National School Reviews

  • Beacon Boys

    The Beacon School, Amersham

    The largest single sex prep school in the UK, The Beacon still has an impressively inclusive, family feel to it, with a focus on pastoral care and turning out well-rounded boys.

  • Godstowe

    This small day and boarding school for girls strikes the perfect balance between a stellar academic record and a nurturing, inclusive environment.

    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?

  • Thornton College, Milton Keynes

    A peaceful rural setting and nurturing ethos underpins this high-achieving all girls school 3-18 in North Buckinghamshire

  • High March School, Beaconsfield

    Small but perfectly formed, this non-selective pre- and prep school in well-heeled Beaconsfield puts pastoral care and happiness at the top of the agenda.

  • Queen Anne’s, Caversham

    Muddy says: A dynamic girls' day and boarding school that's revolutionising the way teens are taught. Set in 34 acres it boasts 'wow' facilities, results and a cool sixth form centre.

  • 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.

  • Oxford Sixth Form College

    Muddy says: A super-central college that specialises in single year GSCEs, B-TECS, A-levels and retakes, with a large cohort of international students.

  • Royal Masonic School for Girls, Rickmansworth

    A girls' day and boarding school with stellar results, that's perfectly placed for Herts and Bucks but also deliciously close to London.

  • Summer Fields School, North Oxford

    Muddy says: A top pre prep and prep day and boarding school for boys with small pupil numbers and whopper facilities, hidden away in 70 stunning acres leading to the Cherwell River.
