Does anyone know of the better places to live in Telford, with good schools as main priority.

Also the places to avoid

Thanks in advance

apparently parts of Madeley are very nice.

Woodside apparently is not

completely bored we have been in our house 4 years now (the longest ever) I like Telford cause of the shopping, park, iceskating etc.

Dh is going for a interview on Thursday and the areas to cover are either Wolverhampton, Walsall, Telford or Shrewsbury all accessible from Stafford I know but just fed up with house.

Fio have you any opinion on Parkside Primary as a school ? the houses are bigger over that side of Stafford, but don't want to move in case I get it all wrong for them

Thabks Malory, interesting as we could afford a bigger house there, just hope dh gets this job, fingers crossed for Thursday

we could jump from a 3 bed semi to a 4 bed detached, just paying approx 10k more.

Telford reminds me of MKeynes, a place I miss so much.

I nearly bought a house on the parkside estate! it was one of those triangular house, you know the sort. parkside used to have a reputation for being a bit rough but tbh i have known people who live there and they have found it fine. On the whole apart from Highfields and moss pit, stafford isnt really rough is it?! You arent from Stafford are you? I was born in cannock and tbh i always felt a bit of an outsider in stafford and didnt really have a big 'pull' towards the place.

I have relatives in Wolverhampton aswell, if you want to know areas there too

btw youy dont know the phone number for castle caravans do you? they are off that road uup to amerton farm, my caravan is there and they havent sent me an invoice for this year and I am getting worried!

can't find the number just looked in YPages, can't see it.

I am from Rugeley originally, but lived in Kent & MK. Stafford is nice, but we moved to WX to come under Walton catchment and can't progress house size in this area. I just worry so much about the kids I need to get it right for them, supposedly this catchment is one of the top and I would kick myself if I moved them all for the sake of me wanting another bedroom and boredem

Weston road school is pretty good though IMO, have you looked at Kingston Hill?

Good and bad bits in all areas of Telford North Telford is nicer in m o For schools check out Telford and Wrekin website and decide on the school first then the area
