The Department
The College receives many applications from the UK as well as across the globe and the role of the Admissions Department is to ensure the experience of prospective families and pupils is a positive one when they apply to Lancing.

A key element of the role is working with the Director of Admissions to develop and maintain strong relations with prep/feeder schools, including managing mailings/events with prep schools regarding prospective pupils.

You will manage the administration of entrance assessments, scholarships and additional tests as well as the post assessment communications with parents at all entry points.

You will ensure a customer- friendly transition of pupils to the school following confirmation of a place. This will include managing the distribution of pre-arrival communications (joining instructions) and welcome events.
