Special Programs

Lyneham High School has three well-established flagship programs. These are the award winning band and music program, the Lyneham Enriched Academic Program (LEAP) for gifted and talented students and the Sporting Excellence at Lyneham (SEAL) program for talented sports students. These highly successful programs help to create a culture where achievement is celebrated and where students can work together with a strong sense of pride in their school.

2021 Application for Band, LEAP and SEAL

Applications for the 2021 special programs will open after initial enrolment offers have been made. An invitation to apply will be sent to all students receiving an offer of enrolment to Lyneham High for year 7 2021. We expect this to be in early August 2020. Invitations to apply will not be extended to students who do not have an enrolment offer at Lyneham High.

Existing students at the school wishing to be considered for one or more of the programs should contact the relevant program coordinator.


Band Program

There is a very strong culture of music at Lyneham High School, with over 500 students enrolled in the Band Program, 120 students in the Musical Theatre Program and a total of 750 students participating in music activities and classes. The Lyneham High School bands are very active in the community, with performances at numerous workshops, festivals and Eisteddfods, as well as school, community and charity events.

The Sporting Excellence at Lyneham program for talented sports students, known as SEAL, provides the opportunity for students to achieve academically while continuing their commitment to their chosen team and/or individual sport.
