Oxford recognised as one of the top areas in the country for schools

Oxford top 15

Oxford has always been synonymous with Universities and a high standard of education. Oxford University can trace its routes back to the 11th century and since then more educational institutes have appeared in Oxford each increasing the standard until Oxford became known worldwide as a Mecca for all things intellectual. This high standard of education is not just reserved for the Universities and its Colleges but also the Primary, Secondary and Prep Schools with many people moving to Oxford to enable their children to attend. Oxford houses a generous mix of independent and state schools which can cater to the aspirations of parents and children. This has been recognised by The Times, selecting Oxford as one the best areas in Britain for schools, placing it in the Top 15.

We understand that the choice of school can influence a house move, and so we became the first letting agent in the UK to enable applicants to search for property by school catchment area. We also include school catchment areas on our property pages with links to the school’s website and Ofsted report to ensure you make the best informed decision.

The Private Rental Sector has also evolved since 2008. People are more cautious, tenants stay longer, there are fewer ‘weekend’ cottages let to Londoners, fewer corporate tenancies and more young people renting. Beneath these macro changes our eight offices have observed the following trends in Oxfordshire in the first quarter (Q1) of 2013:
