Westbourne is the Top school in Sheffield and 7th nationwide*

Based in the leafy historic suburbs of the City, less than 15 minutes drive from the Peak District National Park, we are the only co-educational independent school in Sheffield offering first class education to girls and boys from the age of 3 to 16.
With our individualised learning, we offer every child the opportunity to excel and to be the best that they can be. In addition, our bespoke Scholarship Class delivers some of the best teaching, learning and results for the brightest girls and boys.
We hope you find the information on our website and contained here useful. However, the best way to find out about us and understand what happens here is to visit the school and see and feel it for yourself.
It is only by meeting our children and staff and by walking around our campus that you can begin to appreciate what a special environment Westbourne provides to help your child enjoy and embrace their own unique learning journey.

Welcome from the Headmaster...

Westbourne is a unique school in many ways and for the past 30 years has been the only non-selective co-educational independent school for children from three to 16 years of age in Sheffield.

We are fully inclusive and embrace the diversity and individuality of today's children. Children are not selected on academic ability yet we are still enjoying a fine tradition of excellence in education.

Children are invited to join us based on their own individual merit - be that as a high academic flyer, someone requiring extra support, someone being identified as SEND, or the child that performs better in our nurturing environment.

Regardless of an individuals starting point, we guarantee success at all levels and celebrate the achievements of all of our pupils.



It is the high quality of the teaching and learning that takes place along with the offer of specialist subjects that appeals to our parents.



Here our children thrive in this academic yet supportive and nurturing environment. All children learn differently and we treat all our pupils as individuals. As a result, each one of them is given the opportunity to shine.



There is considerable demand for our Senior School due to our academic success and our ability to achieve excellence both inside and outside of the a time when it matters the most.
In Senior School our role is to help children to identify their talents and to provide them with every opportunity to find out what they want to do in life - all while encouraging them to become considerate, interesting and successful individuals.
