Welcome from Headmaster John Hicks
It is my belief that in today’s society the ability to communicate and develop social and personal skills is as important as academic achievements – and this philosophy is at the very heart of everything we do at Westbourne.
As well as giving each and every pupil the confidence to ‘give things a go’, with our enviable array of extracurricular activities, there is a strong focus on instilling traditional values, such as respect and manners.
We cherish each individual – staff as well as pupils – and we work with our parents in partnership to provide the best possible education.
We have unrivalled small class sizes and our Scholarship Class in Senior School produces some of Sheffield’s best exam results. A high percentage of children in this class go on to win scholarships to top sixth forms before heading to the country’s leading universities, including several pupils to Oxbridge.
The ethos of our school is epitomised by our staff and I am indeed fortunate and privileged to work with a team of such dedicated professionals.
Westbourne’s classrooms are unique in the way that pupils interact with each other and the teachers, a relaxed yet serious, good humoured and focused atmosphere that has a warmth and vitality based on mutual respect.
Westbourne children are happy and free to express their natural creativity and curiosity.
Experience that atmosphere by coming along and seeing it for yourself. We are always happy to welcome guests to Westbourne.
I look forward to meeting you.
