The 1876 Fund

1876 is the date John Lyon School officially opened in the Old Building. The 1876 Fund commemorates that date through enabling projects in the School that extend pupils beyond the curriculum.
Don't ask how it works!

The 1876 Fund is a regular giving programme allowing parents and Old Lyonians to support opportunities beyond the standard curriculum with a modest monthly payment.  The aim of the fund is to provide resources to enrich learning experiences with an immediate and direct impact on pupils that will stay with them for a lifetime.

So far, we have enabled many projects through the fund, for example, professional public speaking coaching for the TEDxJohnLyonSchool event, hosted at John Lyon in 2019 (see highlights of the evening below), and robotics equipment (pictured above).

We ask parents and OLs to consider giving £18.76 a month to the fund.  Click here to donate or here to discuss your ideas further.
