Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

The Lyceum is an independent, non-selective, co-educational day school for pupils aged 3 to 11. It was opened in 1997 and there are currently 107 pupils on roll. The school is located in a former warehouse, which has been adapted for school use. It is very close to Liverpool Street Station in the City of London. The school aims to ‘provide children with an educational atmosphere and experiences that stimulate, motivate and encourage them.’ The Lyceum has a prime location – within a short walk of Old Street and Liverpool Street stations. Good relationships with parents are maintained through daily contact, regular teacher-parent consultations, written reports and a weekly newsletter is sent to parents. Parent-teacher consultations are held once per term, and reports written annually at the end of the Summer Term. Members of staff are available at the end of the day to meet with parents.
