Lansdowne College is a mixed independent school, mainly specialising in sixth form courses. It is situated in Bayswater in the City of Westminster, England. Lansdowne is registered with the DfE and, since joining the ISA in July 2014, is inspected by ISI. Their last inspection was in 2014 and the report declared that "[Students'] learning skills and their attitudes to work are excellent throughout the college. They are single-minded and purposeful and focus clearly on the specific academic goals they have set themselves. Students from many cultural backgrounds support each other strongly, and an atmosphere of tolerance and mutual respect pervades the college."[citation needed]

It is located in the centre of London opposite Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. The closest underground stations are Queensway and Bayswater.

Lansdowne provides one and two-year A level and GCSE courses for students aged 14 to 19 and a one-year NCUK International Foundation Year for students aged 17 to 19. The primary aim of the college's students is to progress to Higher Education (HE) with recent destinations including Imperial College, UCL, and the universities of Bristol, Birmingham, Warwick, Leeds, Manchester and Queen Mary . The school currently has 230 students enrolled with two thirds being British students and the remaining one third from more than twenty different countries. The school offers nearly 30 A-Level subjects and twelve GCSE subjects. The college principal is Mark Love who has worked in London as a college principal for more than ten years.
