    This small rural school might look traditional from the outside but has a modern mentality and has just opened its doors to boys for the first time, too.

  • Kimbolton School (Prep School), Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire

    Muddy says: A highly-regarded co-ed prep school on the Cambridgeshire border in a beautiful rural setting, known for its amazing facilities, extra-curricular activities and family-orientated atmosphere.

  • Kimbolton School (Senior), Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire

    Muddy says: You'll find 120 acres of glorious grounds and a stunning castle setting at this high-achieving co-ed senior school for day pupils and boarders age 11 - 18, with a strong all-rounder reputation and great results. Fancy a closer look?
