Schools out - homes near good schools


While the summer holidays are a time for children to forget about their studies and enjoy the sunshine (when it appears), the end of the school year often signals a time of forward thinking for parents concerned about the future of their children’s education.


Research by independent market research company Censuswide, found that 72% of parents feel a local school with an ‘outstanding’ or ‘good’ Ofsted-rating was a necessity before moving to a new home. To save you the stress of finding a home near the best schools in the area – we’ve done done some of the homework for you.

Price Reductions are a current market reality...

Like many buyers, I log onto Rightmove each morning to find out what’s happened in Guildford’s ever-changing property market over the last 24 hours: which houses have gone under offer and what new instructions have been added.
