Let School Checker help you find the right school near your new home

Let School Checker help you find the right school near your new homeLet School Checker help you find the right school near your new home
Moving home can be time-consuming enough but if you have children then finding the right school for them only adds to your to-do list, which can mean hours scouring the internet for catchment information and Ofsted ratings.

Fortunately help is at hand in the shape of the Rightmove School Checker, now on all of our properties, which gives you access to admissions criteria and academic inspection reports to help you find the right home near the right school.

Here’s what Mumsnet said about their own experiences with School Checker.

‘Liked the visual catchment areas, making it easy to see if the property I was looking at was inside the catchment or not.’

‘Liked that you can see the Ofsted ratings straight away and to see whether the schools are oversubscribed.’
‘Found it very straightforward and easy to understand.’

‘Found it really useful as we are currently house-hunting and schools are a consideration. Particularly useful to be able to see catchment areas for local schools, Ofsted ratings and whether they were over-subscribed at the last school intake all on one screen when a new house comes onto the market.’

‘Would recommend it because I think it gives a good indication of what kind of school your child might be able to get into.’

‘Found the Ofsted rating being shown most useful as some schools I could rule out straight away. I also found the distance from the property useful as I like to be able to walk to schools.’

‘School Checker helped us choose where to buy our first house.’

‘This is a great idea as we all want the best for our kids. I found it very insightful and interesting to use. I would certainly use it when I am looking for a new home in order to get into a catchment that offered the best schools for my child.’

‘It gives a comprehensive summary of important information on schools close to homes.’

Bartram & Co MD Craig Bees adds: ‘We continually upgrade our IT systems to incorporate the best improvements in technology and this is a fantastic, free to use tool to help buyers save time in searching for the best schools in the area they want to move to.

‘You can also see the Ofsted rating, the admission area and whether a particular school is oversubscribed.’

‘On our own website, www.bartramandco.co.uk beneath each property you can also research local amenities including:

  • Healthcare Fitness & Gymnasiums
  • Shopping
  • Post Offices
  • Restaurants

‘With more information and amenity being added almost daily, what better way for buyers and sellers to stay in touch with local information?’

Monthly draw: your chance to win a case of Italian wines (red/whites/mixed) or one month’s membership to Whittlebury Hall Leisure Club.
