*OneFamily obtained local childcare costs from more than 100 local authorities, however, not all authorities were able to provide data and for this reason some postcodes will not show detailed childcare figures.**Schools' average student point score for Key Stage 2 across all subjects. ***Percentage of Key Stage 4 pupils achieving grades A*-C in both English and Mathematics GCSEs at local schools

Average results are based on the postcodes that we have been able to include.

Because of the differences in the way data such as crime and education statistics are reported and collated in Scotland and Northern Ireland, we unfortunately couldn't find an accurate way of including it this time around. Postcodes without a residential population, such as business parks and warehouse areas, were also discounted from the final results. If your postcode is not coming up in this search, we suggest you try your next closest postcode.
