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 received a lot of positive help and support from the teachers at Lansdowne College, especially from my Chemistry teacher Andy Homer. Lansdowne College helped me to achieve my academic potential, achieving an A* in Maths.

After two gruelling hours trying to log on to UCAS, I saw the word “unsuccessful” by my name. I needed three A grades to read history at Leeds. I hadn’t got them, and I hadn’t got my place. My school advised me to find a place through UCAS’ Clearing, swallow my pride, and go to any university that would accept me. I refused, and in a state of denial, left it to my mother to enrol me in a school to retake my exams. My confidence was at rock bottom.
