An Inspiring Location

Westbourne House is set in 100 acres of parkland between the sunny South Downs and the south coast, just outside the beautiful cathedral city of Chichester and close to the famous Goodwood Estate, home to world-famous horse and motor racing events.

As a school, we make the most of our expansive natural surroundings, both within the school grounds and beyond, to enrich the children's learning experiences.  We have a long tradition of taking lessons outdoors when possible; whether this is to study mini beasts in our woods or to 'feel' the first signs of spring to inspire descriptive writing.

On each curriculum page, you will find a description of how we make the most of local geographical features such as the beach at West Wittering or the Trundle on the South Downs; historical landmarks such as the Roman Palace in Fishbourne; and our local cultural centres such as Pallant House Gallery and Chichester Festival Theatre.
