Welcome to Polwhele House

A word from the Headmistress at Polwhele House

 

At Polwhele House we believe that children deserve far more than just a good education.  Our school is set in a safe and beautiful 30 acre site on the outskirts of Truro, giving the advantages of learning in both the countryside and the city.  This location means that we can deliver a unique curriculum embracing indoor and outdoor education and enhancing every aspect of each child’s life experiences.

We aim to develop responsible, compassionate, dynamic individuals, with secure confidence in their own personal strength and a determination to develop their talents and passions.

Our staff are experienced professionals who believe that the needs of each child must be met both in the classroom and outside.  Children have the opportunity to extend their learning, play sport both in-house and against other schools, take part in performances and pursue their interests.  Those with a particular ability in the Performing Arts or Equestrianism can develop these skills and even become a Polwhele House Scholar, spending additional time refining their skills and expertise within the school day.

At Polwhele House, children can be children: enjoying the outdoors, playing and developing the skills of co-operation and leadership in a safe, caring environment.

There is no better way of understanding our ethos and unique facilities than coming to visit us and looking around our school.  Please do contact the School Office and I shall be delighted to show you the school of which we are all so proud.
