Pupils at Lancing benefit from a genuinely all-round approach: excellent academic results are achieved within an environment where pupils are given a wide range of opportunities to explore and develop through over 100 co-curricular activities. Lancing is also highly regarded for its music and arts and our most talented pupils go on to
study at prestigious music schools. Our pupils have different gifts and personalities, Lancing’s strength is to support them in exploring their talents and making the most of them, as well as pushing them out into new ventures.

The College has ten Houses where boys and girls stay for the duration of their time at Lancing. Each House becomes a real home, a place where pupils build lifelong friendships and are cared for by a dedicated Housemaster or Housemistress. Lancing is noted for its strong and collaborative Global alumni who continue to be supportive of their former school.
