Beware that The Lyceum has been bought out by Equity firm.
Lots of staff have walked. They're now on their second head. This one's
an interim head. The ethos is dying as the money men squeeze the
parents dry. Very sad.
I'm a parent and I'm not happy.

What's the Lyceum? A theatre?

Given the topic, it's probably the London prep school.

Not great to be changing schools at the start of a year, but there might be some movement. Are you able to start hunting for a school that would suit you better?

@RedFleur123 we just moved to N5 and are looking into schools for reception 2016 (and I am a bit stressed about it). Has it gotten any better for you in the last two months? Thanks.

The company in question is Minerva Education Ltd. They have bought a number of schools. You should look at this thread

Lots of improvement needed. The ethos has changed.
The two form entry is a bad mistake.
