Do your research!

Before you start your property search, research the catchment area of good schools. Think long term – also look into whether the primary schools in the area are a feeder school to a good secondary school. 

Think logistics

Reflect on the logistics – will you drive your children to school every morning, or would they need to get a bus? Where is the bus stop – is the bus route near the property or would they have to walk some distance? Will the bus times affect your morning routine?

Everybody needs good neighbours

It’s worth looking to the neighbours – are there other children in the neighbourhood of the same school age? Is there a community feel to the area?

Ask the professionals
