“The Sixth Form at Lancing provides a final two years of scholarship and intellectual stimulation where pupils learn with real enthusiasm and with the expert support of experienced teachers and tutors.

“The breadth and personalised approach of our Sixth Form offer means that we can support and extend the individual talents and aspirations of all of our pupils.
