At the heart of all good learning is pupil happiness; a pupil who is happy and has a high sense of value of themselves and to the community is one who will go above and beyond. This leads to personal growth – not only academically, but emotionally and socially as well. It’s a positive ripple effect that benefits the wider world.

Numerous respected institutions, from the Mental Health Foundation to the Wall Street Journal, have highlighted the transformative power of kindness. By helping others, our students reduce stress and elevate their mood, self-esteem, and overall happiness.


A safe environment


LWC is committed to creating a safe, supportive environment where students can explore who they are, take measured risks, and contribute to something larger than themselves. This ethos permeates every aspect of our school, both inside and outside the classroom.


Exceptional pastoral care is the cornerstone of our approach, extending far beyond the traditional boundaries of boarding houses and dedicated staff.

Our staff are adept at knowing when to implement support strategies and when to allow the pupil to find their own way…


We understand that life’s journey is rarely without challenges. How we navigate those moments reveals our characte and the values instilled within us. We embrace the opportunity for our students to experience some adversity, knowing this will help them develop resilience and strategies to thrive.


Our staff possess the wisdom to know when to offer guidance and support, and when to step back and allow students to discover their own path. We encourage thoughtful reflection through coaching, empowering our students to become the best versions of themselves.


Recognition of Excellence


While awards are not our primary focus, we are honored to have been recognised with the BSA’s Working with Vulnerable Children Award and the Independent School of the Year Award for Student Wellbeing. These accolades speak to the profound importance we place on student support and pastoral care.
