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

At Lansdowne 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, take care of them and their parents, and believe that all students should be encouraged to excel. We are convinced that we can inspire every student to achieve the best possible results.


Our comprehensive range of A-level, GCSE and Foundation courses and expert teaching provides them with the best possible learning environment. Most students join us straight from GCSE’s 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…

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!
