At Redrow, we understand the importance of great schools to our family homebuyers, and so we choose our locations carefully. At Becket’s rise you’ll find yourself within easy reach of an excellent choice, including the outstanding rated Castle Hill Infants and St Ann’s Catholic Primary, and the ‘good’ rated Kempshot Infants and Chiltern Primary. Older pupils have just as good a choice, with Fort Hill Community School, as well as the ‘good’ Bishop Challoner Catholic Secondary School and ‘good’ Aldworth School all within easy reach. Further education is offered at Basingstoke College of Technology and Queen Mary’s College.
Basingstoke has an excellent choice of modern shopping, including the Festival Place Shopping Centre and The Malls. The town also holds a popular market every Wednesday and Saturday, which can trace its heritage back over 800 years. The Top of the Town district is well worth a visit, with a wide range of quirky independent shops offering interesting and unusual goods that you wouldn’t normally find on the high street. If you prefer the simplicity of out of town shopping, try Hatch Warren or Brighton Hill retail parks, where you’ll find the usual mix of DIY, electricals and homewares.
