School Reviews

  • Cottesmore School, Pease Pottage

    This full boarding, family-feel co-ed, feeding major public schools, occupies a grand Victorian mansion with a surprisingly cosy interior.

  • Brambletye, East Grinstead

    Muddy says: Celebrating its centenary, with a new arts building on the way, there's more than a knockout view to impress at Benedict Cumberbatch's former school

  • Brighton College, Brighton

    Muddy says: Impressive new buildings and a 'be yourself' attitude, including LGBT positivity, are standouts at this school beyond its strong academic reputation.

  • Great Walstead School, Lindfield

    Muddy says: This Mid Sussex co-ed prep and pre-prep lets children be children. A pupil-run farm is part of its outdoorsy focus.

  • Burgess Hill Girls, West Sussex

    Muddy Says: A selective school for 'sparky' girls aged 2-18 that particularly excels in art, textiles and science.

  • Eastbourne College

    Muddy says: A major new wing has added exciting sports and arts facilities to this historic school in the heart of Eastbourne.

    • St Andrew’s Prep, Eastbourne

      Muddy says: This friendly seaside school works hard to equip children with free thinking skills and makes good use of its surrounding environment.

    • Windlesham House School, nr Pulborough

      Muddy says: Non-selective independent Windlesham House School is strong on boarding, ICT and pastoral care - and it has a swanky new swimming pool.

      • Great Ballard School, Eartham, nr Chichester

        Muddy says: This outdoorsy school near Chichester, with a gorgeous South Downs setting, has a bucolic, nurturing environment for children from two and a half up to 13.

      • Hurstpierpoint College, Hassocks

        Muddy says: One of the best-known schools in Sussex, set on a large site and with a ‘have a go’ ethos that seeks to enthuse pupils to excel beyond their books.
