INSIDE SCOOP Lord Wandsworth College Long Sutton, Hook, Hampshire, RG29 1TB Admissions: 01256 860 385 • Day/Flexi/Weekly/Full 11-18 SE The Inside Scoop from a current parent… We chose LWC based on our tour of the school, our interaction with the Headmaster and the thoughtful, professional way in which the Admissions Office communicated with us. The school has far exceeded all our expectations. The underlying ethos is one of inclusion and encouragement and the staff are dedicated and kind. My sons have thrived academically and are fulfilling their potential across the curriculum. The teachers’ dedication not only academically but pastorally is immense. The school nurtures the ‘whole person’, building confidence, self-reliance and social skills whilst ensuring that they fulfil their academic potential to support this. It is a testament to Lord Wandsworth College that both our very different boys have excelled in its environment. Open days: Please contact the college for information. As parents, we love: That they nurture the ‘individual’, developing trust, independence and confidence in the students. High standards of behaviour and any issues are dealt with quickly, tactfully and practically. Communication is clear, meaningful and regular. Our children love: The teachers who help them exceed expectations. The school is kind, friendly and you can ‘have a go’ and get involved in a range of activities. The school recognises each individual for the contribution they make to the school. HEADS UP “A school with an inspirational charitable foundation, a passion for the individual and one which nurtures character and inner self-confidence. Pupils have a voice, alongside a desire to be curious, creative and gain an ever-developing sense of emotional intelligence.We also have a great deal of fun.” Adam Williams, Headmaster 56 Read the full review on ★ 2019

INSIDE SCOOP Ludgrove School Ludgrove, Wokingham, RG40 3AB Admissions: 0118 978 9881 • Full 8-13 SE As parents, we love: The intimacy and closeness of all the boys across the year groups. The confidence they instil in each child to excel. The leadership, led by Simon Barber and his wife, Sophie – both passionate about Ludgrove through and through. The Inside Scoop from a current parent… There are many outstanding schools with amazing facilities and excellent academic results that we could have picked for our boys. Ludgrove checks all the usual boxes but it is unique in delivering that something extra – a real sense of pride and lifetime belonging to a school and a community that gives the students the confidence and conviction to excel at what they do with humility and integrity. Attending Ludgrove gives our children not just an amazing education, a memorable five years of childhood and making lifelong friends – it gives them an identity that unites old Ludgrovians, old and young. Our children love: The opportunity to play lots of sports; the music and the acting. The friendships, with boys and the staff, in particular the way they all help and constantly support each other. The food, especially the waffles! HEADS UP “Friendships are made for life – we aim to create an environment where the unique Ludgrove spirit allows boys to thrive in an atmosphere of high achievement, happiness, good manners and kindness.” Simon Barber, Headmaster Open days: Please contact the school for more information. 2019 ★ Read the full review on 57
