Graduate Music Assistant (September 2015)

We are currently seeking to recruit a Graduate Music Assistant to help with the day-to-day running of our busy Music Department.  This post would be suitable for anyone considering a career in education or music administration.


Each year, Westbourne supports specific charities; usually an international, national and local organisation, which are chosen by the children.

Last year (2013-14) we raised an amazing £80,000 for charity!  This sum includes money raised for our four school charities - St Wilfrid's Hospice, Friends of Aldingbourne Trust, School in a Bag and Macmilan Cancer Care - as well as money raised for Children in Need, the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and Movember.  Wow!  That is a new record and something for the school community to feel very proud about.

This year (2014-15) we are supporting one local, one national and one international charity:

  • Parents & Carers Support Organisation ( - provides a wide variety of fun and inclusive play activities for disabled children and their siblings, giving respite care for their parents and carers in West Sussex.
  • Dwarf Sports Association UK ( - to make regular sporting opportunities accessible and enjoyable to anyone and everyone of restricted growth in the United Kingdom.
  • War Child ( - provides life-changing support to children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war.
