Inspirational teaching, outstanding learning...

Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions in life, for both parents and children. We recognise that in deciding to send your daughter or son to Westbourne you are making a tremendous investment both financially and - more importantly - in entrusting us with the education of your child.

The Westbourne Way

We believe that Westbourne School is a special and unique environment in which pupils can reach their full potential.

For many prospective parents their first contact with Westbourne is via this website and we hope it has provided you with some useful information.

However, words are no substitute for the real thing and we would love you to come and visit to see Westbourne for yourself. Please call 0114 2660374 to arrange a tour with our Headmaster on a working day, to meet staff and talk to our children.

We can also put you in touch with our 'Friends of Westbourne' parents if you wish to have an informal chat about life at Westbourne.

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Here at Westbourne we endeavour to make that process as straight forward and rewarding as we can. Every child is an individual and we therefore don’t have a “fit all” approach.

During the admissions process we take time to get to know your child including their likes, interests and hobbies. In return they get to know us and can then make an informed decision as to whether Westbourne is the right environment for them.
