Discover this leading independent school

Set within 47 acres of East Sussex countryside near Robertsbridge is Vinehall School – a leading co-educational day, boarding school and nursery providing an outstanding education for children between the ages of 2 and 13.

The school produces children who are not only academically strong, but instils in them a strong sense of purpose and self-confidence, the courage to face their challenges and the determination to persevere – preparing them to face the challenges and flourish in our ever-changing world.

The facilities at Vinehall are second to none. The grounds are fringed with woodland, with numerous sports pitches, including a large astro and a 15-metre indoor swimming pool. There is also a nine-hole golf course, zip wires, a fishing lake and a mountain bike track all on site.

Along with the purpose-built centre for Pre Prep and Nursery, the Prep School is housed in the 19th-century country house, with modern classrooms and state of the art library and IT suites. They have their own art, design and technology centres, a music school, science labs, along with a 270-seat theatre.

Vinehall have an outstanding record for placing their children at their first choice of senior schools. Each year a high percentage of their leavers achieve 13+ scholarship success, winning Academic Scholarships to schools including Eastbourne, King’s Canterbury and Tonbridge, along with many scholarships being awarded in Sport, Drama, Music and Art.

Last summer Vinehall joined the Repton Family of Schools. At the time, the school’s Headmaster, Joff Powis, told the Times: “This is an exciting moment in Vinehall’s rich history. Whilst the fabric of our School – our dedicated staff, values, picturesque location, uniform and name – will all remain the same, becoming part of the Repton Family of Schools marks a new and exciting era as we join a global network of world-class schools.”

Repton, which was established in 1557, already has two prep schools within the UK – Repton Prep and St Wystan’s School, and seven schools internationally, with a further three due to open in the next few years. Repton has established a growing family of schools, both internationally and here in UK, that share an outward-looking, forward-thinking philosophy focused on giving children the very best chances in the world that awaits them.

Vinehall’s educational philosophy is already closely aligned with Repton’s and this move will enable Vinehall to continue to ensure outstanding provision, bolster admissions and safeguard the School’s future and traditions.
