    Should you care about a value-added education ?

    You may have heard about how schools use ‘value-added’ to measure performance but it is an often misunderstood concept. Wycliffe College has spent more than a decade feeling justifiably proud of its value-added output. Here, Sean Dunne, Deputy Head of Wycliffe College, shares his views on the subject.

  • Bredon School

    Muddy says: An independent boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 7 to 18, situated in gorgeous Gloucestershire countryside, Bredon is certainly one to look out for!

  • Rendcomb Junior School

    Muddy says: An outdoorsy co-ed junior school for ages 3-11 with small pupil numbers but whopper facilities, hidden away in the heart of the Cotswolds.
