Selection test results bring grammar schooling into focus, say estate agents in Kent

Estate agents in Kent are no stranger to families enquiring about property for sale, but more than any county in the south east; those with primary school age children always make a bee line for the county. Why' The grammar schools. Grammar schooling always comes into focus during the autumn as September is the month that pupils in year 6 sit the Kent PESE Test and October the month when the results are published. The law bans any new grammar schools from being built in England so those that do exist are highly sought after. There are just 164 grammar schools in the UK and 33 of those are in Kent. While there are continuing bids by Invicta and Weald of Kent grammar schools to extend and open satellite facilities in Sevenoaks, the proposals have yet to be sanctioned. Grammar schools look at the pass mark during the admissions process, preferring the highest-achieving students, but with an overwhelming demand for grammar school places, living distance from the school is often taken into account in an over subscription situation, say our Kent estate agents. The good news is Winkworth's four offices in the county have houses for sale in Kent areas where there are grammar schools. Properties in Canterbury, Chislehurst, Beckenham and Tunbridge Wells are some of the very best in Kent, with fantastic public transport connections, access to open countryside and excellent shopping facilities complementing the exceptional educational institutions. Winkworth is delighted to match buyers with houses for sale in Kent that are in the best grammar school catchment areas. Here are the closest Kent grammar schools to our offices:- Canterbury Barton Court Grammar School (mixed) Simon Langton Grammar School for Girls Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys   Chislehurst Chislehurst & Sidcup Grammar School (mixed)   Beckenham St Olave's Grammar School (boys, mixed sixth from)   Tunbridge Wells Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys Tunbridge Wells Girl's Grammar School The Skinners' School (boys) The Judd School (boys) If you are looking to move to Kent or are looking to relocate within the county to be closer to selective secondary schooling, contact Winkworth Kent estate agents today. We can advise on all aspects of the buying process, including mortgages and conveyancing.
