About Westbourne House School
The school enjoys outstanding facilities. Teaching is extremely well resourced with excellent teaching rooms, the majority equipped with interactive whiteboards; there are also sets of laptops which can be booked for class based work. There are rooms for Art, Ceramics, ICT, Design Technology and Food Technology, a separate Science block and Music School, as well as a modern, 300 seat theatre/assembly hall. The School also has a large (30 acre) lake on the north boundary for kayaking.
Academic standards are high, with consistently outstanding Common Entrance results together with an excellent scholarship record; over the last five years 140 awards and scholarships to senior schools were won across a range of disciplines.
The music and drama departments also excel consistently: all children are involved in school productions, a large number are members of school choirs and there are regular concerts.
There is a wide variety of sport on offer, and a large number of teams represent the school most Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. As well as extensive playing fields there is a 25-metre swimming pool, dance studio, sports hall, squash courts and a full-sized astro-turf pitch.
There are around 100 boarders, many of whom board for two or three nights in one of seven houses on the school grounds. As of September 2017, the school introduced full time boarding allowing the children to further enjoy the beautiful facilities and grounds the school has to offer.
