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.

Meet our Students


I will be attending the University of Exeter to study Business and Management.

I got every kind of support I needed from the teachers at Lansdowne College. My Personal Tutor was always on hand to provide advice when I was stressed with exams and offered targeted and useful advice for my personal statement. I had a good two years at Lansdowne College and I have made wonderful friends. My top tip to future students is to study hard and remember that nothing is impossible.

Thank you so so so much for making this the happiest, most enjoyable year of my life so far. Lansdowne was the best decision I ever made.
