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.
Welcome back to the second half of Spring Term.
Our next Parent Engagement Day is on Friday 20th March (details to follow).
Our ASPIRE Vineyard Value for this half term is being 'Self-Aware’.
When we are self-aware, we understand ourselves and the role we play in our community.
In PSHE this half term, from Reception to Year 6, we will be thinking about 'Healthy Me'.
The importance of sleep, diet, exercise and relaxation will be discussed in our lessons.
We would like to remind our parents and carers that our classroom doors open at 8:45am. Children are welcomed by their class teachers who have an array of 'soft-start' tasks for them to dive into, including maths, grammar and mindfulness activities.
The Year 2's have been burning down the house!
The Green Team needs bottle caps!
Our Year 6 pupils took part in their cycling proficiency training during a rather damp but mild January.
Former pupils Mike O'Sullivan and Ellie Roper reflect on Vinyeard life in the 1950s.
