Lord Wandsworth College

is a day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 11 to 18.  Set in 1,200 acres of rolling countryside on the North Hampshire and Surrey border, Lord Wandsworth College is named after Baron Sydney Stern, a Liberal MP and the second son of a Jewish banker. Granted a peerage less than four years after winning the seat of Stowmarket in 1891, Stern took the title of Lord Wandsworth in reflection of his many links with the area. When Lord Wandsworth died in 1912 he left a generous bequest to educate the children of agricultural workers; children who had lost one or both parents and needed the support of a boarding environment.

Lord Wandsworth’s Trustees purchased the site on which the College now stands and the first ‘Foundationers’ arrived in 1922, followed by fee-paying students in 1945.

Today, the 1,200-acre site houses the College buildings, with extensive facilities and Stern Farm. This arable farm provides a timely reminder of those early students and of the College’s agricultural heritage.
