Lynn Hannay - Director


I  have spent my entire working life in primary education - both state and independent sectors. In 1997 I co-founded The Lyceum school in Central London which offered high academic standards alongside an education rich in the performing and visual arts. The school grew out of my personal motivation to offer children a rich and vibrant educational experience as well as a good grounding in the core curriculum. I led the curriculum development at the Lyceum as well as being joint head teacher. During my time as headteacher, I chose to remain a classroom teacher, usually teaching Year 6.


I left the Lyceum in July 2014 to pursue other avenues in education and to establish myself as an independent educational consultant.

Having qualified in primary education in 1978, with dance as a particular study, I went on to teach in inner London schools where I held posts of responsibility for dance and art amongst more traditional academic curriculum areas. 

I lead conferences and INSET for serving and newly qualified teachers on the teaching of all aspects of the primary curriculum. 

I have a particular interest in teaching observational drawing as a starting point for creativity and in providing living history experiences for children and as INSET for school staff. 

I served as Chair of NAPE (The National Association of Primary Education) for four years.

I co-run creative arts residential courses for children during school holidays.
