For many boarding can be a good solution for the challenges of modern family life but with so many different types of boarding on offer which is the best one to suit you?

Full boarding

Full boarders stay at school seven nights a week returning home for the holidays. This option provides boarders with the opportunity to focus on their studies in the evenings and at weekends with all the school’s resources on hand. They can also enjoy all of the social opportunities Leweston has to offer. A full activities programme means there is always something to do.

Weekly boarding

Weekly boarding can offer the best of both worlds freeing pupils from a daily school journey allowing them to concentrate on academic study and extra-curricular activities. As Leweston has no Saturday school, weekly boarders can return home on Friday evenings and come back to school on Sunday night or Monday morning.

Flexi boarding

Flexis can stay in school one, two or three nights a week on an occasional or regular basis. Flexi boarding is popular with pupils who have regular after school commitments and families juggling hectic modern lives. Flexis can finish their homework in supervised prep, enjoy a healthy supper and spend time with their friends ahead of the following school day.

Many pupils start their boarding journey as a flexi and then move to weekly or full boarding as they move to the examination years … or they find out how much they enjoy it.
