About the School

As a well-regarded co-educational boarding school, Lancing has a strong tradition in welcoming pupils with parents living all over the world; this school celebrates the diversity and strength that over 40 nationalities bring to the school community. Set in the beautiful South Downs National Park, the College is situated just 10 miles from the vibrant city of Brighton and Hove, sharing rapid connections with London and Gatwick and Heathrow Airports.

Lancing College supports and challenges the brightest academics and encourages the development of the whole person, be that in music, sport, the arts, or a multitude of other areas. When pupils leave Lancing, they are happy, confident young adults, self-aware and with a real sense of their place as global citizens. Friendships made at Lancing last a lifetime.

Lancing is a dynamic, creative place, underpinned by Christian values. Pupils in the Sixth Form receive extensive help in considering university options and careers, and tutors work with them from an early stage to give personal support and advice. In 2020 our top destination universities are Oxford University, Cambridge University, Bristol, Durham, Leeds, UCL, Cardiff, Leeds, Imperial College and Exeter.

Staff and Student Quotes

“A Lancing education is a treasure for life, one that is much more than the sum of its parts. At the heart of what we offer lies our value of each individual pupil as a unique person. At Lancing we guide young people to become dynamic, adventurous, thoughtful and caring individuals. They leave us knowing themselves and how to navigate the incredible journey of their life beyond school.’ At Lancing we nourish the mind and nurture a love of learning – our students are inspired to explore, challenge and build on current knowledge.

Our academic results are excellent, but we place the highest premium on self-expression and independent thought: Lancing students challenge formulaic thinking with precision, imagination, and wit.

Lancing offers the overseas boarders a “home away from home” where they can be part of a friendly and supportive community.”


Mr. Dominic Oliver

“Lancing offered me the time and capacity to identify goals and lay out a plan for my future. The people around me, my teachers, and friends provided great support during my time away from home.”
