We understand how important it is to have piece of mind when sending your child to be educated abroad and the Admissions Team are highly experienced in guiding families through the admissions process.
APPLYING FOR A PLACE
International pupils come to Leweston both for the duration of their studies and for one year courses. Pupils can join the school from Year 4 (age 8) to Year 12 (age 16). For pupils coming with the aim of going to a British university we recommend starting as soon as possible. However, if your child is coming to improve their English for 12 months, any year is equally suitable, although the lower school gives a wider breath of subject choice.
For the benefit of all students, the school has a policy to maintain a good balance of British and International students in both classes and boarding houses so availability changes throughout the academic year. It is therefore advisable to apply early to stand the best chance of success.
The first step in the process for any admission is to complete and return the registration form using the link below, along with a registration fee of £100 which is non-refundable. Applications for future years are encouraged; they will be acknowledged and you will continue to receive updates and news from the school.
Whilst families are always welcome to visit, we recognise this is not always possible, so we are happy to arrange online meetings with the Headmaster or Director of Boarding. We will ask all applicants for their most recent school report and a reference from their current Head. Pupils can then either provide a copy of their UKISET test or complete our own English and Maths test. We will then arrange for a Zoom interview with a senior member of staff, usually the Director of International Students or Deputy Head for those who have English as their first language. Our Headmaster visits Mexico, China and Hong Kong frequently so face to face interviews and family visits may be possible at this time.
