At LWC we provide an excellent education to all our pupils, many of our pupils move on to highly successful careers and excellent universities. Our students go into a huge variety of different fields and thanks to our excellent Careers Guidance and Support every student receives help and advice on what to do after college. LWC leavers have excellent university prospects, with our Academic Enrichment and Character Education schemes ensuring that all pupils leave the college as well prepared for the outside world as possible.
Many opportunities are provided for students to prepare for university - including a wide variety of events, speeches and 1 to 1 discussions with a personal tutor. The college offers help to students at every step of the application process - meaning that everyone gets the best chance at getting in to the university of their choice.
