Statistics reveal Beaconsfield has the most expensive house prices near ‘outstanding’ rated school outside of London.

The average house price in Britain is £247,000, but to live near an ‘outstanding’ rated school some parents will face an extra £180,000 premium depending on the area according to research revealed on August 28.

To live near Beaconsfield High School expect to be paying around £1,474,930 for a home, compared to under £100,000 if you want to be able to attend a ‘outstanding’ rated school in Bradford.

Ofsted rates schools as outstanding if they ‘provide exceptionally well’ for their pupils’ needs and ‘prepare them for the next stage of their education or employment at the highest possible level.’

Online mortgage broker Trussle conducted the research and discovered how London and Beaconsfield house prices are much higher than the national average near top rated schools compared to areas up north such as Bradford, where the houses near these schools are in fact cheaper than the average.

Founder and CEO of Trussle, Ishaan Malhi said: “It’s clear that the close proximity of a top-rated secondary school can have a significant impact on property prices in the local area.

“Living near to good schools is a priority for many parents - be it within the catchment area of certain schools or to reduce the amount of time ferrying children back and forth each day.

“It’s certainly worth parents who are considering their child’s future education weighing up the options available to them. Outside of London, there are over 160 top-rated schools with house prices in the area being under the national average - and Government schemes like Shared Ownership can make owning a home more accessible.”

Beaconsfield was ninth highest in the list and was the only place in the top twenty that wasn’t London.
