The most influential factor in student learning outcomes is good teaching. We care deeply about student welfare and learning. Every employee is important in helping us reach our vision and goals and every employee counts. To attract and retain motivated professionals who perform to their full potential we offer a unique employee value proposition, one that encourages and supports individual growth and achievement while also focusing on how every employee can contribute to, and benefit from, our collective strengths.
As a Westbourne Grammar employee you will enjoy a strong community culture that is inclusive, supportive and diverse; based firmly on the school’s values. You will have many opportunities to develop professionally and personally.
You will be encouraged and supported to become part of a high performance team with clear expectations through extensive professional learning, a strategic learning plan and collegiate support. You will be guided and assisted to develop your own learning plan that aligns with the school’s Mission, Vision, and Values. Working in teams, and individually, you will be an important part of Westbourne Grammar’s future and most importantly the future of the children in your care.
Our 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. We find that most Alumni choose to stay in touch partly due to the fact that we are both a private primary and secondary school. Many students spend the full extent of their schooling years with us, and therefore develop a lifelong bond.
Naturally, such a team approach to schooling results in outstanding academic results, a testimony to which are our 2013 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 considerable expansion since it established its Truganina campus in 1978, and is now embarking on an ambitious and exciting journey with our new purpose-built Amici - Westbourne 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. In comparison to many independent primary and secondary schools, our facilities are most extensive.
Shaping learners who inspire the world.
An economically independent and vibrant community that consistently provides the highest standards of excellence and innovation in learning within a stimulating and nurturing environment.
Recognising that actively building respectful and sustainable relationships with other human beings, and with our planet, builds strong social capital which, in turn, supports our wellbeing. In doing so we acknowledge our shared cultures and histories.
Encouraging behaviours which encompass notions of innovation, originality, liberation and generative problem-solving in all that we do.
Celebration of the persistent learning at a high level and the pursuit of excellence. Understanding the importance of thinking routines, self-regulation and reflection.
Developing the capacity to question without fear. Understanding that 'success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.'
