What the school says...

Lancing College gets the best out of pupils by offering them a broad spectrum of opportunities and encouraging them to discover their own talents and reach their individual potential. Whilst avoiding the hot-housing syndrome of some schools there is a can do air about the place and the all-pervading scent of academic success. Boarding and day pupils have the same advantages, benefitting enormously from the House structure and extensive facilities, all set within the school's spectacular downland campus. Care and support are paramount and educational, practical and pastoral help are always at hand. This is a warm and happy community.

From art to alpacas (on the College farm), all interests are catered for and intellectual stimulation is enhanced by a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Lancing College is a place where individuals discover themselves, achieve success, enjoy a well-balanced life and step out into the adult world with confidence.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.





What The Good Schools Guide says

The music department is housed in standard 60s fare, but is staffed by teachers full of love for their subject and incredibly enthusiastic about sharing that love with pupils. Their scruffy studies overflow with sheet music; one, curiously, with a child's road layout mat on the floor and a dog in the corner - who's apparently won over many recruits to music. 'They are mad,' said one pupil kindly, 'but we have a great time.' Plenty of practice rooms, which only get too busy at Associated Board exam times. Drum kit handy for those who want to pop in for a jam. Glorious choir...

Special Education Needs

At Lancing College we recognise that children learn at different rates and have individual needs. Our aim is to enrich and extend the learning of all pupils in accordance with the SEN and Disability Code of Practice 2014. Members of the Learning Support Department are available to assist any pupil who has been identified as having difficulty in accessing the school curriculum. The Learning Support Coordinator works in close collaboration with House Masters/Mistresses and teaching staff to ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to develop to their full potential.
