Joining Lancing

The different points of entry

Every year Lancing welcomes over 150 new pupils to the College. Our Admissions Team is very aware that choosing a school is one of the most important decisions a parent will make, and that the process is different for every family.

Our website will give you some real insights into Lancing. However, we feel that nothing can replace a personal visit. It is an opportunity to get under the skin of Lancing and really hear and see for yourself how we would bring out the best in your child as an all-round talented individual.
Every personal visit includes a meeting with the Head Master, House staff and some of our amazing pupils, to help you experience the special atmosphere that is Lancing.
