When people decide to move, one of the most important factors can be schools.
Regularly I see buyers who specifically want to have their children enrolled in a particular school or college, which means that they need to be located in a particular catchment area.
There are lots of different ways of looking at this… If you move early before the children have enrolled, to make sure they get in, what’s to say that this school will still be a good school when their time comes?
On the other hand schools that are in special measures rarely stay there… so it could be possible to take advantage of this.
There is lots of information like the Ofsted school data dashboard which gives an overview of a schools performance available by visiting www.ofsted.gov.uk
