2021 - Celebrating another year of excellent results

After another disrupted and unprecedented year, Year 11 students at Westbourne have received their GCSE results at the end of a careful process of internal assessment by their teachers.
With the cancellation of the usual external exams, staff were tasked with evidencing grades for students and engaged in a structured programme over several weeks in the summer term to achieve this. All of our students showed remarkable resilience and determination to succeed when faced with this new and unexpected set of potentially stressful challenges, and their teachers have worked incredibly hard to ensure that they have gained the grades they deserve in order to move on to the next stage of their education.

We are proud of all our students' achievements this year: 80% gained at least 5 GCSEs at grade 5 or above, and a third of all students gained at least one A* grade (grade 8 or 9).

We wish them every success in their future endeavours, and will always be happy to hear from them as Old Westbournians.

We definitely have the winning formula

We do not have an entrance exam, instead pupils are accepted on their own merit and this proves very popular with the discerning parent. We focus instead on individualised learning, offering every child the opportunity to excel and to be the best that they can be.

This approach to teaching and learning has an excellent success rate with enviable GCSE results. Westbourne was voted “Top School in Sheffield and 7th Nationwide” by the Sunday Times School Guide 2018*, (of the top fee paying schools with small or no sixth forms.)
This goes to show that at Westbourne, we definitely have the winning formula!
