What says..

After winding tranquilly through woodland, the road opens out onto the astonishing prospect of the school chapel: 90 feet of soaring Victorian gothic in Sussex sandstone, crowning the rolling grassland that slopes gently down towards the coast.

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.

Married to Lydia, a psychoanalyst, with two sons, both of them pupils in the Lancing family of schools.
