Schools close to Green Hills

Green Hills is the perfect development for education

If you have young children and want a lovely new family home close to great schools in Blackburn, Green Hills has just what you’re looking for.

According to research by Rightmove, parents fork out up to £40,000 more on their new homes to get their children into the best primary schools.

Of course, many existing homeowners and estate agents know this and put a premium on house prices close to good-performing schools.

So savvy parents looking for a new home close to great schools know the best deals can be found by reserving a new-build home ‘off plan’.

Amazingly, within just one mile of Green Hills, parents can choose from an incredible six primary and junior schools rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.

Blackburn the Redeemer Primary School is just 0.1 miles away from Green Hills and is rated Outstanding. Longshaw Infant, Meadowhead Junior, Meadowhead Infant, Lower Darwen Primary and Longshaw Community are all within a one-mile radius of Green Hills and all are rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, according to Rightmove’s School Checker*.

Andrea Fortune, development manager at Kingswood Homes, said: “Being within the catchment area of the highest performing primary schools is incredibly important to parents and research has shown that the value of properties within these areas comes at a premium.

“That’s why new-build homes offer such great value for parents wanting to get close to the best schools. By reserving a new home off-plan, (meaning reserving a plot before the house in fully built), you get the best possible prices without having to factor in a ‘good school premium’ from current owners looking to sell. You can also expect to charge a premium for your home should you decide to move on in future years.

“Developers offer the lowest prices for people who can reserve their new homes before the build is complete, so now is an ideal time to maximise the value in your new home and give your children access to the highest rated standards of education.”

There are currently a range of three and four-bedroom homes on offer off-plan in the first phase of Green Hills Blackburn starting from just £179,950.
