About LSL


LSL provides completely bespoke full time and part time education. We are a small and specialised one-to-one school focused on educational transitions and onward placements into boarding and day schools, sixth form colleges and universities. As a result of our individualised approach, we are often able to take students at very short notice at any point in the academic year.

We have extensive experience in helping young people with learning difficulties, and students encountering other issues in their academic lives. Within our small but dynamic environment, highly experienced tutors work closely with a range of advisers in implementing a broad range of educational strategies. All schemes of work are carefully managed to ensure curriculum goals are met whilst maintaining a caring atmosphere and family ethos.

Unlike larger institutions, we are able to precisely reproduce each your child’s current portfolio of subjects at any level and across all major UK examination boards, with no disruption to his or her educational goals. This will ensure that a student’s full time education is not disrupted in the run up to examinations.

The highly intensive nature of tuition at LSL means that children who have not thrived in other schools can show rapid improvement and attain unexpected and lasting results. Supported by our in-house educational consulting service, families can be assured that the next educational step is thoroughly researched and is absolutely right for the individual student. At LSL, every one of our students succeeds.
