History Of The School

Westwood International School has been operating since May 1988, and began as a grassroots effort in early 1987 among the business, professional and diplomatic communities resident in Gaborone, who wished to create and secure places for their children in a quality English-Medium school.


Founded in Gaborone

The founders of the School include:

  • The American Embassy
  • The British High Commission
  • Barclays Bank of Botswana
  • Sefalana Group
  • Inco Holdings
  • Maru A Pula Secondary School
  • Debswana Diamond Company
  • Senn Foods


Moved to Gaborone West

The school operated until December 1992 on a temporary site on a corner of Maru-a-pula School, and moved to its current location – on a 46,000 SQM plot in Gaborone West, Phase 4, along the main Lobatse Road.


Community with nationalities from 39 countries

The overall purpose of the school is to provide an international standard of education to children of all backgrounds. The school community includes children from over 37 different countries with approximately 55% Batswana. The school hires a well-qualified and diverse professional staff from around the world.
