Moving Home. Moving School.

<< GO BACK

This week will be a very emotional time for parents across the U.K. Whether with joy that their children are no longer holed up in the house after a long hot summer, or in anxiety that their little ones are about to embark on their educational journey, it will prove to be an exhausting week for many.School Sign

Schools are often key criteria for many families when choosing a property to rent or buy. It is understandable. They’d want a property to be ideally located so that the children can enjoy a safe, daily walk from bedroom to classroom. Others opt to put themselves into the catchment areas for schools that are deemed to be ideal or preferred for their children.

The impact of moving home can be quite powerful upon children. Settling into a new domestic environment can be especially challenging, if they had grown accustomed to their former bedroom and home. It is usually advised that such a move can occur during an extensive holiday period such as that in summer, to allow time for children to settle into a new neighbourhood and maybe even make some new friends with the kids next door. This will ease the process of joining a new school, as they may already know some of their fellow classmates.

In some cases, moving home does also mean moving school. Even if you find the perfect home that suits all your requirements and is commutable to work, consider any changing school dynamics too. Children will need to adjust to new figures in their lives from teachers and classmates to new friendship groups.

Luckily most property listings highlight their vicinity to ideal schools, to make the process easier for home-seekers.  Indeed, moving home is not a purely a physical process. It is most definitely a psychological one too.
