DH has just been offered a job in Northampton and we will need to relocate there (currently in Berkshire). DS1 is due to start school in September and we also have a 1 yr old. Can anyone give us any idea of good schools, nice areas etc? Probably prefer to live in a village/small town rather than Northampton itself, but definitely need to be in catchment for good schools. Looking for a big house and garden - I'm hoping property prices are a good bit lower than here in Berkshire to enable us to upsize.
I re-located to northants a few years ago - Live in Rushden (east Northants) It's a small town, but quite far away from northampton it's self. I know some of the smaller village towards towcester are beautiful. House prices are quite cheap here in rushden, but it's not the most up market place you can think of. Earls Barton/ Ecton? Mears Ashby are all lovely, And just a short drive to northampton on the A45
Hi, my parents are in a little village not too far from Towcester. The village school has a good reputation (Pattishall) and I think the secondary schools in Bugbrooke and Campion school are quite well thought of. They only moved there after we'd left home so we've never actually lived there - it was only supposed to be a temporary move for my parents but 17 years later they're still there. There is certainly a lovely community spirit and the villages are just beautiful (Pattishall, Eastcote, Astcote, Dalscote, Greens Norton).
