Sixth Formers to benefit from new University Ambassador Programme

The school has an ongoing programme to support pupils in their next steps after leaving Lancing. For many this may be a course in a university in the UK or overseas, a degree apprenticeship, or perhaps a straight move into the world of work. Our role at the College is to ensure that Sixth Form pupils are able to explore all options and, with the support of expert guidance, be better informed to make the right choices. From September 2019 Sixth Form pupils will benefit from a new programme which will put them directly in contact with Lancing ambassadors at some of the leading UK universities. The programme aims to help our Upper Sixth pupils not only to consider their options upon leaving Lancing, but also be supported as they settle into university life. Ambassadors will hold talks at Lancing once a year, and will be helpful points of contact during the UCAS application process and upon arrival at university. We are extremely grateful to those OLs who have volunteered to take on this role. Their experience will be highly valuable as our pupils make the all-important choices as they prepare to leave Lancing, and will undoubtedly ease their transition into university life.
