Welcome to Leweston School

We are an independent, co-educational, day and boarding school in the heart of Dorset, welcoming students from 0 to 18 years old.
Life at Leweston is a busy one, discover what makes a Leweston education so special.

At Leweston we offer an environment where children feel comfortable to grow, but are challenged to act and think independently. We encourage our pupils to try everything on offer so we can nurture their talents to achieve great things. We celebrate success but also teach that it is part of life to make mistakes; without new experiences we cannot discover who we are and what we can achieve. It is this process of discovery that allows us to bring out the very best in every pupil and help them to achieve more than they thought possible.

Good Schools Guide Review

“Leweston’s motto is ‘rejoice and do well’ and the school can certainly rejoice in the fact that it does well, very well” – The Good Schools Guide

The Good Schools Guide stands as the number one school guide in the UK, dedicated to assisting parents at every turn in finding the optimal educational path for their children.

We are delighted to share their review which, we feel, has recognised the aspects of a Leweston education we believe to be the most important; our strong community and family feel, the excellent relationship between pupils and teachers, the vast array of opportunities open to our pupils and our ‘give it a go’ mentality.
