Leweston School has been welcoming students from overseas to the School since its foundation in 1891 and attracts pupils from all around the world.
Our international students are an important part of our friendly, diverse community and reflect the fact that we are part of the global village. Our last Boarding Inspection highlighted how well our overseas students were welcomed, how well they integrated and how much they enjoyed their time at Leweston.
Overseas pupils at Leweston are well motivated and keen to learn. They come from professional families worldwide and go on to study at top universities in the UK and abroad after obtaining excellent GCSE and A-level results.
The Leweston community embraces the rich cultural diversity of its students and regularly celebrates this, encouraging international pupils to introduce their fellow pupils to their own cultures and heritage with events like our International Day, Chinese New Year and Cinco de Mayo.
As Director of International Students, I not only support the students’ language development, but also act as an additional tutor and an advocate for all of our students from overseas. I am also a member of the Sixth Form tutor team. I spend one night in boarding each week providing additional academic and pastoral support to the international boarders and interview all potential new students on Skype as part of the admissions process.
