  • 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

    Hard to find fault with this lovely co-ed prep school on the Bucks/Northants borders - a family vibe, pretty rural setting and great results.

    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.

    Looking for a school that puts huge emphasis on pastoral care, nurturing and personal development? Say hello to this bijou day and boarding school for girls in central Oxford.

  • Ashfold School, Dorton, Mid Bucks
