Westbourne isn’t just any school

Based in the leafy historic suburbs of the City, we are the only co-educational independent school in Sheffield offering first class education to girls & boys from the age of 3 to 16.

Forest School

We are proud of our official Forest School status, which adds to an already impressive outdoor learning curriculum to take lessons out of the classroom.

This green oasis is a wonderful spot for encouraging and stimulating young minds with activities including bushcraft, shelter building and canopy making.

It has been proven to build independence and self-esteem, as well as having vital benefits for children’s mental health.

We offer a green oasis in the heart of the city…and a wonderful spot for encouraging and stimulating young minds.

We are proud of our Forest School status, which takes lessons out of the classroom for a wider educational experience.
Forest School is the outdoor education system in which students visit natural spaces to learn personal, social and technical skills, using woodlands and forests as a means to build independence and self-esteem in children and young adults.

Westbourne has made great headway toward its long-term goal of improving the social and emotional wellbeing of its children through increased access to outdoor learning.

By utilising the whole leafy campus in the centre of Broomhill, we have ensured that our Forest School provision continues to grow, allowing more children to access new skills at the same time as developing teamwork, perseverance and resilience.

Outdoor lessons are based in The Dell, a beautiful secret wooded garden that can be used for everything from science classes to drama - a stimulating location that encourages the imagination at any time of the year.

The space has proved so popular that other schools are now making it part of their classes too and it is also being made available for children’s parties and events within the wider community.

The simple truth is that taking lessons outdoors has made an enormous positive impact of the lives of all our pupils,” said Junior School Head Jon Clark.

“It’s a stimulating, healthy, fun environment that encourages children of all ages and abilities to take a different approach to learning.”

Children of all ages benefit from the experience of finding education in this refreshing, calming setting, encouraging the school’s core values of excellence and inclusion, respect and resilience.

We were also delighted to be able to share our site with other primary schools and the wider community, running outdoor learning sessions for local schools, as well as hosting Forest School and wildcraft parties.
