School Reviews

  • Autumn Open Days

    We're looking ahead to the autumn term (yikes!) and getting our School Open Days diary sorted. Here's all you need to know.

  • Canford School, Canford Magna, Wimborne

    Muddy says: A pastorally and academically strong day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 13-18, in a stunning 250 acres. Its warm, vibrant community and family feel stands out.

  • Warminster Prep, Warminster

    Muddy says: The younger sibling to the co-ed day and boarding school on the edge of Salisbury Plain where bright-eyed kids and teachers exude confidence and a love of life.

  • children riding white horses

    Knighton House School, Blandford

    Muddy says: A girls' day and boarding prep (with boys up to Year 2) in an idyllic rural location, Knighton House has a wonderfully cosy feel while reaching for the stars

  • pupils sitting on lawns, Rendcomb main building in background, sunny day trees

    Rendcomb College Senior School, Cirencester

    Muddy says: It’s in a former stately home, has grounds fit for royalty and fosters happy pupils who achieve all their dreams – this mixed boarding school is like a fairy tale!

  • boys playing cricket with Salisbury Cathedral in background

    Leehurst Swan School, Salisbury

    Muddy says: Want a one-stop, pastoral education for your family? This friendly, co-ed, all through to 16 day school with a pre-school on site is small but perfectly formed.

    • aerial view of Warminster school buildings

      Warminster School, Warminster

      Muddy says: A co-ed, all-through day and boarding school on the edge of Salisbury Plain that prides itself on nurturing happy, confident and community-spirited pupils.

    • Wycliffe Prep school surrounded by Cotswold countryside

      Wycliffe Prep School

      Muddy says: Looking for a nurturing school with strong academic, sporting and extra-curricular form? This non-hot-housey co-ed for ages 2-13 could be just the ticket.

      • Port Regis Prep School, Dorset

        Muddy says: A co-ed day and boarding school for ages two to 13 - one of the great Prep schools where you'll find outstanding facilities and results, and a huge amount of fun

      • Hatherop Castle

        Muddy says: A co-ed day and boarding prep school with a strong family ethos for ages two to 13 which feels like it’s come straight out of the pages of a children’s storybook.
