Boarding has always been an integral part of Vinehall life and we recognise that many working parents need additional support from the school, whilst at the same time giving children the chance to learn the importance of independence with their friends in a safe and caring environment.
‘Vinehall 24’ is a flexible boarding solution allowing families the opportunity to reserve a regular space for however many nights a week suit their situation. Vinehall 24 offers supervised prep, a hot cooked supper, an evening activity and a bedtime snack followed by a family style cooked breakfast the following morning.
Vinehall 24 is open to all children from Year 3 up and children staying regularly will be in the same dorm with their same friends. Whilst priority will go to the regular children, we will always do our best to ensure occasional ‘24’ boarders get their first choice of which dorm they are in as well, depending on space.
BOARDING BAGS To make life as easy as possible for boarders, all children choosing the ‘24’ option will be supplied with a boarding kit bag, with their name on, which will enable all personal belongings to be left in the boarding house ready for the next time they stay over. This will hopefully make it easier and will involve less lugging about of duvets and personal items each time your child stays.
Vinehall 24 flexi boarding option £35 per session
We will still be offering the supper only option (6.30pm pick up) which remains at a cost of £6 per time.
We really hope by making these changes to boarding at Vinehall it will help support our families as the children go through the school year. It also offers an easy solution for parents who may have social or work engagements and we would like for the care being offered to be considered as a first option for a lot of our families.
