Developer Welcomes Autumn Opening Of Great Ouse Primary Academy
27 Feb 2017

As education is high on the parental agenda for many, Linden Homes Midlands have welcomed news that the Great Ouse Primary Academy is to open close to one of its developments.

With the first sales already secured at St Andrews at Kings Field in Biddenham, there is more good news for home hunters looking to move to the area – with the opening of the school (a member of the Sharnbrook Academy Federation SAF) this September.

The Academy will be a feeder school for Sharnbrook Academy & Lincroft Academy, giving families living at, and moving to, St Andrews an exciting new option when it comes to education for their children.

Great Ouse Primary Academy opens in September 2017 with a Pre School, Reception and Years 1 and 2.

Linden Homes Midlands sales manager Karen Stockwell said: “This is a very exciting prospect for the area, as well as for the many families who are looking for a fantastic place to live, coupled with excellent educational opportunities on the doorstep.

“Our development at St Andrews is the perfect location for families with young children to tick all the boxes and plan for those very important years of education.”

A total of 101 two, three, four and five bedroom new homes are being built off Bromham Road at the St Andrews development - in a range of terraced, semi-detached and detached styles.

The new homes are located towards the east of the Bedfordshire village, perfectly placed just over a mile from Bedford train station.
And with the Help to Buy scheme, owning one of these fantastic new homes may be easier than you think – as recent reservations have shown.

Under the Government-backed scheme:

  • You only need a minimum five per cent deposit
  • The Government will lend you up 20 per cent of the value of your property through an equity loan – interest free for the first five years, and which can be repaid at any time, or on the sale of your home.
  • Buyers need only to secure up to a 75 per cent mortgage from a bank or building society.
