The Lyceum comprises two sections; the Early Years Foundation Stages (EYFS) for children in Reception, and the prep school for pupils in Years 1-6. The Good Schools’ Guide commends The Lyceum School for its ‘unpretentious cheerfulness which is both attractive and impressive’. Boasting facilities such as a library, yoga studio, dining room, science and art classroom and an adjoining playground, The Lyceum School is housed in a 5-storey building, accommodating 123 students. It is located in the middle of Shoreditch, near both Old Street and Liverpool Street stations, and the school takes advantage of this; taking trips to the theatre, hosting lessons in local museums and touring the Royal Parks. 

The Reception class progresses through the EYFS curriculum, which The Lyceum links to more creative themes like Animals, Dinosaurs and Space, to bring learning to life for the children. The curriculum is further enriched throughout the week with Spanish, Music PE/Dance lessons, and Yoga. Admission entails a meeting between the parents and the head, with children spending some time in their respective classroom (under observation) to see their compatibility. There are full-time support staff members in the Reception year. 

The Lyceum Prep School is based on the National Curriculum, and aims to provide a broad and holistic topic approach to education. There is a strong focus on English and Mathematics. In keeping with their holistic topic approach, subjects are expanded upon using reading, writing, speaking, listening and ICT methods. There is a strong concentration on the arts, with a full-time music teacher, at least one large production each term, and several musical ensembles; as well as singing and learning the recorder, many children learn at least one or two musical instruments. 

Two scholarships are available for entry into Year 3 (7+); one academic, and one in the creative arts. Leavers of the 2022/23 cohort have received offers from St Paul’s Cathedral School, James Allen’s Girls’ School and Queen’s College, alongside scholarship offers for Francis Holland, Forest, and Portland Place.
