Lord Wandsworth College
Encouraging every pupil to be as good as they possibly can be, we achieve excellent examination results and create confident, capable, extremely level-headed and happy young people.
Firmly believing that education extends far beyond the classroom, we offer an incredible range of sporting and co-curricular activities and go to great lengths to discover what makes each pupil special.
At LWC, pupils have a voice, alongside a desire to be curious, creative and gain an ever-developing sense of emotional intelligence.
