What people think:
- ‘A busy school with a rosy outlook, ideal for a range of academic abilities – the late bloomer, the all-rounder and the high-flyer who doesn’t wish to be a mere pebble, fighting for survival, in the tidal wave of Oxford’s academic powerhouses’ The Good Schools Guide
- ‘The really good thing about boarding is that you’ll always have someone to talk to and you will also mix a lot with the older years as they supervise prep and put you to bed. This is really nice as it means there is no hierarchy, and House is somewhere you can relax.’ Phoebe Cain, Fifth Form, Corfe, Dragon
- ‘We chose Teddies because it is mixed, with a wonderful reputation for happiness.’ Current parents
- I love the whole co-ed idea. It’s good because you get to know girls which is very jolly as they are very nice. Imagine if you went to a single sex school until you were 18 and then went to work with girls — you would get seriously distracted.’ Billy Sallitt, Fifth Form, Cowell’s, Horris Hill.
- ‘We are impressed with the ethos of the school and the general environment. The children seem to come from a variety of backgrounds and the school supports each child (not just the academics) to fulfil their potential.’ Current parents
