Hi there
I already posted this under primary education but thought i'd try here too.
We are thinking of moving (from Dubai) to Woking and need advice on schools and areas to live.
We will consider state and independent but may not be able to afford independent for more than 2 years...
We have boys who will be going into year 10, year 5 and year 4.
I havent had much luck finding good secondary schools in Woking and other than RGS no recommendations for Guildford either. Someone did mention Winston Churchilll tho...any others? Fullbrook? What is Freemantles? is Philip Southcote any good?
so much to consider!
many thanks in advance!

Thanks again cece and springrain smile

DS1 is now registered for 3 schools and will prob register him for 2 or 3 more...assessments can be anytime for the schools who have agreed to send the papers to his current school. For the school which is insisting on him being on site, it will be 2nd week of Jan...fingers crossed!

Hi All,

I know this thread has been inactive for a long time trying all my options. I really need some advice regarding buying a house in Woking. DH and I work in London. We do not have any children but am in the middle of my first IVF cycle and hoping for the best.
Our main priorities are access to the station- a short walk or a short bus ride as I do not drive, having a convenience store and surgery nearby, good day care and schools.

We have identified a house in Denton way (Knightswood) Woking and I wanted some advice on this area. Goldsworth park is so big that it is hard to figure out the suitable parts (if any). There are mixed reviews all this a good place to buy. Horsell sounds nice although there aren't many properties in that area. Are there any other areas in Woking within easy reach of the station?

I would be grateful for any advice.
Many thanks

I would be wary of Goldsworth Park, not the best part of Woking. Horsell is lovely but very expensive and not much to buy. Do you have to be in Woking? St Johns is slightly further out but better. We used to live in Knaphill which is ok, good schools, local amenities and Brookwood station is one stop on from Woking. West Byfleet is another option

We opted out of buying this house in GoldsWorth park, the search is still on. Woking is the most preferred option just because of links to London. Will keep St Johns in mind as well. Thank you Mumtogremlins.
