Muddy Best Schools Guide

  • Headington Prep School, Oxford

    A stone's throw from Oxford city centre, Headington Prep is a smart, selective, bijoux all-girls' school that handily feeds into the super-popular Senior school across the road.

  • Beachborough front of house exterior blue sky brown bricks

    Beachborough School, near Brackley

    Muddy says: 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.

  • 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.

  • modern school building with grass and trees in front

    Check out my update on this highly-regarded day school in Abingdon with fantastic ISI reports (excellent across the board) for kids 2-11 years old.

  • 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.

  • d’Overbroeck’s, Oxford

    d'Overbroeck's in Oxford has a first name policy, progressive curriculum, a dedicated Sixth Form campus and a whole clutch of brilliant results. Impressed.

  • Dragon School, Oxford

    One of the biggest co-ed boarding schools in the UK, the Dragon in the centre of Oxford roars with its results and its A-list alumni

  • 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!

  • St Mary’s School, Henley, Oxfordshire

    Muddy says: Looking for Oxfordshire primary schools? Check out this small, nurturing, high-achieving co-ed option in central Henley.

  • Stowe School, Stowe, Buckinghamshire

    A stunning setting across 750 acres, incredible facilities and a growing reputation for its academics has put all-rounder co-ed Stowe School on must-see lists.
