Westbourne Section

Westbourne School was founded in 1877 as Westbourne Gardens School and owed much in the early days to the Levack sisters, who hoped ‘to produce young women with as much good influence in matters of morals, speech and elegant living as seemed possible’.

The Levack sisters are commemorated in the Levack Biology laboratory in today’s Glasgow Academy.

In 1991, Westbourne merged with the Glasgow Academy.

The External Relations Department at the Glasgow Academy is home to a significant amount of memorabilia, including Dux and Head Girl boards and the formal portrait of Mrs Henderson (1936 – 1964).

Former pupils will receive a very warm welcome, should they wish to visit the External Relations Department.

The success of the two recent ‘Grand Reunions’ bears witness to the warm affection felt towards Westbourne by its former pupils.

The External Relations team is now in touch with over 1,000 former Westbourne pupils.

If you are not yet in that number, please contact the team so that you can receive regular updates and information on forthcoming events etc…
