About Lyndhurst

Lyndhurst School was built in the early Twentieth Century and catered for both senior boys and girls. When the British education system was re-organised in 1975, a middle school was established and the building became home to Lyndhurst Middle School, catering for boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 12.

On the 1st January 1994 the school was incorporated as a self – governing Grant Maintained School and in September of that year the school changed character to become Lyndhurst Grant Maintained Junior School, catering for pupils between the ages of 7 and 11. Most recently, in April 2013, the school changed once more and re-opened as Lyndhurst Junior School (Academy).
