A Place to Thrive

Founded in 1867 by visionaries with a burning desire to provide a great education for the young people of Melbourne’s west, Westbourne is a dynamic, knowledge-rich environment where a dedicated team of professional teachers empower their students and support them to be the best they can be. In seeking to instil a lifelong commitment to growth through education, the school aims to motivate and inspire, encourage deep level thinking and creativity, and communicate a powerful shared vision: Shaping Learners Who Inspire the World.

With a reputation for academic excellence and a very strong commitment to student wellbeing from the early years onwards, teaching and learning is characterised by a carefully planned, innovative curriculum that is not only academically challenging, but is also focused on developing key skills, understanding and knowledge in the core subject areas.

Westbourne has campuses in both Williamstown (Prep-Year 3) and Truganina. At Truganina, students are grouped in age-appropriate clusters: Winjeel (Prep-Year 2); the Verdon Centre (Years 3-6); the Horsburgh Centre (Years 7-8); the Geoffrey Ryan Centre (Year 9) and the Senior College (Years 10-12).

Learning to Succeed

As evidenced by the excellent 2018 VCE results, Westbourne students are busy and engaged in what they do. In addition to two perfect study scores of 50 and a median ATAR of 81.55, four students achieved an ATAR of 99.00 or above – ranking them in the top 1 per cent in the country. 

At the same time, the wide range of sporting, creative, cultural and community service activities mean that every student has an opportunity to participate. Recently completed is the new, purpose-built sports and aquatic centre with its 25 metre, eight lane heated swimming pool, weights room, dance studio and gymnasium. The very popular performing arts program includes drama, orchestra, choirs, bands, House music competition and annual musical productions.

In a world in which the knowledge economy is already wielding great influence, where people are constantly connected and where the ability to think critically and globally will be fundamental,  Westbourne Grammar understands the importance of providing its young people with the skills they will need to flourish in this exciting new world.
