Dominic Oliver, the Head Master, said: “Congratulations to our GCSE candidates on their hard work and splendid results in a wide range of subjects. These studies, complemented by the many opportunities beyond the curriculum that Lancing offers, represent an excellent foundation for their A Level years.
