Westbourne School is a truly unique provision which blends academic and vocational learning to provide the best possible outcomes for all children, regardless of ability or start point. The school is proud to offer first class vocational facilities which include mechanic and construction workshops, a hair and beauty salon, ICT suite and fully kitted catering provision. This is supported by high quality teaching rooms which provide access to fantastic ICT provision for all pupils. Our goal is to create bespoke curriculums that support the needs of each individual child, allowing them to flourish and succeed giving them the best possible opportunities in life.
As a school we understand that some of our students’ views of education may be negative and that the transition back into school life can create feelings of anxiety, uncertainty and fear. Through a holistic approach of high quality education, pastoral and therapeutic staff, we aim to remove these barriers and support each child back into school where they can be happy, safe and eager learners once again. This can only be achieved by the forging of strong working relationships between staff and students. By really getting to know each individual child, we can target our support and ensure progress both academically and socially.
To achieve these goals, success will look different for each individual child and through the use of personalised targets, we will celebrate every small step of progress made, whatever that may be.
I sincerely hope this introduction has provided a clear and understanding of what our school can offer in terms of care and education. If you would like to know more about our school and the difference we can make, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
