Student Life


The Glenlyn Academy prides itself on creating a friendly atmosphere that provides a high standard of training to challenge all students.

All students are taught in a relaxed and professionally disciplined environment with students attending classes throughout the week, and at weekends. Specialist workshops and rehearsals are also held in addition to timetabled classes. Technical classes are organised so that students of the same standard may train together, even if they are in different academic years.

Glenlyn Academy students and parents receive a corporate discount membership for the local leisure centre (at Glenlyn Academy Sydenham) which includes a gym, swimming pool, and fitness studio.

Glenlyn Academy places great importance on the pastoral care of its students. Overseen by the Principal, the Academy provides student support and advice in many practical areas; training, education and career development, welfare and related issues. Students and their parents may have private meetings with the Principal, Vice-Principal, Pastoral Liaison Officer or class tutors on request.
