Westbourne Grammar School is an independent, co-educational, non-denominational School with over 1,500 students. We are a K-12 School and we have a very proud and rich history, with our 150th Sesquicentenary approaching in 2017. At Westbourne Grammar School, we operate a fully integrated educational curriculum across two separate campuses, one at Williamstown and the other at Truganina in Melbourne’s west. The School structure is based on an ELC, Junior and Senior School model, with each level having its own special precinct and Head of School to ensure student needs are properly supported at each level.

For close to 150 years, Westbourne Grammar School has developed an enviable reputation for the independent, co-educational experience we provide, and for our outstanding academic results. Steeped in history and tradition, we are renowned in Melbourne for providing quality education to students from more than 35 different nationalities.

What sets Westbourne apart from all other independent schools is the unique community. It really is a school for the whole family. Our culture is one of students, teachers and parents all working together to create a safe, caring and nurturing environment that makes the school experience more enjoyable.

We also have a remarkably strong Alumni group at Westbourne with more than 6,500 members who we see as our advocates and ambassadors, our loyal supporters and our lifelong friends.

Naturally, such a team approach to schooling results in outstanding academic results, a testimony to which are our VCE results.

Our Year 9 students learn at a special, purpose-built facility at our Truganina Campus which provides a unique educational environment and learning experience that has been specifically designed to prepare and equip students for their final years in Senior School.

Looking ahead, Westbourne Grammar School has undertaken great expansion since it established its Truganina campus in 1978, and is now embarking on an ambitious and exciting journey with a new purpose-built Early Learning Centre (inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach). We have also recently completed the new Ray Horsburgh Centre which is truly a remarkable facility, as well as a new Sports and Aquatic Centre being built for 2017: in time to celebrate our 150th birthday.

Students at Westbourne study a varied curriculum composed of traditional core subjects, as well as areas geared toward their own individual interests and talents.

We believe every child has the right to an individualised education which caters to their specific needs. We maximise the learning opportunities for every learner from Prep to Year 12 and, in the process, deliver excellent outcomes for students.

Our staff are dedicated to developing diverse, engaging teaching approaches tailored to the needs of each individual. The school is committed to equipping students with the cutting edge skills and knowledge necessary for them to flourish and to become the innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders of the future.
