There is understandably a desire for families to buy a house within the catchment area of a good school.

Finding the perfect family home is one thing, but parents will also want to know if their property is going to be close to good schools so their children can get the best education possible.

And a great school can also have a big impact on the property market that surrounds it.

Chris Poole, the local property partner at Purplebricks estate agents, said: “I often say to vendors that headteachers probably don’t realise the ‘halo’ effect they have on the surrounding property market if they manage an outstanding school.

“I would say that a 10% housing price ‘bubble’ sits around the outstanding school catchment areas – so changes to a catchment can have big impact beyond those simply looking for a next school.”

And houses in Birmingham near top-rated schools can sell very quickly, so we’ve found five currently on the market with Purplebricks close by to some highly-rated schools by Ofsted.
