Foundation Places

The Foundation helps around 50 children, many of whom have been bereaved of one or both parents, or those who have lost their support through other circumstances, to benefit from the support, structure and stability of LWC’s boarding environment.

Foundation Awards

  • The Lord Wandsworth Foundation helps to fund a boarding or day place at LWC in conjunction with other trusts and charities.
  • We aim to award seven places for Year 7 entry (11+) each year (depending on funding available).  Awards in other year groups are subject to availability.
  • Awards are means-tested and reviewed annually.
  • Priority is given to children who are bereaved of one or both parents.
  • Preference is given to children who were born in the UK.
  • Children who have lost the support of one or both parents through other circumstances e.g. divorce, disability or mental ill health, are also eligible to apply,
  • The child needs pastoral care and a supportive, structured environment in which to thrive.  He/she must be able to cope academically, integrate socially and contribute to the College community.
  • The parent must not have remarried or be cohabiting.
