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.
