Everyone wants the best for their children and providing them with a decent education is something that will always come high on the agenda. Of course, it’s not as easy as simply picking a school and packing your child off to class. Competition for places at the top schools is intense and would-be pupils usually need to live within a specified catchment area to stand any chance of being accepted, which means homes near good schools are always at a premium. According to a Department for Education report, buyers need to spend 8% more to buy a property near the best primary schools and 7% extra by top secondaries. Not only that but homes near good schools don’t stick around for long. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of our best homes near good schools.
