This year nine highly talented Lancing students have received much sought-after offers to study at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, including two prestigious choral scholarships to Merton and Keble Colleges, Oxford. This achievement at the most intellectually challenging level reinforces Lancing’s year-in-year-out success in preparing students for the most sharply competitive, academically rigorous demands of Oxbridge entrance.
There is outstanding depth of individual talent at Lancing in the very toughest academic disciplines, right across the Humanities and Sciences, from Modern Languages, Music, English and History to Law, Maths, Medicine and Engineering. It also complements the impressive, longstanding track record of Lancing students in securing top flight offers to study at the country’s most high-ranking Medical Schools and Music Conservatoires, as well as the very best universities in the US, Canada and Europe.
Above all and central to Lancing’s Oxbridge success lies its unwavering commitment to first class, inspiring teaching. Our reaching out far beyond the classroom is individually tailored to nurture the independence of thought, intellectual flair and academic rigour essential to Oxbridge achievement.
