Vinehall is looking to join Repton School, one of the foremost senior schools in the country.

Headmaster of Vinehall, Joff Powis, commented: “Discussions with Repton are ongoing. I know that Vinehall’s pupils would 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 our staff body, and shared use of resources will promote operational efficiencies.”

Vinehall Chair of Governors, John Giles, added: “Above all, offering outstanding educational opportunities to our children remains our common core purpose. Vinehall will maintain its identity and traditions whilst joining a family that values each individual, nurturing talent to develop happy, resilient, self-motivated and confident young people.
