For over 100 years the Foundation has been supporting children who have been bereaved of one or both parents, or who have lost their support through other circumstances. These children benefit from the stability, structure, and pastoral care provided by our award-winning boarding environment. The Foundation remains at the heart of life at LWC today.


If you, or someone you know, has lost the support of a parent and could benefit from an outstanding and caring education at LWC, or if you would like more information about the Foundation and how to apply for a place, please email: foundation@lordwandsworth.org


Foundation places are primarily available for entry into Year 7 (1st Form) and Sixth Form. However, we do sometimes have availability at other entry points and would welcome a conversation if you have a child who would benefit from a place.


Each case is considered on an individual basis with the child’s best interests at the heart of every discussion. When assessing applications, we take into account the need for pastoral care and a supportive, structured environment, and the likely impact of a Foundation place, both on the child and their wider family.
