A place of scholarship where pupils learn with integrity.
The Lancing College campus covers some 550 acres of the South Downs National Park. It is situated just 10 miles from the vibrant city of Brighton and Hove, and shares rapid connections with Gatwick Airport and London. It offers a unique combination of heritage and British tradition infused with a modern, cosmopolitan, outward-looking approach.
With some 600 pupils, our vibrant school offers plenty of opportunity for fun and friendship, alongside a strong sense of community where everyone has their place and is well known. The Lancing ethos cultivates responsible, sociable and considerate young people, promoting confidence and self-reliance in a lively and enjoyable environment.
Lancing seeks to offer academic excellence, inspiration and enrichment for every pupil; this approach means that we take time to value each individual and to give them space to grow, supported and encouraged as they develop. We teach our students to be curious and to think deeply, for themselves and for the right reasons, underpinned by the essential attributes of learning. Our school is not an exam factory and our teachers take delight in going far beyond teaching to the test.
Pastoral care is taken very seriously at Lancing, and all our staff provide support for pupils. Housemasters and Housemistresses, alongside their supporting, teams play a vital role in making the Houses homely. Our ten Houses are where firm friendships are forged, lasting throughout school and beyond.
Learning beyond the classroom is also important at Lancing. The College offers over 120 different co-curricular activities, including academic societies, enrichment, drama, music, art, sport, design & technology, and dance. The College Farm is a great asset for our pupils, and an ideal place to learn with ‘hands on’ activities combined with classroom learning. The syllabus for Biology students is especially relevant to the work of the Farm – a connection which is supported by the Head of Department. The Equestrian Centre, opened in 2017, offers plenty of opportunities for pupils interested in riding as well as stable management and BHS examination training. The Centre also provides an additional and valuable resource for pupils considering careers in biology, veterinary sciences and ecology. Whilst some pupils focus on developing existing skills, many others are encouraged to try and experience new things they would never have previously considered. These experiences travel with them long after they leave school.
Lancing has a strong and rich heritage across the Performing Arts and counts many well-known names in its alumni. The school welcomes and actively encourages involvement from all pupils, from beginners to those pupils wanting to develop and hone their skills.
Sport is very popular at the College, with specific slots of the weekly timetable allocated to various disciplines. All pupils are encouraged to compete to the best of their ability, from school competitions to national level, or simply recreationally.
