Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

Merrywood House Independent Special School Reviews

Average Rating:


“A great school”
A wonderful school. Staff are friendly and are great with the children: very caring, nurturing and understanding. My child loves this school and for the first time loves going to school since starting Merrywood. My child is making great progress and I could not ask for a better school.
“A tranquil home-like school”
From the moment we first visited Merrywood, we fell in love with the school, the setting and their ethos. The school is set in a beautiful old Manor House in stunning grounds surrounded by woodland. We were made to feel like family the moment we arrived for our first visit. Their goal is to provide trauma informed therapeutic style school. The passion and dedication shown by Michelle and all the staff is truly amazing. Our son had struggled in both mainstream and special needs schools his whole life but he felt at home at Merrywood from day one. Our son craved a therapeutic school and Merrywood and all the staff provided everything he needs to thrive. We have had our ups and downs but the staff have been great and have done everything they can to support our son, us and the entire school family.
