    Muddy says: From nursery to Sixth Form, this co-ed city school has the best of all worlds – a rigorous curriculum, diverse group of students and acres of grounds

  • Is an independent school right for you?

    Choosing a school for your child can be one of the most important decisions of your parenting life, but have you considered going private?

    ... and nope, exam results are not one of them! Here's the insider scoop on choosing the best school for your child from Alastair Speers, inspiring Head of Sandroyd School.

  • Pinewood School

    Muddy says: Top marks go to this seriously family-friendly education for boys and girls aged 3-13, in acres of rolling countryside on the edge of The Cotswolds

  • Like kids in a candy shop

    We came, we made candy, and we left on a high. And it had nothing to do with the sugar. The workshops at Spun Candy are loads of fun for all ages.

  • Girls in STEM

    In celebration of International Women's Day and British Science Week, Natalie Johnston, Head of Teaching and Learning at Rendcomb College, tells us how this progressive all-through school is championing girls in STEM

  • Clayesmore Senior School

    Muddy says: Set in the most bucolic countryside and with a main building that is oh-so-pleasing to the eye, there's a lot more to Clayesmore than its setting

  • Godolphin School

    Muddy says: An inspiring day and boarding school on the outskirts of Salisbury, perfect for girls aged 3-18 with a serious ‘can-do’ attitude

  • Walks, jaunts (and pubs)
