Parents face state school premium

nts

nts have to pay three times the average annual private school fees on their house if they want to get in the catchment range of a top state school, Lloyds TSB claimed today. During 2012, house prices in the postal districts of the top 30 state schools – judged by GCSE results in the previous year – were on average £33,631, or 12 per cent, higher than prices in neighbouring locations. Some schools commanded even higher premia – first placed was the Henrietta Barnett School in north London, where parents faced a premium of £394,282.
