10 Things Parents Love about Leweston

We know that happy children learn best and so we consider it of the upmost importance that both pupils and parents are getting the most from their experience with us, so we thought we would ask them. Here, in their own words, are the top ten things that our parents said they love most about our school.

1. Joining the family

"Leweston is close knit supportive community that welcomes people into its heart"

"We chose Leweston based almost entirely on the family-feel and individual care".

"Leweston has created a schooling that is connected, everyone is equal with no judgement and interlinked with all ages". 


2. Our values and ethos

"The positive and nurturing atmosphere that is created within the Pre-Prep and Prep is excellent and one which we believe is enabling our children to thrive".

"Building a kind and supportive community that enables child overall development; emotional, social and spiritual without compromising academic".

"I think what the school does best is make the children feel happy and valued in whatever field it might be - boarding, sport, art, cookery, music or classroom".
