School Ethos

Westbourne House strives to create a positive and happy atmosphere in which children are encouraged to aim for excellence in work and play, to live together as members of a community and to use their free time sensibly.

The School provides a disciplined, yet happy environment where children know what is expected of them, both in the standard of their work and in their behaviour. The emphasis of the school is on catering for the needs of the individual. Classes are small and both the Headmaster and the child's Form Teacher/Tutor carefully monitor each child's progress. There are many opportunities for parents to meet staff, formally at Parents' Evenings and informally when the need arises. The Head's door is always open. Effort grades are sent home regularly, as well as informative end of term reports.

We have blended the best of the old with the best of the new; this will, we trust, result in a fully rounded education that will give strength and confidence to the child preparing for the future.

We will:

  • Be gentle
  • Be kind and helpful
  • Listen to people
  • Share
  • Be honest and truthful
  • Forgive others
  • Work hard
  • Be patient
  • Look after property
