The quality of the boarding provision and outcomes for pupils are excellent; pupils benefit from high quality care and strong academic and extra-curricular provision. Boarders are happy and feel supported and cared about, while having the space to think for themselves.

Welcome to boarding at Leweston. Leweston has a long established reputation as a boarding school with almost half the school boarding at some time in their school career. Here in this beautiful and inspiring setting the girls live in a community that nurtures the individual to achieve her potential, and to grow socially, academically and spiritually. Girls have the facilities to study productively; to enjoy varied and stimulating leisure time; to form lasting bonds of friendship and to learn to live co-operatively, with sensitivity to the needs of others.

We have a range of different boarding options that allow girls and their families to find a style of boarding that works well for them, be it full, weekly or flexi boarding.

Boarding allows girls to develop independence in a secure environment; to take responsibility for themselves, their learning and others, and to take full advantage of the wide range of activities and facilities Leweston has to offer.

We are resident in the main school buildings, and together with the whole boarding team, we are fully involved in all aspects of the girls’ lives. We really enjoy the privilege of supporting and educating the girls in our care. We hope that you will be able to take the opportunity to visit the boarding houses, to meet members of our community and see some of its strengths for yourself.
