we're trying to decide on which school is best for our children, and feel like we're spinning in circles. We are looking at Vinehall, St Ronans, Claremont and Marlborough House. Our preference was VH, but we have concerns that the school has diminished over recent years and does not challenge the children academically. We also understand there are more leavers than joiners. Does anyone have any inside insight they can offer ? We really don't want to have to move 2 years down the line. Thoughts on all the schools from anyone with actual exposure would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, both of my children are at Claremont. My DS is at the Senior in Bodiam and loves it. My DD is still in the prep. They have both been through all departments of the school from nursery upwards. If there is anything specific you'd like to know regarding the school, which is outstanding in my opinion then please private message me.

We have good knowledge of Vinehall, Dulwich, St Ronan's and Marlborough House. There are certainly bad reports coming from the parents with Children at Vinehall and these issues seem to be getting worse and worse under the new HT. The other three are excellent. If you are looking for pushy driven academic then Dulwich. For good education where in a slightly more relaxed atmosphere then St Ronan's. For excellent education and a great all round culture then Marlborough House.
