Welcome to Polwhele House

A word from the headmaster at Polwhele House

At Polwhele House we are passionate about education. We believe that the right education sets children off on the path of self-discovery; it prepares them to take their place in the world.

The right education also creates a life-long love of learning. Academically, we combine high class modern teaching methods with the best of traditional values to create a climate where every child can flourish.

Polwhele House is a happy, family school. It’s a place where childhood is cherished; learning is fun; and community is paramount.

We aim to nurture and challenge our children; we recognise that children need to be guided but also given the freedom to think for themselves and develop a true sense of self.

Do visit Polwhele House and experience the sight, sound and feel of children enjoying their work and play.

Chris Curl
HEADMASTER
