Summer School Westbourne

Visiting Information

Discover Westbourne for yourself

We welcome visits year round. It’s very much our belief that ‘every day is an Open Day’ and we would be delighted to introduce you to the team that helps make an education at Westbourne so very special.

The Westbourne campus is set across three core buildings, all within minutes of each other: a vibrant Prep School on Victoria Road with Little Westbourne Nursery adjoined, yet with a separate entrance on Westbourne Road; a Senior School & Sixth Form on the corner of Hickman Road; and not forgetting our Boarding House just over the road, welcoming students from the UK and across the globe. Our exciting new innovation hub launches in early 2023.
