LWC Family of Schools
LORD WANDSWORTH COLLEGE AND ST NEOT’S PREPARATORY SCHOOL
Lord Wandsworth College and St Neot’s School were delighted to announce their formal collaboration in April 2021.
St Neot’s is a leading independent, co-educational nursery, pre-prep and prep school which welcomes pupils from 2 to 13 years. It is set in a wonderful 70-acre woodland site in Eversley, Hampshire. There has been a strong relationship between the two schools over many years, with a significant proportion of St Neot’s families choosing LWC for their children’s secondary education.
The collaboration between the two schools, both with a demonstrable record of academic and sporting success, now offers a unique educational pathway from 2 to 18 years.
Adam Williams, Headmaster of LWC, said ‘I am excited by this joint venture because our philosophies of education are so aligned. Both schools deliver academic excellence but importantly create opportunities that will embed character traits that form the whole person; traits which equip our young people to want to make a positive contribution in whichever society they live, anywhere in the world. There are few all-through schools that have the development of life skills and respect for the environment so deeply embedded in the daily life of the pupil. This alignment will help us plan a ‘flightpath’ for each child, giving them inner self-confidence, a necessity for the modern world.’
Jonathan Slot was announced as Head of St Neot’s and joined in September 2021. Jonathan was formally at Eagle House School, Berkshire, where he was Deputy Head and both Adam Williams and LWC’s Governing Body were delighted to welcome him to St Neot’s.
Jonathan said ‘Teaching is my passion. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead St Neot’s into the next chapter, which will be all the more exciting thanks to this alignment with Lord Wandsworth College. I know and admire LWC, having sent children there from Eagle House over the last six years and watched them flourish. I can already see many exciting benefits for the St Neot’s pupils in this future close collaboration.’
Both schools have since tightened their alliance, now sharing some of LWC’s senior business staff, working collaboratively on strategy and future projects.
