    What do forumites think of purchasing an IP accross the road from a school. It is a small school of about 300 students. Has a reasonably good name and is also an attractive and well maintained school.

    Why not?  but only if it was an IP suitable for families.    No good having a 1 bedder with singles or oldies as a target opposite a school.

    The main downsides to living next to a school are: parking issues, playground noise, traffic (drop off & pick ups), construction work (thanks to Wayne, Krudd & Jools).

    drawbacks are that the school bells are on an alarm system & ring all summer long (starting early in the AM) & sometimes there is some noise of kids playing on the swing set
