High quality state schools abound, with a strong emphasis from the County Council in sustaining the small village local schools that are the lifeblood of communities. For some regions, access to grammar schools in Warwickshire and Buckinghamshire is also a realistic possibility.

A wealth of private prep (primary age) schools provide a steady stream of pupils to the top secondary schools in the country, many of which are also conveniently located in or near Northants.

For those wanting private schooling (also known as Public Schools or Independent Schools), the following schools are all easily accessible to residents of Northamptonshire, as the county can provide a great permanent family base for balancing the simultaneous demands of commuting and also being near enough to the school of choice.
