Welcome to Westbourne School

An independent, co-educational school for children aged 3-18, we pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching and our excellent levels of care. Small class sizes ensure that each child is encouraged to reach their individual potential. Our student population comprises 80% students from the UK along with 20% from international backgrounds. All are warmly welcomed in the friendly, family atmosphere at Westbourne. We teach the renowned International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in Years 12 and 13

The IB Diploma is a very well established and widely respected two-year programme of study for pre-university students. The Diploma qualification is recognised by universities around the world and indeed a strong performance in the Diploma can gain a student access to some of the very best universities in the world.

The IB Diploma is an academically rigorous programme which is also holistic and wide-ranging, encouraging community involvement and internationalism. It requires and helps to develop extremely effective approaches to learning. The nature of the coursework and examinations at the end of the course encourages inquiring, independent and skills-based approaches to learning. The IB Diploma therefore offers the opportunity of a first class education in the widest sense.

The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognising their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
