The College of Saint Mary and Saint Nicolas (as it was originally known), in Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, was intended for the sons of Upper-Middle-Classes and Professional Men; in time, this became Lancing College, moving to its present site in 1857.

The School's buildings of the 1850s were designed by the architect Richard Cromwell Carpenter, with later buildings by John William Simpson.
