Academic achievement opens the door to further opportunity but
that needs to be supplemented with good life skills. The policy of
'educating girls and boys for life' ensures that children leave
Westbourne with confidence and able to make a valuable contribution
to any community.
The co-ed environment in which Westbourne children learn cements
the close-knit family atmosphere that Westbourne promotes.
By learning, playing and developing together boys and girls
are able to support one another and grow up functioning effectively
together - as is the natural order of life.
As well as giving each and every pupil the confidence to 'give
things a go' with their enviable array of extracurricular
activities, there is a strong focus on instilling traditional
values, such as respect and manners - these are just some of the
many elements that contribute to Westbourne's friendly, family
atmosphere and ultimately to its success.
Excellent exam results year on year and highly successful
alumni, prove how effective Westbourne's approach to teaching is.
It's therefore little wonder the most recent ISI
inspection returned positive results in all areas. "Responses to
questionnaires show that parents are overwhelmingly satisfied with
the education and support provided for their children." - ISI
inspection report November 2013
