Tatler magazine has announced the ‘best prep school in the land’ – and the winner is in Oxfordshire.

St Hugh’s School near Faringdon picked up the prestigious honour at the Tatler School Awards ceremony at London’s Dorchester Hotel.

The school centres around a Jacobean manor house, within an estate which covers 45 acres of Oxfordshire countryside.

Headmaster David Griffiths said: “We are really delighted to have received this recognition from Tatler, which reflects the dedication of staff and the strength and support of our school community.

“To be chosen as the best prep school in the country, and largely as a result of votes from the public, is a fantastic accolade for St Hugh’s and a great honour.”

Other Oxfordshire schools were also triumphant at the awards.

Radley College was named ‘best public school’, and Helen Pike, master of Magdalen College School in Oxford, picked up the award for ‘best public head’.
