What influence has Lancing College had on your life?

Lancing not only encouraged me to focus on my studies, but also to enjoy doing extra-curricular activities. Lancing has given me the ability to confidently approach people in different year groups.

Which hobbies or interests did you pick up during your time at Lancing?

I enjoyed a range of sports – I especially miss those runs we used to do on the beautiful hills! 

Are you still in touch with people you met at Lancing?

Yes, I try to meet them regularly for dinner. We're all from Field's House! As full boarders, we formed a strong bond which has continued through into our adult lives. 

What advice would you give to a new pupil who is about to start at Lancing?

Enjoy studying at a place like Lancing while you can! Make the most of the beautiful architecture, the lovely church services, the talented teachers and the great range of sport facilities.
