About Westbourne Academy
Westbourne Academy in Ipswich isn’t just a school – it’s a microcosm of the world, with students from all around the globe. Between them, they speak 32 languages, and their unique perspectives on learning and life make this a unique academy.
Since 2016, our Ofsted rating has gone from Requires Improvement to Good – an incredible transformation that we are keen to continue.
In particular, inspectors noted that “pupils enjoy positive relationships with their teachers” and that teachers “benefit from a comprehensive training programme in a range of areas that is bespoke to the needs of individuals”.
We regard this as an enormous achievement, as many of our pupils come from deprived backgrounds and face significant barriers to learning.
We welcome fresh ideas from our teachers and actively value their creativity and imagination. We’re passionate about innovative teaching practice, and we’re always keen to find new ways to stimulate our students’ learning.
Ipswich is one of only 12 areas in the country to be included in the DfE’s Opportunity Areas Programme, meaning we receive additional funding aimed at improving social mobility. This allows us to offer enhanced packages to exceptional teachers.
Westbourne Academy offers the satisfaction of transforming disadvantaged young people’s futures, in an excellent location amidst attractive countryside, just an hour from London.
