    Hi, we are looking to move from London to Bournemouth/Poole in the next 6 months. Does anyone know what the following roads are like, Davies Road BH12, Wroxham Road BH12 and Surrey Road BH12. We are also interested in other surroundings roads in the BH12 area and would welcome and tips and advice on this area. Also any advice on local Junior and secondary schools close to the BH12 postcode.

    Hi Steven, if you are planning to move to Dorset, its always good to do your research first. BH12 is a competitively priced area to live in versus nearby Branksome Park and Westbourne. Surrey Road typically offers flats versus houses with some great options looking onto Bournemouth Upper Gardens. There are good grammar schools in Poole and Bournemouth, but you will need to take the bus. You can look at local agents like YOUhome and current properties for sale in BH12 here http://ow.ly/UO9X308SqvA. Good luck with your move – you’ll love life on the coast we’re sure.

    I don’t live in Bournemouth but was brought up in Poole (Parkstone) and go back very frequently as have family there. i also went to Talbot Heath School very near where you are looking at property.

    Surrey road is a rat run from memory so I would check this out in rush hour before committing to a property. Some of the roads down the back of Branksome station are quite steep hills so bear this is mind (it may not bother you). Davies road is moving more towards Parkstone than Branksome so I would check out catchment areas of schools if that is an issue.

    Not sure of your budget but check out areas like Lower Parkstone if you can afford, it’s lovely, has some cute shops and is closer to other amenities such as Poole Park/baiter recreation ground and so on.

    In terms of secondary schools then you are lucky to have Grammar schools in Poole – Parkstone (Girls) and Poole (Boys) and Bournemouth. These of course require entry exams. Only know junior in BH14 so can’t help further than that I’m afraid.
