School Reviews

  • 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?

  • old building with clock tower blue sky

    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.

  • white building blue sky pink flowers grass

    Kingsley School, Bideford

    This co-ed all-through school in Bideford, with an excellent Learning Support Centre, is warm, caring and fun above all; and with happy kids comes excellent results.

    Muddy says: An academic curriculum, an innovative approach to sport and fitness, ace art and music – makes for a genuinely good all-rounder independent school for 2–18 year olds

  • Exterior

    Millfield Prep, Glastonbury

    Muddy says: this famously sporty school isn't only for future Olympians but if you have the potential, the opportunities are there for the taking. Whatever your talent, the school aims to winkle it out and help it flourish

    Perrott Hill Prep, nr Crewkerne

    Muddy says: this is a small co-ed prep school with stonking views, trad prep values and a 21st century outlook, deep in the Somerset countryside

  • 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!
