At LEH we encourage our girls to embrace everything the Junior School has to offer. Whether girls are developing their talents, finding new hobbies or enjoying time meeting and making new friends, our varied and exciting extra-curricular programme keeps everyone busy!

And there is something on offer for everyone at LEH, whether it is music, sport, chess, debating, yoga, STEM club or languages (to name but a few!), our extra- curricular programme is a popular and important part of life at LEH Junior School.

Extra-curricular activities run at lunchtimes and after school and are led by our own teachers as well as visiting coaches and specialists. Full details of all our activities can be found in the Extra-curricular Club booklet.


A wide variety of instruments are taught by our team of dedicated Visiting Music Teachers. Instrumental lessons offered include piano, violin, cello, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, French Horn, harp, guitar, singing and percussion.

Many pupils take Associated Board instrumental exams and a good proportion of instrumentalists play in school ensembles.

Giving and getting involved

At LEH we want our girls to become good global citizens with an understanding and awareness of the local community and the world around them. We are fully committed to supporting local and national charities and in recent years have raised money for Children with Cancer UK, NSPCC, Guide Dogs for The Blind, Muscular Dystrophy UK, British Legion and Children in Need. 

Every year our girls help to organise and take part in fundraising events such as cake sales, raffles, dress up days and a sponsored danceathon to name but a few!
