PARENTS will often consider moving to an area which has the best schools to ensure the best education for their children.

And one area in Berkshire has ranked as the best place to live for Outstanding schools.

Zoopla has revealed the lengths parents are willing to go to ensure their children get the best education.

And Windsor and Maidenhead has ranked as the 10th best place to live in England for outstanding schools.

36 per cent of primary schools in this area are rated as Outstanding by Ofsted, the highest award given when inspections are carried out.

Tom Parker, consumer expert at Zoopla, said: "From compromising on their finances to cutting back on practicalities in the home, paying nearly £29,000 more to live nearer to an Outstanding school is a priceless decision for parents, if it means their children can access the best education possible."

The property website's survey also shows people are willing to pay on average £28,986 extra for a home in Windsor and Maidenhead to be closer to an Outstanding school.

This suggests that living within a catchment area for the best education is a priority for many families.
