Leading this active, skilled and caring community of staff and students is a huge privilege, one that brings with it the responsibility of providing the best, most comprehensive education possible for the young people in our care.
In an era of ever-increasing social, technological and cultural change, Westbourne is both outward-looking and focused on the learning outcomes and overall wellbeing of every student. Because many of these students will be working in jobs that do not yet exist, it will be attributes such as deep level thinking, creativity and imagination that will underpin their success. Added to that, their ability to ask important questions, make judgements and use knowledge in new situations will empower them in a twenty-first century workplace increasingly focused on problem solving, teamwork, innovation and initiative.
It is in this context that Westbourne’s strong moral purpose, a conviction that every child can succeed, is fundamental to all that we strive to achieve.

I came to Westbourne in 2015 for Year 8. Straight away I felt included and cared for. Since then, the thing that stands out to me the most about Westbourne is the culture of celebrating not only success but also the chance to try heaps of new things and have a go at something you wouldn’t normally do.
I’ve always been very sporty and Westbourne provides so many opportunities all year round. This is a part of my schooling I’ve always loved. Being able to get involved in a whole range of different sports as well as other new activities like learning to play chess has been fantastic.
My teachers have also played a major role in making my time at Westbourne so rewarding. They have been willing to go that extra mile to help me with my studies and have encouraged me to follow my passions. For me, Westbourne has given me experiences that have shaped the person I am today. I know that the friendships I have made will last a lifetime.
