Education

  • Weston Green School, Thames Ditton

    From Kindergarten to Year 6, this lovely co-ed school in Thames Ditton has outstanding pastoral care, a nurturing family vibe and excellent academic results. Wins all round!

  • Shrewsbury House Pre-prep School, Esher

    A small co-ed pre-prep school for children aged 3-7 years. It's warm and welcoming with a super strong sense of community, great academics and active sports and music programmes.

  • St John’s Beaumont, Old Windsor

    An under the radar prep that's laser focussed on the softer skills and academic firepower to produce well-rounded socially intelligent boys.

  • Woodcote House School for Boys, Windlesham

    A small but high-achieving day and boarding school for boys with a warm nurturing environment where boys are allowed to be boys.

  • Remote education: what we’ve learnt so far

    As parents hunker down for at least another month with kids at home, we talk to the Headmaster at Reigate St Mary's to find out what the past year has taught us about remote learning.

  • Cranleigh Prep School, Cranleigh

    This day and boarding prep school is an excellent all-rounder with impressive academics, music, arts and sports - plus a dazzling array of facilities. Wow!

  • Children and technology: the balancing act

    Tech often gets a bad rap - see how it beguiles our children into gaming for eight hours a day and of course there are the perils of social media. But a recent meeting made me see things a bit differently. You might too.

  • King Edward’s Witley, near Godalming

    Looking for a day and boarding school with bags of history, a beautiful campus, solid all-rounder offering and a super strong sense of community? King Edward's Witley is the full package. Diversity and inclusion are high on the agenda here too.

  • Caterham Prep School, Caterham

    Friendly, inclusive and stimulating, Caterham Prep sets the foundations in children for a love of learning.

  • Coworth Flexlands, Chobham

    A caring, inclusive and incredibly family-focussed girls prep school and co-ed pre-prep set in an idyllic countryside location.
