What notable alumni have attended a Midlands private school?

Private schools in the Midlands have been a key stepping stone for many notable alumni. From renowned fantasy writer J. R. R. Tolkien and iconic actress Julie Walters to Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, the region’s schools are a beacon of excellence for pupils.     

What Midlands school is best for my child?  

When it comes to choosing a school there is no one size fits all approach: would your child thrive within a full, weekly, or flexi-boarding environment? Would they thrive within a co-ed or single-gender setting? Is the school based in a preferable location? These are just a few of the things worth considering as you start your journey finding the perfect Midlands private school.
