Education

  • St Edward’s School

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

  • 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.

  • Rye St Antony School, Nr Headington, Oxford

    Muddy says: A non-selective 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.

  • 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.

    Thorpe House School, Gerrards Cross

  • 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.

    Winchester House School, Brackley, Northants

    An excellent non-selective co-ed day and boarding school (3-13 yrs) on the Bucks/Oxon/Northants borders with a strong all-rounder reputation and an impressive head.

  • Children and tech: an alternative view

    Tech often gets a bad rap - see how it beguiles our children into gaming for 8 hours a day, for starters. But a recent interview made me see things a little differently - and it might do the same for you.

  • Bloxham School, nr Banbury

    Muddy says: Bloxham School is an impressive co-ed day/boarding for kids 11-18 in a pretty North Oxfordshire, with a reputation for all-rounder education.
