Westbourne House School is an independent co-educational school for c450 children from two-and-a-half to Year 8. It offers superb facilities, encouraging academic, musical, artistic and sporting pursuits to flourish.
Westbourne House School has an outstanding reputation for all-round excellence and well over 100 scholarships in the last five years in a variety of disciplines bear testament to that. However, the overriding ethos of the school is to be inclusive wherever possible, so that each child has the opportunity to make the most of all that is available to them.
The Independent Schools Inspectorate report (2015) found the quality of the pupils' achievements, personal development and school leadership to be 'excellent'. In the five years to 2016, pupils at Westbourne House secured 123 scholarships to schools including Beadles, Brighton College, Canford, Eton, Lancing, Marlborough, Portsmouth Grammar School, Seaford and Wellington.
Westbourne House School is set in 100 acres of parkland less than two miles from the centre of historic Chichester on England's south coast.
We strive to create a positive and happy atmosphere in which children are encouraged to aim for excellence in work and play, to live together as members of a community and to use their free time sensibly.
The School provides a disciplined, yet happy environment where children know what is expected of them, both in the standard of their work and in their behaviour. The emphasis of the school is on catering for the needs of the individual. Classes are small and both the Headmaster and the child's Form Teacher/Tutor carefully monitor each child's progress. There are many opportunities for parents to meet staff, formally at Parents' Evenings and informally when the need arises. The Head's door is always open. Effort grades are sent home regularly, as well as informative end of term reports.
We have blended the best of the old with the best of the new; this will, we trust, result in a fully rounded education that will give strength and confidence to the child preparing for the future.
