Nestled within our stunning 1200 acre campus of soft rolling hills and wooded valleys, there is a school where pupils are thriving. It is a school with an inspirational charitable Foundation, a passion for the individual and one which nurtures character and inner self-confidence. At Lord Wandsworth College, pupils have a voice, alongside a desire to be curious, creative and gain an ever-developing sense of emotional intelligence. We also have a great deal of fun.
Our aim is to shape inwardly self-confident, outwardly modest young men and women who are not only curious and passionate but are ambitious to go and make a positive difference in the world. Our pupils consistently excel in traditional testing, with more than half scoring A* to A grades (or 9s) at GCSE and A Level. More importantly, they are given an education of opportunities. We ensure each pupil is given the opportunity to excel in whatever guise that takes - part of a philosophy that put our senior staff on the i25 shortlist for innovators in education. Pupils work hard inside the classroom, and outside it too, with a wealth of possibilities in sport, the Arts, STEM and our incomparable access to nature, leaving our pupils with a sense of radical optimism - a spirit that says, 'through perseverance, I can conquer'.
Lord Wandsworth College is named after Baron Sydney Stern, Lord of Wandsworth, who in 1912, left a generous bequest to educate orphaned children. This charitable spirit lives on today as the Lord Wandsworth Foundation offers a number of assisted places to children who have lost the support of one or both parents and who would benefit from an outstanding education in a caring, nurturing environment. All pupils are conscious of this, and a sense of inclusion and collective responsibility for the happiness of others is strong here. In fact, it is paramount. Lord Wandsworth College offers full, weekly and flexi boarding (three nights a week). There are eight boarding houses, all run by caring houseparents who provide the main point of contact between school and home, organise house activities and social events and are supported by a team of compassionate tutors and matrons. Day pupils are fully integrated into the boarding house system. Pupils find a wide range of subjects to challenge, engage and inspire them. The sporting facilities are outstanding and include two floodlit astroturfs, a 25 metre indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, 2 sports halls, squash courts, a climbing wall, netball courts, indoor and outdoor cricket nets, numerous cricket, rugby, hockey and football pitches, a grass athletics track and a cross-country course. Renowned for the high standard of its productions, the Music and Drama Centre provides opportunities for personal instruction, performance and exhibition in the 250 seat bespoke theatre space. Students are encouraged to get involved in all aspects of theatre production including acting, directing, set design, costume, make-up, lighting and music tech. Dance is flourishing with excellent performances every term including ballet, street dance and modern. There are many vocal and instrumental music groups too: Concert Band, Chamber Choir, Senior Choir, Classical Guitar and Sax Groups.
