Support and Careers
By taking the time to understand every student Leweston offers the right balance of support, inspiration and challenge.
Every student has a tutor with whom they build a close working relationship through individual discussions, informal gatherings and weekly tutorials. Tutors monitor academic progress and personal welfare and support students in all their choices, including the next stage of their education or training. They are happy to provide one to one help and advice on any issues their tutees have.
In addition to this, students have the specialist support of each of their chosen subject teachers who assist with academic studies and liaise regularly with tutors to make sure all students are receiving the appropriate support. Leweston also has experienced careers staff who advise and help prepare for university applications, interview preparation and the world of work.
All Sixth Formers at Leweston, day or boarding, have dedicated space in which to work, socialise or relax. Both Year 12 and 13 have their own common rooms, kitchen and study rooms with Wi-Fi access. Students can also study in the spacious and bright Pensabene and Eleanor libraries.
The Sixth Form Centre, or Hub, is located at the heart of the school close to the Library and careers resources. The Hub provides a space for the students to mix and relax, host guests and events. It incorporates a courtyard garden which allows students to socialise and study outdoors if and when we have good weather.
