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 just wanted to thank Richard Howarth. Your teaching helped me massively in obtaining the grades that I wanted. I achieved 100% in AS-level Economics and 88% in A-level Economics – a huge improvement! I am extremely happy with my results and to have met the requirements of my offers.
