School Reviews

  • St John’s, Sidmouth

    An international day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 2-16 located on a hill overlooking the sea in the safe, seaside town of Sidmouth. Non-selective, non-pressure and pastorally excellent, there’s a strong family feel.

    Blundell’s School, Tiverton, Devon

    Muddy says: A co-ed prep and senior school set in 90 acres, with a distinguished 400 year history steeped in trad values and modern teaching; the Blundell's blend works.

  • West Buckland School, Barnstaple

    Muddy says: A nurturing, non-hothousey co-ed day and boarding school in bucolic North Devon with acres of healthy air coast and countryside on its doorstep.

  • Muddy Best Schools Guide: St Petroc’s, Bude

    Muddy says: I've just endured the 'will we get our chosen school'? bottom-clencher for the first time and I get what a big deal it is to send the kids packing on their educational journey. In the coming months, I'll be featuring some trusted, honest, typically Muddy Guides to Devon's best schools, including some that lurk on the Devon/Cornwall border, like St Petroc's in Bude. Take it away Muddy Cornwall!
