Over half of London’s postcodes top the list for the highest average property premium when it comes to buying a home in a location close to schools rated ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED[1]. For parents looking to secure their child’s place in a meritable school without paying the high price premium that comes with buying in the city, Millwood Designer Homes has a selection of family-friendly developments in the commuter belt, ideally located for an abundance of excellent school options for children of all ages.

Covering the home counties of Sussex, Surrey and Kent, the exceptional selection of homes at Heatherlands in Heathfield, Bakers Field in Cliffsend, Cherry Tree Lane in Ewhurst and Heartenoak Meadows in Hawkhurst require no compromise when it comes to buying an outstanding, affordable new home in close proximity to high-performing schools, providing the very best education options for every child.

Situated in the quiet countryside locations of Heathfield, Cliffsend, Ewhurst and Hawkhurst, families will be spoilt for education choice, as well as enjoying a more relaxed lifestyle compared to inner-city living. In Heathfield, there is an array of schools in the area including Cross in Hand CofE Primary School located just an 11 minute walk from Heatherlands, and Heathfield Community College, a secondary school and sixth form rated ‘Good’, is just a short bus ride away. Bakers Field is close to four ‘Outstanding’ schools all within 3 miles, such as Chilton Primary School and Dane Court Grammar School which exceeds the national average with 85% of students achieving Grade 5 or above at GCSE. For private schooling, Ewhurst is within easy reach of Hurtwood House School and Cranleigh School, whilst Heartenoak Meadows is within the catchment area for Marlborough House School, all of which offer boarding and day options. 

Philip Brown, Sales and Marketing Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “Buying a home in a location that has good local schools is an essential factor for parents keen to get the very best education for their children. For those priced out of London, the home counties are a fantastic option for families, with plenty of first-class schools, both primary and secondary, to choose from. House-hunters looking for an outstanding home to match the outstanding school choices should definitely look towards our homes in Sussex, Surrey and Kent, which offer idyllic rural locations as well as excellent education options.”
