Overseas Admissions

Admissions from outside the EU

Westbourne House is always pleased to receive enquiries from families abroad, whether you are relocating, returning to the UK or considering sending your child to be educated in the UK.


Please get in touch if you would like us to send you a prospectus or to ask any questions you may have about the admissions process by contacting Aline Pilcher on +44 1243 782739 or admissions@westbournehouse.org.


If you would like to arrange a visit from outside the EU, please ask for a Registration Form. This should be completed in advance and returned with a copy of your child’s latest school report, a copy of their passport and the registration fee of £350.


During your visit, you and your child will be given a tour of the school and have a meeting with the Headmaster. Your child will also be asked to complete assessments in maths and English.

If a visit is not possible, assessment papers can be completed abroad, under agreed supervision, and supplemented by a Skype interview.

On completion of the interview and assessments, a place may be offered, subject to references from the child’s previous school. 

Please note that Westbourne House has an arrangement for visitors requiring overnight accommodation with The Goodwood Hotel on the Goodwood Estate; tel: +44 1243 775537.


Your child’s place is confirmed by signing and returning an Acceptance Form, along with the acceptance deposit of £500.

Westbourne House is qualified to sponsor a child’s application for a Tier IV study visa for pupils joining us from outside the European Union.

If you have any questions at any stage in the process, please don’t hesitate to get on touch with Aline Pilcher.
