Welcome to Leweston School

Situated in 46 acres of stunning Dorset parkland, just south of Sherborne,  Leweston is a Catholic independent boarding and day school that welcomes pupils of all denominations.  Leweston takes girls and boys from age 3 months to 11 years old in the Nursery and Junior Department and girls from age 11 to 18 in the Senior School. 

Whether you are looking for a nursery, junior school, boarding, day or girls school Leweston is a popular choice for parents looking for a school in the South or South-West.  With direct train links and road networks to London, Leweston is more convenient than you might imagine.

We are embarked upon the most exciting adventure of education which is both challenging and fun.  At Leweston we believe that education is for life. It is our aim that all pupils should leave us independent of mind and well equipped with the skills they will need to excel in a changing world.  

This website is, of course, only a snapshot of life at our school; there can be no substitute for visiting Leweston and experiencing first hand what a vibrant community we are.
