    Does anyone have information on secondary schools and houses in the Winchester area?

    Hello, all the secondary schools in Winchester are good however Kings is considered to be one of the best, and Perins in Alresford and Thornden in Chandlers Ford if you are willing to go 5 miles out. It depends what sort of house you are looking for and what catchment you need to be in – Winchester is a much sought after area because of the excellent schools, easy commute to London and it just being a wonderful cultural town to love in! Do you know the area at all?

    Thank you for your reply. I did not realise how popular Winchester was until I started looking, will follow up your suggestions on the schools – invaluable. Have also had a look on Primelocation etc at house prices, needed a sit down and a cup of tea (!), but really kind of you to respond.

    No problem Sophie, yes the prices here are a bit dear however the quality of life here is second to none plus you are so close to the New Forest and the coast…I live in Kings Worthy, 2 miles outside of Winchester where you do get more for your money, its lovely here with a great community, pub, farm shop and primary school!

    Hi Sophie,
    The great thing about Winchester is there are 3 secondary schools which are all very good. Kings is considered the best but Westgate and Henry Beaufort are very good as well. I know it’s pricey in Wincheter but there are cheaper areas of the town and it is such an amazing place. So well connected back to London, near the sea etc and the there is an amazing community feel. Good luck

    Hello all,
    We have just come back from a short visit to Winchester with baby and toddler in tow and are set on moving there to be nearer grandparents and for a better lifestyle, we are currently in northern Kent and husband commutes a couple of days a week rest of the time working from home. There is a real mix of properties there. But we love the location.

    I would like some advice on where to avoid, areas to be aware of and any thoughts on the huge amount of new homes that are planned for the next couple of years.
    I don’t know which part we should consider moving to and which parts to discount? Any advice is most welcome! A tad shocked at how little our money gets us here…
    Thanks
    Loraine
