A Level Selection

Changes to the Lancing Week were implemented in 2016 to optimise the effectiveness of the school day at Lancing and to make the best of the teaching and learning opportunities of our pupils.

Our specialist Sixth Form staff and tutors work with pupils individually during the Fifth Form to start to consider A Level options, these are finalised after GCSEs. Lancing encourages pupils to choose four subject options at A Level, with/without an Extended Project Qualification.

Pupils in the Sixth Form are well-served by knowledgeable teachers who have high expectations and an infectious enthusiasm for their subjects. Results at A Level in 2016 indicate pupils make excellent progress, with over half of grades achieved at A* or A.
