We are delighted to announce that Vinehall is now a member of the Repton Family of Schools.

The newly appointed Vinehall Chair of Governors and Managing Director of the Repton Family of Schools, Daniel Lewis, says of the partnership: “We recognise that there is a shared educational and pastoral ethos focusing on the development of each child’s talents in order to better serve the community. This exciting collaboration will help Vinehall and Repton pre-empt the demands of a rapidly changing independent schools sector and defend against the uncertainty of political and economic factors outside of our control.”

Vinehall will continue to be an outstanding day and boarding co-educational prep school in East Sussex, and will continue to provide the exemplary educational vision and pastoral care for which the School has a strong reputation. Joff Powis, Headmaster of Vinehall, shares that: “Vinehall’s children will benefit hugely from collaboration with specialists within The Repton Family of Schools, broadening horizons both academically and in co-curricular activities of all kinds. Enhanced training and development opportunities will help us maintain the quality of the staff body.”

Headmaster of Repton School, Mark Semmence, comments: “Above all, offering outstanding educational opportunities to children remains our core purpose. Vinehall is joining a family that highly values each individual, nurturing talent to develop happy, resilient, self-motivated and confident young people. Geography plays no part in this partnership: like-mindedness does.”
