Hertfordshire estate agents herald county's primary school performances

Many Hertfordshire families with babies and toddlers will have rushed for the issue of The Sunday Times that contained a list of Britain's top 300 primary schools. Schooling is an important part of a child's formative years and is increasingly one of the top reasons why people move house. For family buyers of houses for sale in Hertfordshire, some moves will be dictated by school catchment areas, with houses close to the best ranking schools commanding the highest premium. For those whose children are destined for independent education, a purchase can be driven by distance - choosing a property for sale in Hertfordshire that offers the shortest drive to school, or even a facility within walking distance. Undoubtedly parents and those thinking of starting a family are positioning themselves close to exemplary schools very early in the their children's lifecycle - often before they are born - using league tables and Ofsted reports as guidance. Primary schools in Hertfordshire faired spectacularly well in the latest league tables, comment Hertfordshire estate agents. Given that there are over 24,000 primary schools in Britain, making the top 300 is a remarkable feat. The Sunday Times' list of schools was divided into two sections: the top 100 independent primary schools and the top 200 state primary schools, with the rankings determined by English scores combined with maths results in the key stage two Sats tests taken in 2013. Topping the independent primary school list and holding its number one spot was The Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' Preparatory School in Elstree, where results were just shy of 100% in every single test category. Following in 36th place was St Hilda's School in Bushey, where a strong performance in English grammar and maths cemented their debut in the top 100 independent schools list. The county also made a big impact in the top 200 state primary schools. Harpenden lead the way, with five schools in the top 200. High Beeches Primary School in Harpenden was the highest ranked Hertfordshire primary run by the state, ranking at number 53. St Albans also posted a strong performance with four primary schools in the league table - led by The Abbey C of E Primary School at number 109. Bushey followed with two schools, with Hemel Hempstead, Watford, Hertford and Rickmansworth all having one primary school in the top 200. If you are interested in flats and houses for sale in Hertfordshire that are in the catchment of the top performing primary schools, contact Winkworth today. We would also be delighted to help homeowners wishing to sell their Hertfordshire property.
