89% of The Buying Solution’s searches are education related. Jonathan Bramwell speaks to The Times today about the premiums associated and which state secondary schools in the Cotswolds are the most popular.
Jonathan Bramwell Head of The Buying Solution says; “The state schools in Cheltenham and the surrounding villages are a magnet for those moving from the UK’s bigger cities. Property prices in the catchment area for Balcarras, an outstanding secondary in the town centre, are reflective of its popularity in the area. Often family homes can achieve a 10+ % premium. The Cotswold School a language and science academy in Bourton-on-the-Water, one of the Cotswolds’ most picturesque villages and most visited tourist attractions outside of Cheltenham is rated Outstanding by Ofsted and has seen its leavers attending Russell Group universities double over the past five years. Set in 30 acres and with a catchment of around 10 miles it tends to attract those moving for a more rural way of life.”
