When it comes to choosing the right school for your children, there are some very good ones across Derbyshire. Mickleover Primary School on the outskirts of Derby has been ranked as one of the county’s best options for younger children. Meanwhile, Lawn Primary School in Allestree has also been rated as outstanding by Ofsted.
For older kids, Landau Forte College in the centre of Derby has been named one of the county’s best secondary schools. It’s outstanding in Ofsted’s books, and shares that honour with Chesterfield’s St Mary’s Catholic High School.
How are the Derbyshire transport links?
The M1 is the only motorway which passes through Derbyshire, with a stretch in the county’s north east and another short burst in the south east. A network of A roads connects most parts of the area with each other, as well as a number of bus and train services. Derbyshire County Council also supports community transport and school transport schemes to help people with restricted access to other services and families with children.
What is the Derbyshire property scene like?
Derbyshire has a strong property scene, with the county seeing a greater rise in house prices than the average across England and Wales in recent years. The reputation of schools in places like Mickleover has helped with that, and you can find everything from 2 bed semis to large 4 bed townhouses in this area.
There’s an array of 3 and 4 bed houses in nearby Littleover, as well as plenty of options on the edge of Buxton which are surrounded by miles of beautiful natural landscapes.
