A new school year is already upon us and whilst many children will be experiencing first day jitters of nerves and excitement whilst bundled in over-sized uniforms, parents may be thinking ahead to the next step in their child’s education. If you are looking for a new property in Cheshire, then finding a good school will be near top of your agenda.
In light of the independent school league table that’s recently been published to coincide with this year’s GCSE and A level results, we thought it only timely to take a look at some of Cheshire’s finest properties that are within easy commuting distance to the county’s top independent schools.
