What influence has Lancing College had on your life?

Lancing has enabled me to look beyond what I thought was possible.

Shooting, sailing, tennis, rugby and cross-country.

Are you still in touch with people you met at Lancing?

Yes, I am still in touch with many of the former pupils I grew up with. I moved to New York with my work and found that there is an excellent Lancing network around the world. It is always nice to have a touch of terra firma as a result of the international boarding experience.

I’ve joined previous OL society and young OL drinks. It’s always a great way to catch up with old friends.

What advice would you give to a new pupil who is about to start at Lancing?

Do everything that is offered to you and more. This is a place you will never forget. You may not think you have enough time to do everything, but you do!
