School profile

Lyndon School

Lyndon school is a large comprehensive secondary academy in Solihull. It is part of Summit Learning Trust and serves a cohort of approximately 1200 pupils from Years 7- 11. In March 2022 Ofsted described Lyndon school as a happy, friendly and caring place. Although the school primarily serves the Elmdon and Lyndon Wards within Solihull, it has, over recent years, become increasingly popular with students drawn from Birmingham.

At the heart of Lyndon’s improvement strategy is an unequivocal commitment to becoming a first class educational institution that prepares young people to face and successfully overcome the challenges of the 21st century.

Our vision at Lyndon School is to develop well-rounded confident and responsible individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential. Through the delivery of an ambitious, inclusive and knowledge rich curriculum we will tackle social disadvantage and ensure that all students possess the knowledge, skills and cultural capital they will need to live successful and happy lives within our diverse community. Our values of success through endeavour, ambition through challenge and strength through diversity are at the heart of our ethos.

About our school experience

Taking part in a school experience day provides you with an excellent opportunity to gain an insight into the day to day school life. Whether you are at the application stage, or preparing for interview, the time spent in school on this day will allow you to see great teaching and learning in action, and also give you the chance to talk to School Based Trainers, current trainees following our programme, and members of the South Birmingham SCITT team about the course and the year ahead. Combining lesson observations with workshops on the teacher training process will provide you with everything you need in taking the next step on your journey in becoming a teacher.
