A new home for the new school year

Schools remain one of the top considerations when deciding where and which home to buy and, given the sizeable financial investment in purchasing a home, it is little wonder. 

As a parent, if you have just one child, you are faced with at least thirteen years of education needs which can jump significantly if you have two or more children, so finding a home which will fulfil the education requirements of your family from pre-prep all the way to fruition and negate the costly need to move home, has become the cornerstone of so many property searches. 

Often, however, this is easier said than done.

Happily, not in the case of Reading.  This thriving Berkshire town has much to offer prospective incumbents – from shops, restaurants and transport links to a superb choice of school – across all age ranges and denominations; state, independent and specialist.

Jane Bailey, Sales Manager at Bewley Homes, says:  “Schools are, without doubt, one of the primary reasons our Parklands development, on the edge of Woodley, has sold so well.  Families here have a wide choice of school in the immediate area – this ranges from state funded Bulmershe, Beechwood, Woodley C of E primary and Bracknell and Wokingham College all of which are Ofsted rated good; to the Ofsted rated outstanding Grammar schools of Reading School and Kendrick School; and Addington School for children and young people with special educational needs.  If desired, there is also a large selection of independent school including Dolphin, Crosfields, Hemdean, Reading Blue Coat and Queen Anne’s.

“Irrespective of your individual educational needs or aspirations, Parklands provides a satisfactory solution which must bring immense peace of mind to families.  After all, bricks and mortar may be the most expensive investment you’ll ever make, but the education you give your children is the most significant.”

Don’t miss the final opportunity to buy at Parklands with only 4 and 5 bedroom homes remaining.  Prices start at £535,000.  For more information, contact Bewley Homes on 01189 669742.
