National School Reviews

  • Taunton School, Taunton

    A school for the 21st century, that wears its 150-year history lightly, embraces difference, and excels in involving all its students in a whole-person educational experience

  • The Paragon School, Bath

    A family-orientated, nurturing Prep, Pre-prep and Pre-school with wonderful woodland activities and excellent art, music and sports

  • Monkton Combe Prep School, Bath

    Muddy says: A Prep with Nursery/Kindergarten where the teaching is ambitious within a gentle pastoral setting, they keep alpacas and design their own racing cars

  • wells cathedral school

    Wells Cathedral School, Wells

    Wells has been educating cathedral choristers for over 1000 years. Today it does that and much more: excelling in sport, the arts and academics as well as giving career musicians one of the best musical educations in the world.

  • Yarrells Prep School & Nursery, Upton, nr Poole

    Muddy says: A happy, family-orientated school providing the ideal foundation for moving onto state grammars or the independent sector. So the best of both worlds, really.

  • InterHigh School

    The longest established online school in the UK for kids 7-18 has seen interest rise exponentially since Covid. So what's all the fuss about?

  • Clifton College Preparatory School, Bristol

    A super creative, stimulating all-round education for boys and girls in a school with a liberal ethos and where the parents are as much a part of the school community as the pupils

  • Leweston School, nr Sherborne

    An unpretentious, friendly school offering great all-round education with outstanding music and sports, where girls and boys can learn together – and apart – allowing them to realise their potential in every subject.

  • Sherborne Prep School

    Muddy says: Non-pushy yet achieves academically, strong on music and art and with an innovative approach to sport and fitness.

  • Bruton School for Girls, Bruton

    Muddy says: A progressive outlook combined with core values of co-operation and kindness, allows girls to reach their potential without ruthless competition or pushing

  • Kingswood Prep School and Nursery, Bath

    Muddy says: Children can be children at this co-ed prep and nursery with Scandi-style facilities and more, set in 100-acres of parklands overlooking the city
