What is a Westbourne scholarship?
Westbourne offers the opportunity of scholarships with reduced fee places to children identified as being more able or talented and who would benefit from the academic opportunities that are available at Westbourne.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of evidence of exceptional recent achievement, performance in the scholarship exams and other assessments carried out on our Scholarship Days. The programme takes place every year in January in the following five categories:
- Any combination of the above 4.
Enrichment – extra support and activities
Successful scholarship students have the opportunity to engage in tailored enrichment activities and extra support in their chosen area of talent. They are supported by staff who are experts in their field, and encouraged to challenge themselves to achieve at the very highest level. Scholarship students also act as school ambassadors, sharing their enthusiasm and encouraging fellow students to take an active interest in their subject area.
We encourage children and parents interested in taking the scholarship exams to visit Westbourne. In our experience, it helps if children feel relaxed and familiar with Westbourne when they sit the exams. Entry into Westbourne School is not dependent on these examinations.
