  • The school aims to offer an environment where 'children feel comfortable to grow, but are nonetheless challenged to act and think independently'. They are encouraged to try everything on offer in order the school can nurture their talents.

    Headmaster John Paget-Tomlinson says: 'We will allow them to experience failure, but we will never let them fail and, like you, we will never fail them. It is this process of discovery that allows us to bring out the very best in every pupil and help them to achieve more than they thought possible.'

    'The independence, willingness to try and resilience instilled at Leweston mean that our pupils go into the world with the confidence to achieve. They have the ability to adapt, to work alongside different people in new environments and to embrace change.'
