Moving to Newbury – Schools and Childcare Information

Moving to a new area with a young family might seem like a daunting task, but it’s also an exciting new adventure for you and your little ones. However, it will take a lot of planning to make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. And you should consider starting today to make things easier. For people who are relocating with young children, there are specific additional considerations and organising that need to happen well in advance of your arrival.

If there’s one thing the Camp Hopson team can guarantee is Newbury is an excellent place to set up home. The education system is widely recognised for its excellence in Ofsted, and the area is a popular choice for families. We all need assistance when moving, so here is the Camp Hopson guide to schools and childcare information.

Five Tips on Finding Childcare and School Information –

Start your research and planning today – There is no such thing as preparing too much or too early. If you can start by doing some initial research today, then do so. Even some initial Google searches will provide you with general educational and general information specific to Newbury.

Contact the council for informationWest Berkshire Council are an excellent resource, and you should check out the information they offer. Whether it’s a list of local schools or childcare provisions, they will have them or can refer you. Additionally, they have an extensive library of information on Newbury.

List all schools plus necessary information – If you’re not sure about the exact location of your new home in Newbury or Berkshire, start by creating a list of all primary and secondary schools in relation to the age of your children. You can check each institution by Ofsted score as well as any additional achievements online.

Repeat for childcare and nurseries – You can repeat this process for childcare and preschools in Newbury. Although Ofsted doesn’t report all nurseries, some do apply for this process. This is typically a good indicator that they have high standards. Either way, most childcare professionals are online, and previous customers will provide a rating for their services.

Arrange to visit Newbury a few times – This is one that we suggest any potential Newbury residents undertake. You need to get to know Newbury and the surrounding areas first-hand. Google is an excellent resource, but it’s not a substitute for the lived experience. Newbury has some notable places to visit and lots of B&Bs and hotels so that you can make a weekend getaway for the family.

What Makes Newbury Appealing for Young Families –

In addition to the educational advantages of locating here, Newbury is a lovely place to live with plenty for you and the kids to do. House prices are affordable with lots of choices for all budgets, so you’ll need to put together a wish list of what your specifications are. It’s a safe area with low crime and high levels of employment, which means the local economy is sustainable.

Newbury is also a business hub that works with national and multinational companies with major pedigree. Many major corporations have their head offices here, employing tens of thousands of people from the area. We also have a vibrant SME community, and residents take buying local seriously because of the positive impact it has.

Newbury has excellent transport links to Berkshire and throughout Southern England, which includes connections to the rest of the UK. You’ll also be close enough to London if you have business interests, as well as being able to enjoy weekends there. Most of all and possibly the most vital aspect – the quality of life here is worth the relocation alone.
