We have an excellent academic record with the majority of our students progressing to Russell Group or similar leading universities.

Every day, our highly experienced teachers inspire our students in an academic and yet informal environment, focusing on both what you need to know, and how to put it into practice for exams.

Our students study in state-of-the-art facilities and have the opportunity to live in our purpose built boarding accommodation.

We also offer specialist preparation for students seeking entry to Oxbridge and Medical Programmes.

A-level retake courses

A-level retake courses, one year and short retake courses available
If you don’t achieve the A-level results you hope for, don’t panic! You are not alone and, with the dedicated Retake Courses available at Lansdowne College, help is at hand.

We don’t believe that you should have to accept a place at a university just to get onto a degree course which requires lower grades, when you know you are capable of higher achievement. If you are confident you can improve on your results, then one of our Retake Courses might be the right choice for you.

The teachers at Lansdowne College use a distinctive style of programme designed to promote self-motivation, based on intensive revision, regular exam preparation and practice, small classes and dedicated university guidance. The success of this method speaks for itself, with the majority of students achieving grades from A* to B to get on the university course of their choice.
