Lancing College is an independent boarding and day school founded in 1848 by Nathaniel Woodard. The school is based in 550 acres of countryside in West Sussex, east of Worthing near the village of Lancing, on the south coast of England. Lancing educates c. 550 pupils between the ages of 13 and 18; the co-educational ratio is c. 60:40 boys to girls.
The college is situated on a hill which is part of the South Downs, and the campus dominates the local landscape. The college overlooks the River Adur and the Ladywell Stream, a holy well or sacred stream within the College grounds has pre-Christian significance. Woodard's aim was to provide education "based on sound principle and sound knowledge, firmly grounded in the Christian faith." Lancing was the first of a family of more than 30 schools founded by Woodard .
