Find your perfect country prep school
Whether you're contemplating a move for your entire family or want to explore the education options within a daily minibus-ride of the capital, we can help.

Where to begin?

The appeal of country prep schools is clear, but there are many factors to take into consideration. Who will have to commute, parents or children, and what are the transport links? Are you looking for a school which offers boarding, and if so, what type? Which schools do pupils typically go on to? Our team has useful advice on how to plan your search.



Once you’ve chosen the right school for your child, it’s time to think about the logistics of your move. We asked bespoke property finder Fiona Penny to answer all our questions about finding a home in the country – from the optimum length of the school run to how you can snag an off-market property. The good news is: she’s yet to find a family who has regretted making the move.
