Education

  • Moulsford School, Moulsford

    Muddy says: A highly-regarded boy’s prep school in South Oxon in a stonkingly lovely setting on the Thames, with a strong reputation for sport and extracurricular activities.

  • Chandlings School, Bagley Wood, Oxford

    Muddy says: A warm, friendly prep school just outside Oxford, set in 60 lovely acres of land. A hidden gem amongst Oxford's more shouty preps - but for how long?

  • How to help your child nail exam revision

    Mocks exams are coming up and this year, they could be rather vital in determining final grades. Want your kid to get some revision advice? Well, look no further.

  • Tudor Hall, Banbury, North Oxon

    Muddy says: An small, friendly girl’s secondary boarding/ day school in North Oxon in a beautiful location, there's a welcome emphasis on 'joining in' and good manners.

  • Carrdus School, near Banbury, Oxon

    Muddy says: A small, intimate, 'family' oriented prep school, Carrdus School near Banbury is a good option for those who resolutely don't want to hot-house their kids.

  • St Edward’s School

    Muddy says: Looking for a city school? St Edward's School in Summertown, Oxford is a corker, with half of the cohort taking the IB rather than A-levels. Read on for the Muddy verdict.

  • Stowe School’s life-changing Change 100 project is a go

    Know a truly talented child who could be a future change maker? The illustrious Stowe School in Bucks is embarking on a hugely ambitious, altruistic project to help fund 100 student places a year for those who desperately need it.

  • Ashfold School, Dorton, Mid Bucks

    Muddy says: This bucolic co-ed prep school for day pupils and boarders in the rolling hills of Buckinghamshire is family-oriented with a deserved reputation for its all-rounder offering.

  • Rye St Antony School, Nr Headington, Oxford

    Muddy says: A day/boarding school for girls 3-18 and boys 3-11 years a mile from central Oxford with a reputation for friendliness and a non-hothousy environment.

  • Kingham Hill School, North Oxon

    Muddy says: An idyllically placed co-ed, non-selective secondary school with a strong Christian ethos, set in 100 acres of Cotswolds countryside.
