Welcome to our wonderful school. Please do come and visit so that you can see and experience for yourself the heartbeat of our school. In the meantime I hope this website will provide a flavour of what makes Leweston so remarkable.
At Leweston we offer an environment where children feel comfortable to grow. We encourage them to try everything on offer so we can nurture their talents to achieve great things. We celebrate success with them but also teach them that it is part of life to fail; without new experiences they will not discover who they are and what they can achieve. It is this process of discovery that allows us to bring out the best in every pupil and help them to achieve more than they thought possible.
Leweston is a Catholic school which welcomes pupils of all faiths and none. We have a distinctive and inclusive ethos based on exemplary pastoral care for day pupils and boarders alike. We pride ourselves on understanding our pupils’ emotional and academic needs and recognise that these will change during their journey with us. We set high standards both inside and outside the classroom, and our values of community, opportunity and respect are the bedrock of our school.
The independence, resilience and willingness to try instilled at Leweston mean that our pupils go into the world with the confidence to achieve great things. They have the ability to adapt, to work alongside different people in new environments and to embrace change. Past pupils are now business leaders, engineers, pilots, scientists, entrepreneurs, medics working on the frontline in war-torn countries, architects, world record breaking rowers and politicians to name a few. The school is delighted to have helped them on their way by unleashing the true potential in each and every one of them.
Visitors quickly discover what a busy and vibrant community Leweston is. I look forward to welcoming you here soon.
