Our Story

Young lives. That’s what we focus on, and that’s what inspires us. At Westbourne House we see education as a path, not a destination, and enabling children to succeed today is but the initial step to a successful life and to a better world. It’s a perspective that makes us constantly reassess, refine, and evolve how we operate.

Since 1907, we’ve been learning from each child. And as our experiences, pedagogical expertise, and sensibilities have continued to build so has our ability to discover and shape the character, personality, dreams, potential – in fact, magic - of each child.

In our community-based and relationship-driven environment and expansive natural surroundings our students can safely develop at an age-appropriate pace. Our exceptional academic approach, freedom of intellectual and physical expression, and stimulating diverse atmosphere are built on a foundation of respect, kindness, and perseverance. They’ll participate enthusiastically and they’ll experience the true meaning of inclusion, but their individuality will always be respected, catered to, and nurtured by our staff’s unparalleled level of support and responsiveness.

When curiosity is cultivated and then satisfied, and initiative is rewarded, exceptional individual and collective results are achieved.

We ensure the children’s academic readiness for senior school and we open the doors to valuable scholarships, but more importantly we open their minds and give them the reasoning tools and the forward drive they’ll need to make confident, ambitious and brave decisions on their way to their chosen future. We make this noble purpose, rooted in a sense of personal responsibility, our guiding light - one that drives us in everything we do and to which we are relentlessly committed.

At Westbourne House, we prepare children to shape the future.
