This year’s results for the pupils of Lord Wandsworth College are a statement that even with the challenges in the UK education sector presently, the outstanding relationship between them and their teachers and a commitment to innovation and redesigning learning has seen them flourish. There were many excellent stories, with over 32 % of results being grades A*-A, nearly 63% A*-B and a pass rate of 100%. The year group further achieved over 80% of A* and A grades in their Extended Project Qualification as they took and applied their subject knowledge to university degree level.

The past few years have seen the quality of Teaching and Learning transform at LWC, and this year it was the turn of departments such as Maths, Art, History, English and Politics to shine a light on the ways in which the school is reimagining education. The sport has been incredibly strong too, with county titles and national finals in hockey, cricket, rugby, athletics, equestrianism and marathon canoeing, to name but a few.
These achievements are within the context of record investment in pupils, staff and facilities, notably with a stunning new state-of-the-art Sixth Form Centre and café, which opens in August, a transformed netball and tennis centre, a beautiful new Year 7&8 social hub, refurbished and expanded library, new teaching facilities, a commitment to green energy with solar panels and a totally refurbished theatre from the year before meaning the Performing Arts are flourishing. Record demand for places and pupil numbers remain, and positive wellbeing and mental health are at the heart of our community, recognised by national awards in the past few years.
On an individual level, huge congratulations, in particular, go to Nick Watt, who achieved 4A*s, as well as James Jones, Joe Gregory, Oliver Parker, Felix Auld, Megan Sawers, Max Johnstone, Harriet Gibson, Isobel Rafferty, Ella Winn and Sadie Kitto, who scored a raft of A*s and A grades. Harriet Gibson has won her place at Cambridge to read English.
“It is wonderful to see our pupils flourishing in subjects which require collaboration and innovation, and having the courage to learn in the margins, not simply what is on the syllabus. As the national exam landscape seems to narrow ever further, our pupils continue to keep their choices broad, interconnected and curious – essential 21stCentury skills to embrace. They continue to be supported by inspirational teachers too, who constantly strive for new and innovative ways to deliver the joy of their subjects.”
—Headmaster, Adam Williams
This school is thriving, thanks to the culture set by pupils and staff alike.

GCSE Results 2023
14% = A*/9
Our pupils consistently achieve GCSE grades above expectations.
With so much flux and volatility in the world at present, it is wonderful to see the pupils at Lord Wandsworth College flourishing as the school begins the second hundred years of its existence. The best schools keep evolving, never settling, pushing expectations and boundaries, whilst championing a culture of kindness, of inclusion and ambition.
This GCSE year group has had county and national success in hockey, rugby, equestrianism, marathon canoeing, dance and reached the schools’ national Hundred cricket finals. They have also produced some excellent exam results again this year, very similar to 2019 levels. 14% grade 9s, 47% grade 9-7s, 85% Grades 9-5s and a 95% pass rate. This, in a school that continues to see record investment in people, in facilities, and in a commitment to collaboration with other schools and industries beyond LWC. It was also recognised in the top 100 cricket schools in the UK for the 8th year running.
Particular congratulations go to Freya Green for achieving straight grade 9s and to Grace Batley, Emilia Richards, Will Powell, Jonathan Smith, Isobel Roberts and Dylan Beckett, who narrowly missed out on this accolade. They, alongside one of the largest Sixth Form cohorts ever here, will relish the chance to spend time in their utterly transformed and beautiful Sixth Form centre and café, which opens at the start of term.
At the top of the tables this year were Art, English, Geography, Textiles and the creative subjects. In fact, Art, Drama and Music (notably choral), are quite stunning presently.
“We love what we do here at LWC. Our pupils and staff are passionate, determined, energetic and principled; they add a richness to society and make this school a vibrant and inspirational place to work. It is also a pleasure to be able to share so much of it with so many others within the wider community, something that continues to grow in a school that is passionate about creating a culture of pupils making a positive difference in the world.”
—Headmaster, Adam Williams
