The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) undertook a four-day inspection of Vinehall School’s Nursery, Pre-Prep, Prep and Boarding facilities.  The Inspectorate’s report has now been published and the school has received the highest accolade possible – “Excellent” in all areas.


The report went on to say “[Vinehall] Pupils have excellent attitudes towards learning, nurtured by high expectations and the mutually supportive, inclusive and enabling culture of the school.”


Vinehall is a co-educational day, boarding school and nursery, with 254 children aged between 2-13 years.  Vinehall has a rich curriculum, with children going on to “[gain] entry to senior schools of their choice.  Many regularly gain academic scholarships and music, performing arts and sports awards.”


Commenting on the report, Headmaster Joff Powis said “What is so deeply satisfying is that the core values of the school and the kind nature of our children were instinctively recognised and duly praised.

My gratitude must go to all of the staff at Vinehall whose loyalty and enthusiasm are at the centre of the our children’s happiness and achievement.

This booklet is intended to encapsulate areas of the report that reflect so accurately the Vinehall that we all know; and that we are excellent in all areas!”
