Westbourne offers the best education mix of international and English GCSEs and the International Baccalaureate, recognised globally as the ‘gold standard’ in secondary education. All Westbourne graduates obtain a place at their first choice university, with 65% gaining places at Russell Group universities and 60% going on to study medicine, law or engineering.
Westbourne is located in the safe and affluent seaside town of Penarth, ranked by the Sunday Times as one of the Top 10 best places to live in the UK, just 10 minutes from the modern and vibrant centre of Cardiff.

With 83% local students, complemented with first class scholars from around the world, Westbourne has a distinctly British character with an avowedly global outlook. The boarding house of 35 students feels more like a large family than an ‘institutional establishment’. Westbourne is 2 hours from Heathrow and Paddington and 20 minutes from Cardiff Airport, with excellent connections through Amsterdam, Paris, Munich and Milan.
