Living near the best schools is a priority for any parent.

Being able to send their child to a school that is outstanding according to school inspector Ofsted is often a factor in where families set up home.

We've created an interactive map - using data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and Ofsted - which shows you how much it will cost to buy a house near top schools in your area.

Here's a run down of house prices in areas of Redbridge with top-rated schools:

There are five outstanding schools in the Chadwell Heath area, which has significant variation in house prices depending on the specific neighbourhood.
