The College

Lord Wandsworth College is an ambitious  and forward-thinking independent, HMC co-educational boarding and day  school of around 600 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 add a stimulating dimension to  the school’s make-up and the Foundation is central to the ethos of LWC.

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

The future

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.  The whole school is equipped to enable children to bring their own devices and our virtual learning  environment is growing in use.  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.
