Dominic Oliver, head master, said: “Given the significant disruption to everyone’s learning due to the pandemic, getting Lancing's students safely and successfully to the next stage of their education has been paramount. This has been a hard road for them but they have overcome the difficulties in fine style. We are delighted with the incredible success they have achieved: a heartfelt bravo to them all.

The top university destinations for Lancing students this year are top 100 institutions globally: Imperial College, UCL, Edinburgh, King’s College, London, LSE, Bristol, Birmingham, Durham and Sheffield. Students continue to be especially well supported with their applications for medicine and veterinary medicine, despite the ever more competitive nature of these courses.

"Our students continue to be adventurous, going beyond the UK in search of places at the world’s best universities. This year our dedicated team worked with 11 Lancing pupils, all of whom received offers from a diverse range of overseas institutions, including University of Amsterdam; University of North Carolina, USA; University of Michigan, USA; Melbourne University, Australia; IE University, Madrid; Polimoda Fashion School, Florence; The Hague; McMaster University, Canada; Pennsylvania State University, USA; University of Toronto, Canada; and the University of Queensland, Australia.

“Similarly, the individual support offered at Lancing throughout the sixth form enables pupils to develop and follow specific interests as demonstrated in the wide range of courses studied. This year pupils are leaving to study subjects ranging from economics, mathematics, history and biochemistry to sports management, a c tuarial science, dietetics, criminology and zoology.
