Looks like we're going to have to relocate due to DH's job. DS1 due to start school in September. We would really like to take this opportunity to upsize our house & buy our "dream" home.
My dilemma is whether we should find a good school for DS first & then try to find a house near the school, or look for our dream house first & then find a school near that?
Obviously finding a good school where DS will be happy is a major priority but what if we then can't find a house we like? And don't schools admissions need you to have a local address before giving a school place?
Very unlikely you'll get a place at an oversubscribed school for September now, and no you canlt even apply until in situ. Friend moved from abroad and used a relocation agent for house/school search . It was a few £100 but took most of the intiial legwork out of it.
