School Reviews

  • 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-acre of parklands overlooking the city

  • Prior Park College, Bath

    Muddy says: This independent co-ed senior school may have a grand setting but the education is far from grandiose: it's down-to-earth, holistic and with happiness and wellbeing at the core.

  • Downside School

    Muddy says: This Catholic day and boarding school with Benedictine values may be steeped in history and tradition but is keeping ahead of the game

  • Hanford

    Muddy says: A true idyll of childhood, it's Hanford all the way for a quirky, quintessentially English girls boarding school in the heart of the rolling countryside

  • Clayesmore Prep School

    Muddy says: I've been eager to snoop around this fab co-ed school for yonks, and boy, was it worth the wait! Set in the most to-die-for surroundings, Clayesmore Prep is a school with a real family feel
