Success for Lancing College students

TWO students from Lancing College earned five A* grades in their A-levels this year, both securing places at top universities.

These results came as part of the historic college’s bumper haul of top grades, of which more than half were A*s or As.

Hugh Ryan, 18, of Batts Lane, Pulborough, got A*s in maths, further maths, additional further maths, physics and chemistry and will study natural sciences at Trinity College, Cambridge.

Hugh was denied a scholarship to Guildford’s Royal Grammar School but got a place at Lancing College and achieved these top results.

On getting his grades Hugh said: “I was quite excited, and that’s an understatement.”
