Muddy Stilettos Best Schools Review
'A friendly, outdoorsy prep with smart facilities in a super location in stunning High Weald countryside, and a holistic and forward-thinking ethos that puts pupils at the heart.'

Many parents are attracted to Vinehall as a rural prep school, but it’s more than this. “I had to send my children there,' said one mum. 'It was the combination of intellectual curiosity and [their] interest in the children.'
'Learning is evidently rigorous too: year 1 were learning how to structure an essay, and insert the right key words; a year 2 maths class were diligent and industrious. ‘They get really good results, but don’t feel stressed and pressurised,’ said a parent.'

RHS School Gardening Award
Vinehall has been awarded the RHS Level 5 School Gardening Award, the highest achievement in the Royal Horticultural Society’s School Gardening Awards scheme.
As a school we have been working our way through the various levels over the past 18 months, embedding horticulture, nature and growing into our school life through the planting of an orchard, construction of a new vegetable garden, introduction of new gardening clubs and activities throughout the school, and culminating in our first horticultural whole school event – Vinehall’s Apple Day.
Rachel Borrows, our School Horticulturist, said:
‘I have been delighted with the enthusiasm and support shown by the whole school community for the various initiatives we have introduced. The children have embraced the opportunity to get dirt under their nails, whilst developing their practical horticultural skills and understanding of environmental issues.’
