Creating a ‘Stand-Out’ school
Igniting a life-long love of learning

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to The Vineyard School. Nestled at the top of Richmond Hill and situated within stunning grounds and first class facilities, The Vineyard has been proudly educating locally in Richmond for over 160 years, finding its final home on our current school site here on Friars Stile Road.

An education at The Vineyard is holistic. We have built a bespoke knowledge-rich, skills-led curriculum which provides stretch and challenge for all. We inspire pupils to reach their full potential and actively make a positive difference to the lives of others. We expect our children to explore the extraordinary number of enriching opportunities on offer and reach for the highest standards in all that they do - in their character and behaviour for learning, as well as their academic outcomes. We are immensely proud of their achievements and in equal measure we celebrate their outstanding academic results, future school destinations, excellence in the performing arts, sporting endeavours and service to others. With hard work, effort and fortitude, there is a strong belief that there is no limit to what can be achieved.

Monday 23rd March 2020 – School is CLOSED for the foreseeable future.

Please read the school closure letter that was sent on Friday 20th March

From Monday 23rd March school will be closed to all pupils apart from children of key workers and other select groups. DO NOT arrive at school unless you have received a confirmation of a place through Mrs Whymark as you will be sent home. Please remember the 'social distancing' guidance from the government - children should not be mixing or meeting up across different families - everyone should stay at home. This is to limit the spread of the virus across our nation at this time.
