High School

About Us

Our Mission statement is "Together to Excellence". To paraphrase Aristotle, excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.

Lytton High School was officially opened in November 1961, by the Minister for Education, Mr W. B. Tennent. In the new assembly hall, packed with pupils, parents, members of the staff, and distinguished visitors, the Minister cut a ribbon symbolising the opening of the school. Speakers included Mr L. T. Burnand, chairman of the Board of Governors, Mrs Esme Tombleson, M.P., member for the district, and Mr R. C. Parker, chairman of the Cook County Council, in whose district the school is situated.

Mr Griffiths presented a large representation of the crest to the school on the occasion of the school’s first assembly in the new assembly hall and this gift now adorns the arch above the hall stage. The crest shows a Lion Rampant and a shield divided into four quarters.
