31st March 2020 — Westbourne House School in Chichester remained open last week and the teachers were looking after pupils whose parents are key workers.

Deputy Head Peter Fisher said: "It has been a privilege to be able to help our parents in this way, when we can only imagine how hard this is for all of them. Everyone has been so grateful. The children have been a joy to look after and it’s been really lovely to see new friendships developing across the age groups. We have been keeping them very busy with the help of some much-needed sunshine and they have been painting these wonderful 'keys' of support and beautiful rainbow pictures."

"Like all of us at Westbourne House School, these children, are in no doubt what an incredible job every key worker across the UK is doing and on behalf of our entire school family we are sending them a very heartfelt thank you," he added.

All that I am, everything I can be

Westbourne House School is a co-educational, boarding and day Prep, Pre-Prep and Nursery school for children aged two-and-a-half to thirteen.

At Westbourne House, we uncover the magic in each child and ensure they make the most of the world of experiences offered to them here. We develop lifelong learners, cultivate curiosity and reward initiative. Most importantly, we do this within a kind, caring and happy environment.

Westbourne House School has an outstanding reputation for all-round excellence and over 100 scholarships in the last five years - in a variety of disciplines to top-tier secondary schools - bear testament to that.  However, this isn’t how we measure achievements here: we see success as achieving personal bests and being the best that YOU can be. Children often exceed their expectations.

The Independent Schools Inspectorate report (2015) found the quality of the pupils' achievements, personal development and school leadership to be 'excellent'.
