Vinehall School Future Schools Evening

Image

Victoria, Pippa and I visited Vinehall School yesterday evening for the Future Schools Evening. We were delighted to be able to give a presentation to parents on preparing for senior school with particular reference to our recent publication “Prepare your Daughter for Boarding” and to answer questions from enthusiastic parents.
After the presentation we had the opportunity to meet more parents as well as representatives of senior schools from across the south who exhibited at the Future School Evening and to introduce them to the workshops that Prep4 is planning for this year. Good connections were made all round and we look forward to following up. Graham Lee

Prepare your Daughter for Boarding – The launch party

Richard Harman, Victoria Davies Jones & Hugh Davies Jones edited 2Educational giants including incoming Chairman of the HMC and Headmaster of Uppingham, Richard Harman, (pictured here with Hugh Davies Jones and Victoria) and John Baugh, Headmaster of Oxford’s Dragon School mingled with a lively crowd from every walk of Boarding school life to launch educational consultancy Prep4’s new book “Prepare your Daughter for Boarding” by Victoria Davies Jones. The book is prefaced by Claire Oulton, Headmistress of Benenden and holder of Tatler’s 2013 Lifetime Achievement award. Victoria’s daughter Sophie was let out of school for the evening to prove her mother’s good advice while Marina Byrne, Tilly Browne and Bella Grubb shared stories of their boarding school days rather freely with staff and parents! The wine flowed at the Elysee in Percy Street, London’s oldest Greek restaurant, but luckily Victoria’s guidance on boarding do’s and don’ts was well heeded and the evening ended without any broken china.
