Lord Wandsworth College is an ambitious and forward-thinking independent, HMC co-educational boarding and day school of around 620 pupils, aged 11-18. It enjoys a fine reputation for its very high standards, pastoral care and superb all-round education. This is embodied in our exceptionally wide and high-quality co-curricular programme alongside a passion and drive to be sector leading in Pupil Voice and Character Education. LWC is a popular school, growing significantly - despite the sector challenges – in the past decade. We aim to develop a 'can do, will do' mindset and to nurture and inspire our learners. We believe in them and go the extra mile for them.

LWC is situated in an estate of 1200 acres in a rural area of Hampshire and within the village of Long Sutton, yet only 15 minutes from Hook / Winchfield stations which are less than an hour from central London. The College was founded in the early twenties to provide an education for children who had lost one or both parents and their time was spent not only in school but also working on the farm which was, and remains, an integral part of the LWC landscape. The Lord Wandsworth Foundation still continues to support about fifty children. Our foundationers are a key dimension to the school’s make-up; the Foundation is central to the ethos of LWC.

The College had an ISI Inspection in 2017 and the report may be read at

LWC is in the middle of an exciting development programme, involving the investment of well over £20 million in outstanding facilities through a transformational campus masterplan focused clearly on teaching and learning and the individual. Most important, though, is the quality of our staff, and their professional development is hugely important to us.  We hope everyone finds us warm, welcoming, open and really focused on working hard to do the very best we can for all the pupils in our care. 

Deadline: Thursday 24th January 2019 (midnight).

Interviews: Week commencing Monday 28th January 2019
