Oakham is the sixth best place in the country to bring up a family, according to a recent survey.
A study undertaken by Family Investments has revealed that the town is among the best locations for parents and their children to live.
The Family Friendly Investment Report looked at 2,400 postcodes across England and Wales, studying factors that cover the essentials of family living including school results, crime figures and house prices, as well as parks and green spaces, leisure centres and museums and theatres.
Oakham scored above the national average in its school’s Key Stage 2 results, its percentage of early years care ranked outstanding, and scored far lower than the average crime per capita.
Wokingham in Berkshire topped the list.
Would you agree with the survey? Is Oakham one of the best locations in the country for families?
