There are 925 learners at Lyndhurst Primary from Grade R to Grade 7. The school first opened in 1919 as an Afrikaans-Medium school but closed in 1990 due to dwindling numbers, and reopened in 1992 as an English-Medium school. Mr Wellington Shaw is the current headmaster of the school. The school is twinned with Bovet Primary, a school located in Alexandra, to share resources and online facilities. 90% of the learners are drawn from Alexandra and for the vast majority English is their second language and sometimes their third.
