Lydgate Infant School


We enjoy meeting the many visitors who come to our school to have a look around.Tours take place each Thursday morning during term time, when you can come and meet the Headteacher and be shown around the school by a dedicated member of staff/parent. It is a great opportunity to see our lovely school for yourself, and to take a peek into each classroom.

If you are interested in a visit, please contact the office on 020 8874 6904 where details on enrolling in our school are also available.We look forward to meeting you!
