Each year Leweston is proud to award scholarships which recognise and encourage pupils with talent, potential and who we believe will make a significant contribution to the life of the school. Scholarships are available for Academic Excellence and in Art and Design, Equestrian, Music, Drama, Sport and Pentathlon. Please be advised that candidates can apply for only one scholarship. There are also two boarding scholarships open to UK full boarders looking to join either Year 9 or Sixth Form.
The Headmaster’s Award may be given to a pupil who narrowly misses out on an award in one specific area but who nonetheless demonstrates high levels of talent, ability, dedication and community spirit based on their performance in the scholarship assessment, interview and reference from their current school. It is not possible to make a specific application for this, as it is given at the discretion of the Headmaster and will not necessarily be awarded every year.
The St Antony Award is made to a student entering Sixth Form who demonstrates leadership, enthusiasm, community and service to others.
Applications for scholarship are invited from external candidates at Years 7, 9 or Sixth Form as well as pupil’s transitioning from Prep 6 to Year 7, Year 8 to Year 9 or Year 11 to Sixth Form.
Scholarships are not means tested and the awards given represent the honour rather than a significant monetary value. If you require financial assistance beyond the award you may also apply for a bursary. Bursary applications must be made at the same time.
