Westbourne prides itself on its commitment to extra-curricular clubs. A strength of the school is the large and varied number of clubs and activities that run before school, at lunchtime and after school. All clubs are run free of charge by members of staff. This unique relationship between staff and children has helped to develop trust, a genuine sense of belonging and a real feeling of being part of the Westbourne community. Over 80% of children attend at least a club which demonstrates the positive attitude of children and parents towards clubs. Feedback from parents, teachers and children highlight the many benefits of attending a club, such as: teamwork, resilience, self-esteem and confidence.

Westbourne has achieved the Gold Kitemark Award for the fifth time this school year. The Gold Kitemark Award is a recognition of the outstanding school's and pupils' participation in sport, in competitions and in the many extra-curricular clubs that are on offer to pupils throughout the whole school. The school also has a Sports Council which aids and supports children's learning, letting the children make important decisions with the assistance of staff. This is a great role for the children and is vitally important as pupils thoughts and opinions are shared and listened to.
