An independent sixth form college renowned for its relaxed atmosphere 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 achieve the best possible results. Come and meet us and let us inspire you too.


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 encouraged 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 ranging from the Duke of Edinburgh awards, outdoor pursuits like football and rugby, debating, photography, drama, table tennis, rock climbing and street dance.
