My husband is working in Crawley area which I understand is not so nice for families. I am planning to join him relocating with our 3 kids and we are totally lost on where to live. Reigate? Tunbridge Wells? Haywards Heath? Horsham?
I am also working and traveling so its a must to have all 3 kids in same school and they are in junior and senior so I understand only option are private ones? Any input on Hurst? Ardingly? Beechwood? Anyother? Any insights you can provide will be more than welcome!

Caterham School has the full age range, and is co-ed. Caterham is close to the motorway network so it's a straight forward journey to Crawley, probably takes about 30 mins.

There will be no guarantee of places for all at the same school, even private. How old are the dc, some preps go up to 13. In Reigate you'd be looking at the Grammar School (coed private selective) and its associated prep St Mary's although Micklefield is a standalone prep not far away and with a good record at 11+ entry. Housing and traffic are issues in the locality. Caterham has junior/senior but again there are a number of small preps close by which also feed into the senior. Hurst and Ardingly are less academically selective.
