Where To Buy In Swindon For Access To The Best Schools
03 Oct 2018

With one in four parents moving their family to ensure their child gets into a better school – and many parents whose children will start school next September already planning ahead to ensure they get a spot at their preferred educational institution - Linden Homes is meeting the demand for homes in catchment areas of ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rated schools with new developments across Swindon.

Simon Pendlebury, managing director for Linden Homes Thames Valley said: “With the competition for school places so fierce, parents are looking to take advantage of all potential options to make sure their child gets into their first choice of school.

“It was also recently found that almost 50% of schools across the UK received more applications than there were places, which for some could mean longer school-runs and poorer teaching standards. Here, at Linden Homes we pride ourselves on building homes in locations that best suit family living and consider a number of different factors, from proximity to good schools and nurseries to ease of getting to the local supermarket”.

Top-10 housebuilder, Linden Homes is offering househunters and parents alike with the chance to ensure the best education for their children.
