We believe that a child’s experience is significantly enhanced when they board. We have full, weekly and part-time boarders and children board in Year 3 - 8. We currently have around 100 boarders.

"Boarding at Westbourne House has prepared me for senior school and for life."
Three children share their experiences of our home from home, friendly boarding at Westbourne House School. Lucas, Isabel and Bianca needed no encouragement to step up and talk about boarding and the difference it has made to them.
For us, boarding is centred on the idea of ‘family’. We know that in order for children to be successful, they need to feel happy and relaxed. We create a safe and supportive environment for our children, in order for them to develop into caring, self-reliant, confident individuals. We expect our boarders to support one another, to be kind, considerate and respectful and we work with our children to build a strong community spirit.
Boarding has given my children the chance to grow in independence and to learn to get on with different people - all in a familiar, fun and safe environment.
Smart, low rise and cosy, with a trampoline in one of the gardens, they really felt like a home-from-home. Pupils said they loved the strong showers and having barbecues and treats like a visit from an ice cream van.
