Committed to living its vision and values Westbourne Grammar School’s shared philosophy rests on the foundation of a strong moral purpose.


Shaping Learners Who Inspire the World.


An economically independent and vibrant community that consistently provides the highest standards of excellence and innovation within a stimulating and nurturing environment.



Recognising that actively building respectful and sustainable relationships with other human beings and with our planet builds strong social capital, which in turn, supports our wellbeing. In doing so we acknowledge our shared cultures and histories.


Encouraging behaviours which encompass notions of innovation, originality, liberation and generative problem-solving in all that we do.


Celebration of persistent learning at a high level and the pursuit of excellence. Understanding the importance of thinking routines, self-regulation and reflection.


Developing the capacity to question without fear. Understanding that ‘success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.’
