Lyndon Preparatory School

Every school has its own character and individuality and I invite you to browse our website to discern the intrinsic worth of Lyndon Preparatory School, a caring, compassionate and self-disciplined environment which encourages boys and girls (boarders and day pupils) to achieve their potential and learn to serve their community.

Set on a hillside overlooking the sea, the School enjoys a superb setting for the development and growth of its pupils; state of the art facilities for creative and sporting activities and a challenging academic curriculum encourages all pupils to develop their talents to the full.

Our wonderful, smiling, innocent and enthusiastic young boys and girls learn through experience and play. Lyndon Preparatory School is a school where children learn that it is just as important and sometimes much more interesting to colour outside the lines; where children learn how to learn rather than what to learn; where children learn that showing kindness and consideration for others is a sign of strength of character and not a weakness.

I hope you will be able to pay a personal visit to our School; our staff and pupils look forward to welcoming you.

Paul Bendall


At Lyndon Preparatory, we are always very happy to meet prospective parents and pupils and would be delighted to show you around our School. We warmly invite you to contact the School and make an appointment.

A Brief History

The HistoryRydal Penrhos began its history in the last century. Rydal School was founded in 1885 by Thomas Osborn as a boy’s boarding school in the Methodist tradition. Penrhos College had been founded five years earlier, in 1880, by Thomas Payne as a girls boarding school, coincidentally also in the Methodist tradition.

In 1999, the two schools merged into a single organisation called Rydal Penrhos. The School was last inspected in March 2001 by ISI.

A £3 million development programme was instigated providing a new Library Resource Centre, a Sports Hall, a flood lit astroturf pitch, new Biology laboratories and numerous minor building alterations, and most recently a new Dining Hall.

Lyndon PrepLyndon Preparatory School, the junior division of Rydal Penrhos, is on a neighbouring site and offers co-education from age 2 ½ years to 11 years. Links between the Preparatory School and the Senior School are strong. Both Schools have a Christian ethos with Chapel and prayers held daily – there is also a School Chaplain.

The Senior School is also co-educational from the age of 11 years to 18 years. Educational initiatives and development are always at the forefront of the School’s development planning; within the curriculum, the School offers a wide range of subjects at Key Stage 3, GCSE, AS and A Level.  The International Baccalaureate was introduced in September 2004.

Pastorally, the School is divided into four houses and tutor groups within each year and pupils remain in their pastoral house through to the Sixth Form. Most teaching staff act as form tutors – tutor groups comprise both day and boarding pupils. The boarding houses are run by Houseparents, all but one of whom teaches within the School. There are seven boarding houses which are structured within age groups, with separate Sixth Form houses.  Contributions to the boarding community are required by teaching staff. Heads of Middle and Lower school, together with tutors, oversee discipline, academic progress and overall pupil development; there is also a separate Head of Sixth Form.

The Senior School now numbers around 460 with an additional 250 in the Preparatory and Pre-Preparatory School. There are around 180 boaders spread across the seven boarding houses.

The School is a member of SHMIS (Society of Heads of Independent Schools), HMC (Headmasters and Headmistresses Conference) and IAPS (Independent Association of Prep Schools).
