The school underwent a major modernization in 1978, thanks to which a swimming pool, its own theater and design center, an extensive library, well-groomed fields for sports games appeared on the campus. More recently, the school of the Mouden joined the Lancing College system, which made it possible to teach a broader age range of children - now students from 3 to 13 years can apply for education. About 500 schoolchildren aged 13-18 study at the college for a high school, GCSE and A-level programs.

The maximum capacity of the class does not exceed 22 people, There is 1 qualified and experienced teacher  for every 8 students on the average. Each scientific department of the school is managed by the coordinator: his task is to ensure the full and comprehensive development of the student.

Also, each student has a mentor who will always help in solving domestic, academic and organizational issues.

Lancing College reviews

Catherine B.

Beautiful school with a strong focus on the sport. This is a boarding school (children can live there), so they do it all the time - the British like to not waste a minute.

There are two main kinds of sports (football and tennis). If you do not want to practice professionally, you can not do it (although this is very welcome), but other sports sections (they are already a choice in a variety of options) are mandatory only if there is no exemption from an officially licensed doctor (and most likely they will register swimming, pilates and something else).

As a separate bonus, I note the proximity to Brighton: I have been studying there for some time. Beautiful sea resort, beautiful and developed (at the same time, not noisy and not dirty).
