Muddy Best Schools Guide

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Pipers Corner, Chilterns

    Muddy says: Facilities and green space to make you swoon at this high-achieving school for girls 4-18 years in Buckinghamshire's idyllic Chiltern Hills.

  • 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.

  • Caldicott School, Farnham Royal

    Set next to Burnham Beeches nature reserve in leafy South Bucks, Caldicott offers a homely atmosphere whilst still nailing it as a top feeder school to both Eton and Harrow.

  • Winchester front of house gardens sunshine blue sky exterior

    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.

  • 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.

  • modern school building with grass and trees in front

    The Manor Preparatory School, Abingdon

    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.

  • Cothill House School, Abingdon

    Muddy says: A homely but high achieving boys boarding school, set in 26 lovely acres near Abingdon, South Oxfordshire. The emphasis is on 'fit' here, and allowing boys to be boys.

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