Welcome to the Leweston School website

Since the summer 2014, Leweston Prep has become Leweston Junior Department to reflect its integration with Leweston Senior School.  During the course of the autumn term we will be launching a brand new school website that will reflect these changes.  For further information in the meantime please contact

Whether you are a parent, pupil, Old Antonian or prospective parent we hope that you will find this website a useful source of information.  

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 2 to 11 in the Prep School and girls from age 11 to 18 in the Senior School. 

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. Whether you are looking for a prep, 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. Your child could benefit in so many ways and we look forward to meeting you with them so that you can see for yourself what a Leweston education can offer.

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.
