What the Good Schools Guide says...

Solid, sound and sensible. Deserves to be far better known. It's tucked into a winding road on the Harrow hill, still reminiscent of the quiet leafy village this must have been. Harrow School dominates the hill and its fields and structures abut John Lyon, but this is a happy brotherly co-existence, and the cadet school benefits in many ways from the senior.

What the school says...

The John Lyon School is a successful and well regarded independent HMC boys’ school situated in Harrow on the Hill. We are approximately twelve miles from the centre of London. The School is easily accessible from two nearby underground stations and is also served by a number of local bus routes.
The School was founded in 1876 by John Lyon, a wealthy Elizabethan farmer. Today the Harrow Foundation comprises of Harrow School, The John Lyon School, Harrow International Schools and John Lyon’s Charity.
The original buildings have been greatly augmented over the years, most recently with a multi-million pound development of a new Science wing, second Drama Studio and new Fitness Suite. A series of planned projects will further enhance the quality of facilities at the School. The general standard of teaching accommodation is excellent, with subjects taught in clustered classrooms. Departments are well resourced including interactive whiteboards and dedicated office space. We have a sports centre on the main site, which includes an excellent swimming pool, and our 25 acre sports ground, Sudbury, is just a few minutes away.
The School aims to give an all-round education, developing every boy to his maximum potential in a happy and caring environment. The emphasis is not only on high academic achievement but also on musical, artistic and creative skills, together with sport and extra-curricular activities. Pupils join us principally from schools in the London boroughs of Harrow, Hillingdon, Ealing and Brent, but a good number travel from much further afield.
