Leweston accepts a number of new pupils into Year 12 every year who quickly assimilate into the school community. Admission to the Sixth Form is by school report, predicted GCSE grades and an interview with the Headmaster.


We have an annual Senior Open Morning in September but are pleased to welcome you for a guided tour and to meet the Headmaster, Mr Paget-Tomlinson, throughout the year. To arrange a mutually convenient time please contact the Registrar, Mrs June Smith on 01963 211015 or smithj@leweston.dorset.sch.uk. There is also a dedicated Sixth Form Information Evening which takes places in October for both existing and prospective students.


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.


The standard entry requirement for students entering Sixth Form is 6 GCSEs at grade 5 or above with a grade 7 or above in the subjects they wish to pursue at A Level.  Students studying subjects such as Psychology and Business Studies which have not been studied previously should show proficiency in similar subjects. Entry is at the discretion of the Headmaster.


Scholarships and Bursaries are available for Sixth Form entry.


Sixth Form applicants are welcome to join us for personal taster days throughout the school year and this can be combined with a night in boarding for those interested.


In February of Year 11 the Deputy Head will ask for your Sixth Form subject choices so that the timetable can be prepared. Both he and the Head of Sixth Form are available to offer advice. At an appropriate point we will request a reference from your current school.


If you and the school are happy to progress we will offer a place. We will email you with our Parent Contract and Acceptance Form. Offers may be open for a limited time only. You will be asked to secure your place by completing the Acceptance Form and paying a deposit (which is returned against your final school bill). Joining information will then be shared with you ahead of your child’s start date. All Sixth Form entrants will be invited to join our induction events in June.


If you have more questions about joining the Sixth Form please visit our Knowledge Base, a library of frequently asked questions which can tell you more about the admissions process as well as life at the school.
