According to this article in the Telegraph, Parents who want to secure a home close to the country's top performing state secondary schools face additional costs of up to £636,132 (avg. boost to houses near Beaconsfield High School).

Of course, the amount by which house prices are boosted depends on the area, how good the school is, and the relative scarcity of good schools (or affordable private schools) in the area.

Another reason to lobby for investment in our state education system!
