Whilst The Governors of Leweston School seek to maintain competitively priced fees for all pupils we recognise that finding the funds for school fees can be a challenge for some families.

The School is committed to offering a limited number of means tested bursaries every year to allow pupils to attend who would not otherwise be able to do so. For the programme to be truly effective and to help as many deserving families as possible it is expected that parents will make their children’s education a financial priority, with both parents in work before an application is made. All bursaries are subject to annual review and pupils must be registered with the school to make an application.

Bursary awards can take many forms but are typically worth between 10-20% of the current day fees, this can rise to as much as 40% in exceptional circumstances. The Bursary team are there to support parents with their application and if you would to speak to our Bursar for more advice please contact Mrs Hamnett his secretary on 01963 210765.

If you need assistance beyond which the school can provide you also can contact the Educational Grants Advice Service for grants information and advice on  01932 865619 from 9am-11am, Monday – Friday or visit the Educational Trusts Forum.


In recognition of our commitment to being a family school, families with more than one child attending Leweston at the same time can access the following discounts on the current day fees:

For two children attending Leweston, the eldest receives 5% discount.
For three children attending, the eldest receives 10% and the second child receives 5% discount.
For four children attending the eldest receives 15%, the second receives 10% and the third child receives 5% discount.

Please note the sibling discount commences when the second child joins Year One.


Leweston has many years’ experience in catering for the needs of Forces families. We offer a range of different boarding options which allow pupils and their families to find a style of boarding that works well for them, be it full, weekly or flexi boarding. Leweston welcomes boarders who receive the Forces’ Boarding Schools Allowance – Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA).
