A number of the pages he had taken out of the book and kept were destroyed at a later date in an accident involving chemicals.
Other sheets he gave away but these pages are some of the few that have survived.
The sheets have been authenticated by Lennon's close school friend, Pete Shotton, who wrote a book John Lennon: In My Life.
Peter Beech, who was Lennon's general science teacher at the time, said: "The sheet is typical of John Lennon, he was an extremely cheeky boy.
"He did, however, know his limits. In the classroom, if you settled John down, you generally settled the class down.
"His chemistry teacher Eric Oldman said that John could actually go far."
Lennon was shot dead aged 40 outside his New York apartment on 8 December 1980 by Mark Chapman.
