We're looking at Teddies in Oxford for 13+ boarding for DS1. Great open morning recently - love that academic entry is gentle but it still produces full range of Oxbridge + Russell Group destinations, and will find & support whichever strength for each child whether art or music etc. Staff seemed down to earth and kids also grounded and not obviously 'privileged'. Also love the location, and that teenagers needing independence can make the most of Oxford on the doorstep. DS1 average academically but loves sport and is musical - not overly confident. I'd love to know any thoughts on Teddies generally, both good and bad.

We might look at Teddies for DS2 or possibly Abingdon (if his academic strength continues and he seems robust enough), though one school for both is always attractive!

We live an hour away from Oxford, but are considering a complete relocation to be within 30 mins or so. Where would be good to live?! We could go anywhere! Need to be commutable to London by train. Not familiar with Oxford roads & traffic so any thoughts on 'smart' places to live (or avoid) would be much appreciated!
