Its reputation is that it's not the nicest area in Peterborough. I think there are a lot of families there but I don't know much about it first hand, only what I've heard. It's probably nowhere near as bad as it sounds, most places aren't. It's not like Moss Side or anything, just not the nicest part of town. This might help a bit.

Ofsted primary school report

There's a Catholic secondary school that's probably the nearest one, don't know anything about it other than it's small.

There's also a large academy, it has good facilities and a friend's son goes there and is very happy- no first hand knowledge though, my eldest is only 3.

Work-wise, it is close to the main industrial area so lots of jobs there. Also not too far from the city centre.

Hope that helps a bit.
