Because we believe it is important to achieve a balance between work and constructive and stimulating play, we provide a diverse range of clubs, societies and more for sixth formers at Lansdowne College to help produce rounded, confident individuals.
Alongside academic study, Lansdowne College offers a variety of hotly anticipated social events, such as the Summer Ball, Student Council, societies, clubs, activity programmes, ski trips, Duke of Edinburgh scheme and a wide array of sports. Our student body changes each year which influences, through the Student Council, the range of activities and topical opportunities our students are interested in and want to engage in.
Excursions augment and enhance subject tuition, raising students’ cultural and scientific awareness as well as their understanding of the city and country in which they study. Typical local destinations for outings might include London’s key museums and unique points of interest. These visits are interspersed with recreational excursions and activities, such as field trips throughout the UK and overseas, tenpin bowling, ice-skating, kick-boxing and treasure hunts in London.
Sport is an integral part of Lansdowne College life and contributes significantly to the holistic environment we offer. Students participate in a range of team and individual sports which aid their personal development during their time with us. The students are also encouraged to try new activities to broaden their horizons, with options as diverse as yoga and rock climbing.
Clubs and Societies
Lansdowne staff members and the Student Council manage a wide, and changing, range of student clubs and societies. The Debating Society involves teams exploring historical and contemporary moral, philosophical and political issues. The Economics Society looks into topical issues facing the global economic community and is a forum for analysis and discussion on the policies and measures taken to address them. The college magazine provides an opportunity for budding journalists to practise their writing and editing skills and report on events and issues that are relevant and of interest to our students.
Community Activities, Guest Speakers and Work Experience
Our students are encouraged to be aware of, and engage with, the wider community. Every year our students raise money for charities of their choice. We welcome external guest speakers, practising professionals and academics to enrich our students’ understanding of further study and careers available to them. We assist our students in identifying, apply for and engaging in relevant work experience opportunities, career masterclasses and insight days.
