Leweston School is an independent day and boarding school, co-educational in the Nursery, Prep, Senior School and Sixth Form. Leweston’s values are based upon a supportive Catholic ethos.

Leweston offers an academic education in an environment which is both stimulating and inspiring. Expectations are high; pupils are challenged in their studies to achieve the best possible academic success, and Leweston pupils are well-balanced young adults who take their place in the world with confidence. They go on to contribute to society in many different ways reflecting the many and varied opportunities placed before them at school.

Our motto, ‘Gaudere et Bene Facere’ – ‘Rejoice and Do Well’ dates from the seventeenth century and applies to pupils and staff alike. It suggests not only that if something is worth doing, it is worth doing well, but also that it is worth doing in the right frame of mind, one which is positive, outgoing and cheerful. With a long established reputation as a boarding school with strong pastoral care, the close ties with other schools in the South West provide ample opportunity for the pupils to socialise with their peer groups. Visitors quickly discover what a busy and vibrant community Leweston is. I look forward to welcoming you to Leweston so that you can see and experience for yourself what we have to offer.
