Lyneham High School has three well-established flagship programs which draw people to the school. 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.
A general information night for prospective year 7 parents for 2018 will be held in May. At this time there will also be information sessions regarding each of the special programs of LEAP, SEAL and Band.
Application forms will be available early in April and will be due in May. The relevant tests or try-outs will occur shortly after the information sessions.
Specific dates and a comprehensive timeline will be published as soon as the enrolment timeline is confirmed by the Education Directorate.
There is a very strong culture of music at Lyneham High School, with 470 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.
