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

  • 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?

  • Bruern Abbey School, Bicester

    The only prep school in the country whose main goal is helping boys with learning difficulties (primarily dyslexia) to get into mainstream independent senior schools. It works!

    Beachborough School, near Brackley
