Our vision is ensure that John Lyon School continues to go from strength to strength delivering an outstanding academic and pastoral education and to honor the memory of our founder, John Lyon, whose generosity and foresight paved the way for a tradition of giving that has shaped the School that exists today.
Your support will directly help to provide life changing opportunities to pupils either through broadening horizons with excellent projects or transforming the lives of those who see an independent school education as out of their reach.
The provision of Bursaries enriches our School, raises academic standards and expands the educational opportunity for children from a wide range of social backgrounds. We offer talented children transformational opportunities with an excellent education full of breadth and experience to fulfill their potential and prepare them to thrive in society.
Donating to support Bursaries means we can provide more opportunities through open access to those whose potential is far greater than their financial means. Join us in our mission to preserve the rich philanthropic tradition of founder John Lyon and be a part of transforming a life today.
The 1876 Fund
Donating to support the 1876 Fund through regular donations makes it possible to support exciting opportunities beyond the standard curriculum and departmental budgets. These projects enrich learning with an immediate and direct impact to pupils that will stay with them for a lifetime.
Our next project is to provide a state of the art Cricket Net facility at Sudbury as part of the Sports programme offering the opportunity to train all year round.
Every gift makes a difference - by giving in numbers we can make an even bigger difference!
Cricket has been played at the School for over 130 years and is still one of the strongest sports offered at John Lyon. This summer John Lyon plans to install a state-of-the-art cricket nets facility at Sudbury with the potential of an all-purpose flooring so it can have multiple use across other sports as well.
The provision of a purpose-built cricket net facility is the next step in furthering excellence for the Sports offered at John Lyon. It will enable greater opportunities for pupils’ training and development which will facilitate the historical sporting success to date. We will be able to offer more pre-season training potentially not just for cricket but other sports as well.
