Kids

  • Preparing children for the digital world

    How do school's prepare children for a digital world when technology changes so fast? We asked Ian Thorpe, head teacher at Downsend School in Leatherhead.

  • Aberdour School, Tadworth

    An innovative approach to learning which includes a unique and bespoke curriculum helps put this co-ed prep school in a class of its own.

  • 30 brilliant half term saviours

    Half term saviours coming your way. We know exactly to keep the kids entertained – from art and cookery to the best theatre and days out. We’ve nailed it.

  • Glenesk School

    A pint-sized village nursery and pre-prep which specialises in teaching children aged 2 to 7. There's a strong sense of community, and children do well.

  • Rainy day out for kids

    Want to keep your pre-schoolers amused but can't face another soggy day at the park? Go to Godstone Farm where there's plenty of indoor play. And animals too!

  • Cranleigh School, Cranleigh

    Muddy says: A top co-ed day and boarding school with a dazzling array of facilities, a strong academic offering and a real sense of family and community.

  • Elmhurst School

    A small boys' school with a close-knit community and an innovative approach to learning that gets results. It's a hidden gem, for sure.

  • Parkside School, Cobham

    A small all-boys prep school, on a big site with a community vibe that really stands out. It punches way above its weight both academically and on the sporting pitch, and has been making waves in music and drama too. Impressive.

  • Banstead Prep School, Banstead

    Muddy says: For first-class facilities and a great all-rounder education, Banstead Prep School is a great option for boys and girls.

  • The Hawthorns School, Bletchingley

    This co-ed day school for children aged 2-13 is set in an idyllic location, bears more than a passing resemblance to Hogwarts and has a deserved reputation for its all-rounder offering. Impressive!
