Extra curriculum

At Polwhele House, we want children to develop as wide a range of interests and hobbies as possible in order that they may find new ways to excel. For children in Years 3 to 8, committed staff and specialist coaches come together to provide quite a list of extra-curricular options.

We also make use of our extensive and impressive grounds with seasonal clubs such as outdoor creative writing; gardening; kitchen garden; pioneers; rugby; football; cricket; rounders; tennis; netball; hockey and athletics.

Music & Dance

Dance lessons can be chosen on Fridays, when a professional teacher visits to deliver lessons to those who love to perform.

Peripatetic music teachers deliver instrumental lessons from piano and voice to guitar and drums. Other than the harp, we can deliver lessons in most instruments!


Riding lessons happen during school time or on Saturday mornings.

After school clubs

After School Clubs range from Rugby and Jiu Jitsu to Russian and Gardening. Every term is different and children can choose before term starts. Some Clubs are very popular, though, so it’s a good idea to book early.

Before heading off to After School Clubs, children have tea in the Conservatory to make sure they have enough energy to make the most of the Club they are attending.

There is always the option of Late Club, which offers activities for children until 17.30, in familiar surroundings with well-known staff members,
