School Life

Extra Curricular


We offer a full sports programme for children of every age to help develop teamwork and set new challenges, as well as to burn off excess energy! The school has access to the excellent dry and wet weather sporting facilities of the Moreton-in-Marsh Fire College. The children swim, play cricket, football, tag rugby, floorball (indoor hockey), rounders, netball, cross country running and tennis. All classes swim weekly at the Fire College.


Drama is an important part of life at Dormer House and all children will be ‘on stage’ taking part in a production at least once a year. Private drama lessons can be used to aid confidence, improve speech and even help the child through the more difficult times in their lives when they may need to express anger or frustration in a safe environment. Most of the children go on to do the LAMDA Speech and Drama exams but the benefits gained by these lessons are, more often than not, those which are not tested.

Current drama lesson fees can be found here.


All children have music lessons as part of their curriculum. These sessions are a lively introduction to the world of musical instruments and include rhythm, timing, tuned percussion and note value. They can also serve as an early indicator of musical talent. The earliest private lessons start in Year 1. We currently offer tuition on the recorder, flute, clarinet, saxophone, piano, violin, classical guitar, electric guitar, drums and vocals.

Current music lesson fees can be found here.

The list varies from term to term and year to year and is dependent upon supply and demand.
