Pastoral Care and Well-Being

Boarding at Leweston is led by the Director of Boarding, Mrs Simkins-Smith but each House has a Houseparent and Assistant. There is always a member of resident staff on duty in the House, the inclusion of teaching staff in boarding means the pupils have a wide range of adult support and supervision at evenings and weekends. Good relationships at all levels and ages are critically important so boarders have a wide range of people involved in their care.

Healthy Eating

Food is very important to boarders who eat together for breakfast and supper, and with the whole school community at lunch. 

Breakfast always includes fruit, cereal, toast and a cooked option, while supper will provide a range of main courses including at least one vegetarian option, choices of dessert including fruit and yoghurt and a salad bar. Special diets can be arranged if needed. The catering team regularly run ‘fakeaway’ or themed nights and we reflect our international community in our menus as it's important to give everyone a taste of home.

Sixth Form boarders are permitted to cook for themselves at weekends and can use the dedicated kitchen in the Sixth Form Centre.
