Lansdowne College is an independent sixth form college situated in Bayswater in the City of Westminster, England. Lansdowne is registered as an independent school 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."

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 school currently has 230 students enrolled with two thirds being British students and the remaining one third from more than twenty different countries.
