Nurseries & Pre-schools
A small all-boys prep school, on a 45-acre 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. The remote learning programme has been excellent too. Impressive.
Muddy says: For a small pre-prep with a strong family feel and an innovative approach, the three Little Downsend schools are hard to fault. Small but perfectly formed, teaching little people with very big ideas, the three Little Downsends are hard to fault.
A lovely Catholic prep school for boys and girls with strong sports and music offerings, plus excellent results. Nothing at all to fault here.
Muddy says: This pre-prep nursery will set good foundations for your little one's learning in a positive and nurturing environment.
