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 see find out more about the aspects of the school you are most interested in.


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, 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.


We host one Open Morning every year which takes place in September when the Senior School and Sixth Form are open for tours, and there is a dedicated Sixth Form Information Evening in October. There is no Prep open event as all families are invited for a personal visit.

All prospective pupils are encouraged try out the school for the day by joining us for Taster Day.

We offer group taster events as well as individual tasters, arranged on a date and time to suit you and your family. You can have as many taster days as you need and many pupils come to a group event before visiting for a personal taster. We understand that the more times your child visits Leweston whether through tasters, holiday clubs or events, the less daunting the move to school will be.

Group tasters are typically themed and will run according to a distinct programme. For individual tasters pupils will join their prospective classmates for a normal teaching day. They will have a guardian throughout the day so that they do not get lost or worry about where to go next. We will ensure that we let you know if sports kit or any other equipment is needed on the day. Both types of event provide a good feel for what life at Leweston is like. For any family considering boarding, we offer boarding taster days and nights too.

This year’s group taster, or Activity Day for pupils in Year 5 is taking place on Friday 17 June. Places can be booked by clicking on the button below:
