Can anyone tell me what this area is like to live please?

we are hoping to move here in the summer. Our children will be going into year 1 and year 3 in September. I can see online that there is a space from my eldest but the current reception class is full. Does anyone know much about the school? Just wondering if it's likely that a space will open up for my youngest in September.

Any information/opinions would be gratefully appreciated! smile

Its a great place to live, nice area and safe for kids. Its also close to a Tesco, Next, M&S etc in the shopping centre, good transport links, close to the the A1 and Metro. Schools I'm not sure about, but there is a nursery 5 minutes away called Kenton Park Nursery School which is brilliant. Hope this helps!

Thank you for replying. We went and had a drive round and it seems lovely! It's just the schools I'm worried about now.

Thanks for the nursery recommendation but both of mine are school age now.

Hi I’m new to mumsnet and looking for some advice.
I’m from Scotland and looking to move to Newcastle in the next month or January ,I know that’s not a lot of time but hey ho it’s all systems go.
Now I have a daughter who was born 07/01/08 who is 10 and my partner has a daughter born 20/08/07 who is 11 , they have 5 months of an age gap both girls are in p7 in Scotland here , but I have now come to realise this is different in England / Newcastle can someone please tell me how the process works and would one child either repeat a year or jump a year, I have tried to speak to city council and called round a bunch of schools and havnt been successful at getting the correct information. We are looking to move to the Kingston Park area due to work commitments,
Any views ? Recommendations as to what schools are best not Kenton the reviews are horrendous 🙄🙄 . I do know my way round Newcastle I’m a frequent visitor but if I’m moving children it’s a whole different ball game any info appreciated 💞 I really just don’t want the girls to suffer with school and then splitting them up is not ideal .
