had been watching the weather anxiously for days. Would we be facing 32˚ of heat? Would we be dodging severe thunderstorms? Would the ground be soggy or dry? All options were considered and plans made. As it happened the day was warm and cloudy, the ground dry enough to sit on, and the forecast promised it would stay that way.
