There are three primary schools in the area; Green End Primary School, St Bernard’s RC Primary School and Acacias Primary, which are all popular with local families.

And, if you’re looking to keep fit, Arcadia Leisure Centre is just a few minutes’ drive away, with a swimming pool and gym facilities.
