Whilst at Lancing students are encouraged to develop their knowledge of modern business, economics and ways in which information technology can help business to develop. Pupils are given the opportunity to visit companies and to go on work experience; the Lancing Foundation Office maintains a database of parents and former pupils willing to offer work experience and careers advice to current pupils and recent leavers. There is an annual Careers Convention every autumn at which pupils have the opportunity to talk to business people from many different industries and careers. The Head Master’s Lecture brings in leaders regularly to talk to pupils from the worlds of business, finance, arts and medicine.
Lancing is famous for many an illustrious career amongst its alumni; Evelyn Waugh, Sir David Hare, Lord Stephen Green and Professor Sir Roy Calne to name but a few. The tradition continues today with numerous young OLs following in their footsteps and making their name in different professional capacities. On these pages you can read examples of how the school has given the students of today the skills, values and confidence to leave here and achieve their goals and dreams.
