Over £40,000 to live near best schools

The Telegraph reported research showing that the average cost of a house in the postcodes of England’s 30 best state schools was £40,728 higher than the average for the surrounding area.
For the top six schools, the premium was more than twice as much at £125,000.

For parents, the only saving grace is that provided the school maintains its grade, the premium is still likely to be there when they come to sell.
