How close are you to an Outstanding School?

Term starts this week for many of the nearly 8.8 million schoolchildren across England and Wales. School catchments play an important role for many when choosing a home.

Across England and Wales, nearly 4.3 million homes (17%) have an OFSTED rated Outstanding as their nearest.

With catchment areas for secondary schools generally larger, it is no surprise a higher proportion of homes, nearly 1 in 5 have an outstanding secondary as their nearest.

Property price growth in catchment areas around top schools can often exceed other areas and living close to a top school can attract a significant price premium.
