Everyone is welcome at Leweston and we encourage everyone to come and visit. Our friendly admissions team are available on 01963 211015 or at admissions@leweston.dorset.sch.uk. They are happy to answer questions and ensure that you find out more about the aspects of the school you are most interested in.


We host one Open Morning every year which takes place in September when the Senior School and Sixth Form are open for tours. There is no Prep open event as all families interested in this age range are invited for a personal visit.


All prospective pupils are encouraged to join the annual Year 5 Activity Day. This event typically takes place in June and welcomes children currently in Year 5 whether they are considering Year 7 or Year 9 entry, or Prep 6 the following September. The day is themed and run according to a distinct programme. The event provides a good feel for what life at Leweston is like.


We believe that the best way to experience Leweston is to have an individual tour, tailor-made to your requirements. A typical visit will take around 1½ hours and include a tour of the school as well as a meeting with either Mr Paget-Tomlinson, Headmaster, or Miss Phillips, Head of Prep. If you would like to meet specific staff (Director of Sport and Physical Education, Director of Music, Head of Sixth Form etc) this, too, can be arranged. There will also be the opportunity to tour the Boarding Houses and meet Mrs Simkins-Smith, Director of Boarding, if that is of interest. For those who live further away, or abroad, one-to-one virtual meetings with the Headmaster can be arranged.
