Whereabouts are you in Essex? It's a big county.... Boarding or day? 11+ or 6th form?

I know, but we don't mind how far. We will be looking to move soon, so could move closer to it.

We are actually looking for a prep school or school that caters from 3.

Massive choice for prep. I think you need to decide where you are moving to first. And decide if you want to pay for secondary or want grammar?

Forgot to add: single sex or co-ed? Selective or non selective preference? How old is your child currently? At my daughter's prep there are 20 in a year and beyond age 6mths you are very likely on a wait list as all places are taken for 3+ entry.

It also depends on whether you are looking for 11+ or 13+ entry to secondary or a school to go the whole way through to 18.

Yes, we need more info! I know a lot of schools, too many to list...

There is some in Colchester. St Margarets in Gosfield is a prep school. There's another boarding school in Gosfield. Try Chelmsford too.

Yes, Chelmsford has lots! Also, there's a good one in Maldon smile

Ursuline prep is lovely.

Newhall take from 2, I think?

New Hall is 3-18. It's a lovely school smile but it's Roman Catholic, so not sure if that would bother you?

Walden School (formerly Friends School) and Dame Bradbury (part of the Stephen Perse foundation) in Saffron Walden are both co-ed and take from pre-prep.
