I've been offered a job in Durham hospital but I would need to sort schools out for my children before accepting
I have a daughter starting year 12 in September and a son starting year 10.
Any suggestions about best schools and areas to live!
I am new to the area and have only visited Durham once as a tourist!
I will be renting and my budget would be around £2500. Ideally walking distance to schools (and maybe town centre) but I don't know if this exists!
Schools a priority as both my kids are doing great at their current school
Thank you for your advice!
I'm not local to Durham but do live in the North East and Durham Johnston seems to do well in exams in each year and was outstanding at last Ofsted. £2500 budget should get you something really nice and central I'd imagine. Good luck with the move.
Thank you GriseldaChop! This is tealy useful
I will have a look at the school and contact them to see if it is not to late to apply for a sixth form admission. I suppose year 10 will be more complicated as will depend if they get any free spaces for year 10 next year.
St Leonard’s also good choice and very close to hospital
Thank you Strugglingmum73! I will have a look at it too
Any suggestions about nice areas to live?
