An independent sixth form college renowned for its support for students and excellent results.

At Lansdowne College we aim to instil a love in learning in our students and prepare them for life beyond school. We take time to understand what motivates them and believe that all students should be encouraged to excel.


Our comprehensive range of A-level, GCSE and Foundation courses, and expert teaching, provides students with the best possible learning environment. Most students join us straight from GCSEs for a two year A-level course, and 95% of Lansdowne students go to university. We achieve this by combining expert teachers, small class sizes and extra-curricular support.

We actively encourage our students to pursue their own interests, inside and outside of the curriculum. Each student has an individual timetable specifically designed to meet their academic needs and our teachers help them manage their time and to prioritise, giving them the self-confidence and independence required at university and beyond.

Lansdowne offers a lively and diverse extra-curricular programme that is often pupil-led. This ranges from the Duke of Edinburgh awards, outdoor pursuits like football and rugby, debating, photography, drama, table tennis, rock climbing and street dance.

I achieved AAB in my A-Levels and will be studying Pharmacy at Durham University.

I joined Lansdowne College in Year 13 and after the disappointment of not reaching my full potential in the previous year, Lansdowne gave me the opportunity to double my confidence and achieve even better than I originally expected. I was really pleased to improve on my previous Chemistry grade from a D to an A. This is down to lots of good exam practice which prepared me for the final examination. The teachers h…

I’d like to thank Lansdowne College, in particular Richard Howarth, for the work you put in and the help you gave me as I couldn’t be happier with Economics mark. I also got an A* in Maths, so am able to go to Bristol to do Economics and feel I am a much more able Economist.
