Boarding Options

Leweston offers a range of different boarding options that allow pupils and their families to find a style of boarding that works well for them. All boarding options are open from Year 3 to Year 13.

Full boarding

Full boarding offers pupils the opportunity to stay at school seven nights a week. It provides boarders with the opportunity to focus on their studies at the evenings and weekends with all the school’s resources on hand as well as enjoy all of the social opportunities Leweston has to offer. A full programme of evening and weekend activities means there is always something to do.

Full boarders can go out any weekend but there is one formal exeat per half term when all boarders return to friends, family or their guardians.

Weekly boarding

Weekly boarding frees pupils from a daily school journey, again allows them to concentrate on academic study and extra-curricular activities. Weekly boarders return home on Friday evenings and either return on Monday morning or Sunday night with our weekly boarding ‘plus’ package.


Pupils can flexi-board for one, two or three nights on an occasional or regular basis. This option is popular with those with regular after school commitments in particular sport, music and drama. 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.
