Moving from London

Hi, we're planning to relocate back to the North from London and looking at Beverley as a possible location. The houses/area that I'm looking at would mean the kids go to either Keldmarsh or Beverley Minster primary schools. Based purely on the websites I'm thinking Keldmarsh would be my preference but does anyone know either school? thanks, xx

My child is in Beverley Minster Primary School.He loves it.Lovely friendly atmosphere .Teachers are supportive .
Hope the move goes well for you.
Beverley is a great place to bring your children up.The secondary schools are excellent too

Oh lovely to know - thank-you. Fact finding mission planned for Feb half term so if you spot a slightly harassed looking women dragging 3 cockney kids around behind her it'll be me!

Is your half term 10-18 February?Currently I think I might be about then so let me know
The tourist information office is now located in the library( great for kids )- you should call them and check out activities suitable for your kids when you're in Beverley .There is a great cinema too ( you can bring your own sweets and crisps in- bonus for children).There are so many things ( dance academies/drama companies/scouts etc /football teams/leisure centre with fun inflatable sessions during weekend and holidays) and lots of decent restaurants here .
We lived in Scotland for 4 yrs so my 5 children know what its like to move about too. They have made friends very easily here in Beverley

Oh cheers miss. All sounds perfect. We're up 14th - 18th Feb and although we're going to also head up to West/North Yorkshire for a look I suspect East will be where it's at.

Thanks for the top tips. We've booked in to Ogino for a meal but any other recommendations gratefully received!

Hope you are having a great time up in East Yorks.
If your children like all foods, Jardelle in North Bar Within does sharing platters of Turkish food that are very tasty.
Keldmarsh is a very popular school and the catchment area is tight. Walkington primary is also popular and includes the Broadgates estate in its catchment. Re secondary schools Longcroft does not have good sixth form results if you want strong academics.
As you head back to the M62 Williams Den at North Cave is fab for primary age children.

Thanks for the tips! Beverley definitely the place for us. Just need to figure out our sums now and the logistics of the move. I don’t suppose anyone uses or knows anything about any of the pre-school nurseries? I’ll need to park my 2 year old somewhere through the week while I’m working.xx

Before you commit to any property in Beverly, please check out flood risk.

Excellent choice grin.

Nursery is very well regarded but is term-time only. Otherwise I would wait until you know if you are working in Beverley or Hull or living in one of the villages.

There was a flood from the Westwood 11 years ago which affected a couple of streets quite badly but the rest of the town was fine. It's not known for flooding ! "Underground lagoons " have been built.
The river Hull has been dredged for just about the first time in living memory and that only used to affect Tickton pub which is riverside & Weel (only a few houses & the household waste tip) near Beverley and then further down at Kingswood in Hull. www.kirkhope.org.uk/news/%C2%A345m-plan-improve-flood-defences-along-river-hull-has-been-agreed

Feel free to ask any other questions. We've been here a long time !
