Performing Arts Scholarship Launched at Polwhele House


Polwhele House has launched a new performing arts scholarship in partnership with Jason Thomas Performing Arts, meaning talented performers in the region could be eligible for a bursary plus a range of other opportunities.

The scholarship was launched to complement the wide range of opportunities in dance, music, drama and musical theatre at the school. 

Headmaster of Polwhele House, Alex McCullough, is delighted to offer the opportunity, saying:

“It is important to us at Polwhele House to recognise talent in the arts alongside academic achievements. We offer a range of opportunities for our children – including tuition, lessons and extra-curricular sessions and our regular performances are always well received. We hope the scholarship will promote the importance of the performing arts and help talented children achieve their aspirations.”

The scholarship will allow pupils to receive over 8 hours of tuition in performing arts per week, alongside representing the school in competitions and performances, participate in workshops with specialists and develop their leadership skills and personal progression. 

Jason Thomas Performing Arts is a well-established dance school based in Cornwall, which has been providing training for students for the last 17 years with many going on to attend prestigious dance schools around the world. 

Founder Jason Thomas said:

“We already have a great relationship with Polwhele House, so we are excited about the opportunity to offer the scholarship and help young performers develop their passion. Dance, drama and music are extremely prevalent in Cornwall, but there aren’t always opportunities for young people to expand their skills and progress towards a career in the industry. It is brilliant that together we can now offer this for children within the region.”
