Welcome to Leweston School

Situated in 46 acres of stunning Dorset parkland, just south of Sherborne, Leweston School is an independent day and boarding school which is co-educational in the Nursery and Junior Departments and all girls in the Senior School and Sixth Form. Leweston’s values are based upon a supportive Catholic ethos.

Whether you are looking for a nursery, junior school, senior school, boarding, day or flexi-boarding 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.
