  Performing Arts scholarship launch
Polwhele House School, Cornwall, has launched a new performing arts scholarship to provide talented performers in the region eligibility for a bursary plus a range of other opportunities.
Headmaster Alex McCullough, said: “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.
The scheme is run in association with Jason Thomas Performing Arts, 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.
In tune
As part of Bromsgrove School’s ongoing commitment to the Performing Arts, the School has taken receipt of a state-of-the-art concert grand piano featuring sophisticated VC technology and an independent Capo d’Astro for perfect adjustment in the descant registry. There are less than 100 such instruments across the world.
