Inspirational teaching, outstanding learning…welcome to Westbourne School


JohnHicksWhosWhoWestbourne is unique, the only non-selective co-educational  independent school for three to 16 year olds in Sheffield, enjoying a fine tradition of excellence in education.

Based in the historic Broomhill area of the city, less than 15 minutes' drive from the Peak District National Park, Westbourne School revolves around two sites only yards apart in the heart of the community.

It is here that we nurture the school's principles of educating girls and boys for life in an atmosphere of support and encouragement at every level.




Headmaster John B Hicks

At Westbourne the Small class sizes (on average 14 pupils) and individualised learning helps each child achieve his or her full potential.

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
