What The Good Schools Guide says..
If a pig could talk, should you eat it? Does a dog know it’s a dog? These are lessons that children here wrestle with. 'I’m concerned that we teach children to jump through hoops. But do they think for themselves?'...
What the school says...
Vinehall is a school with a very friendly family feel, mixing family values with a modern, forward-looking approach, promoting a positive, 'have-a-go' attitude and strong communication skills. There are plenty of opportunities to take on responsibility and there is an active school council. The atmosphere is friendly and purposeful and all kinds of achievements are celebrated so that each child can feel valued within the community. The school provides outstanding facilities, including a theatre, gymnasium, a magnificent sports hall, indoor swimming pool, golf course, all-weather pitch, 50 acres of grounds in the beautiful Sussex countryside and an impressive library. Boarding is a popular option especially in the final two years and the door is open to highly sought after places in major Public Schools when children move on at thirteen. The school's musical and artistic traditions are strong, with plenty of opportunities for performance and display. The sporting record is excellent and all pupils are encouraged to represent the school. Although non-selective, academic standards are high, and Vinehall is proud of its outstanding scholarship record to a range of well-known Public Schools. A beautifully designed, purpose-built nursery and pre-prep are on site close to the main building. ...Read more
