Muddy Stilettos Best Schools Guide

The Urban Guide To The Countryside



Launched in 2014, the Muddy Stilettos Best Schools Guide offers 300 + up-to-date, trusted reviews and listings of top English and Welsh schools, and is a hugely-trusted online platform for those actively searching for genuine insight into independent schools.

Part of Muddy Stilettos, the urban guide to the countryside and the UK’s No1 lifestyle site for women outside London, “Muddy” has fast become the ‘go-to’ guide for smart, cosmopolitan women looking for advice to find the right school to match their child’s needs. 

We’re passionate about both academic and holistic education and our in-depth reviews cover day and boarding schools, co-ed and single sex schools as well as online provision across 28 counties. Muddy Stilettos reviews consider the whole picture, ultimately answering the most important question for parents – will my child thrive and be happy at this school? 

All our editors are respected national journalists, who live in their county they review, and their informal style and super-useful advice is impartial, insightful and trusted.
