Lansdowne College is a co-educational independent sixth form college situated in London, which specialises in preparing students to pass AS and A Levels to gain entry into a British university of their choice.
Students can choose from a full curriculum of twenty-nine A Level subjects, which averages at about twenty hours of classroom study and learning per week.
The school recently launched the Oxbridge Programme which helps students prepare for the demands of entry into Oxbridge universities, and provides guest speakers from Cambridge and Oxford, annual conferences and how the process of acceptance works.
Lansdowne also offers several medical programmes built especially for students wishing to pursue a career in medicine in the UK and beyond.
Entry to Lansdowne requires an English test for international students, which might result in the tested student enrolling on a 1-2 term time course to help them improve and develop before they embark on their academic courses.
For students under the age of 18 they are accommodated at Princess Beatrice House in Earl’s Court. For senior students they are accommodated in Pure Hammersmith.
The facilities in both houses are outstanding, and include single or twin rooms, laundry facilities, internet access throughout, and each room has en suite bathrooms and televisions.
In the Pure Hammersmith house they have an onsite gym and cinema. Both houses have their own catering staff that provides three meals a day, with an alternating menu which caters for students with specific dietary requirements.
Both houses are in central London, and therefore have the advantage of being at the centre of the London transport network.
The college organises a lot of trips and excursions in and out of the capital city, with museums, art galleries, historic buildings/sites and theatres being the most popular.
There are also excursions based around such activities as ten-pin bowling, rock-climbing, kick-boxing, and visits to various BBC establishments.
