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.

The teachers’ enthusiasm in their subjects is inspiring, and that in turn inspired me and made it easier to enjoy the subjects I studied. My Personal Tutor and English Teacher were a great help to me during the university application process. The facilities at Lansdowne College are great and I felt I had everything I needed. My subject teachers were also a constant source of support during the stressful exam period. Overall, I’d say my experience at Lansdowne College has been fantastic. My top t…

Thank you Tim Maher for all the energy put into our English class last year, you were absolutely brilliant with the coursework and all of your help did not go unappreciated, and I know that the other students feel the same. I couldn’t be happier with my result, and did not expect (or deserve) the grade that I got, but I know that I couldn’t have done it without you!
