Westbourne Academy is part of the family of Academy Transformation Trust academies.

Our mission is to transform learning, aspirations and opportunities for all our pupils, and the communities in which they live.

We believe that every child matters and deserves a first class education. We believe everyone has hidden potential to be uncovered and nurtured.

Our extensive family of primary and secondary academies are based in the Midlands, East of England and South East.

Future Developments

Our resources are obviously limited and so we are concentrated on improving the teaching and learning environment and facilities for our students and staff, as opposed to any major building projects.

Examples include:

  • Replacing substandard classroom furniture, blinds etc
  • Replacing warn or damaged carpets
  • Improving the reliability and capacity of our ICT infrastructure
  • The redecoration of classrooms and corridors
  • Replacing old light fittings with more energy efficient units
