Students get the chance to pit their chess skills against fellow students and other schools.  The St Paul’s Chess Club is fully equipped with match size chess sets and clocks. It also boasts an outdoor, full size chess set for students to access at lunchtimes which is played by Junior, Middle and Senior School students.


Dance is a pursuit that has a long tradition at St Paul’s School. The combination of state-of-the-art facilities (The Walker Centre) and a close relationship with Dance Directions has afforded many students the chance to flourish through training and performance. Dance can be engaged with through direct involvement with Dance Directions and also through curricular opportunities in the Junior School and as an elective in Years 7, 8 and 9.
