Life at Lansdowne need not be just about studying and there is a full programme of events and extra-curricular activities throughout the year.
There is the Lansdowne Activity Programme that runs throughout the first term for the GCSE and Lower Sixth students and the Activity Week that the academic year joyously culminates in.
Lansdowne Activity Programme
The Lansdowne Activity Programme is an integral part of the Lower Sixth and GCSE timetable. It takes place on a Friday afternoon in the first term of the academic year.
These 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 destinations for these Friday afternoon outings might include the National Gallery, the Museum of London, the Natural History Museum, the Tate Modern, the Imperial War Museum, the Tower of London, the Science Museum and The Globe Theatre.
These visits will occasionally be interspersed with more frivolous excursions, such as ten-pin bowling, ice-skating or a visit to the BBC building.
