At Lansdowne College our goal is to ignite an enthusiasm for learning in our students and a desire to succeed that inspires them to excel, both in their studies with us and in their future degrees at university.
We recognise that in order for each of our students to realise their full academic potential, we must inspire them through expert and challenging tuition, delivered by passionate, experienced teachers in small, collaborative and engaging classes. Through this potent combination, our outstanding college enables each one of our students to achieve their best.
Our college provides an energetic and challenging environment in which students are expected to fulfil or exceed their own expectations, based on a rediscovery of the power and joy of learning. Our students receive tuition of a uniformly high quality, which equips them with the self-confidence, knowledge and skills to succeed.
We teach a broad range of different subjects at both A-Level and IGCSE, which can be studied on courses of different lengths. We pride ourselves on having an extremely flexible timetable which can accommodate the learning journeys of all our students and allows any combination of subjects to be studied. Each student is treated individually and can have a tailor-made study programme devised specifically for them.
The infectious enthusiasm of our staff shows students that education is exciting and rewarding. Teachers set targets which are demanding yet realistic, so students feel that teachers are on their side, and the targets feel like less of an imposition and more of an opportunity to develop, en route to success. Our teaching philosophy is to light a fire in our students, which will burn for the rest of their lives.
Lansdowne College’s staff are specialists in the A-Level and IGCSE subjects they teach. Many hold postgraduate qualifications and are experienced examiners. Our teachers are committed and passionate, and have an in-depth understanding of the strategies and techniques students require to achieve success. Our staff are adept at identifying study areas requiring increased focus, as well as maximising students’ strengths, and consequently help their students consistently achieve outstanding examination results.
