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.

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.

Lansdowne College knew what it was doing. Every …

You made taking exams fun and enjoyable, not to mention changing my study methods for the better and giving me confidence which I did not previously have. There is no doubt that without your teaching I would not have got the grades I achieved. I cannot thank you enough; as a result I have got into Kings College London.
