Moving into the Area

If you are considering moving into the area as a member of staff, do not be put off by the house prices in the immediate vicinity.  Most of our teaching staff live outside of catchment with the most popular locations being Bracknell, Camberley, Farnborough, Reading, Windsor and Wokingham.  Check out this link to Right Move to compare prices.  You may also like to look at Genesis Housing Association website which offers accommodation options. 

All areas are well provided for with good shopping and leisure facilities and excellent transport links.  Bracknell, which has lagged behind, is the subject of an overdue but now exciting redevelopment which will bring the next generation of shopping and leisure destinations to the town centre.
