From the affluence of Montpellier to the trends of the Brewery Quarter, Cheltenham is brimming with attractions to suit all of the family, which could be why more and more people are starting families here.
Year on year, the amount of childbirths across Gloucestershire have grown, a figure which could be attributed to the large amount on offer to families across the county.
Cheltenham is home to 14 schools rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. This is on top of the multitude of educational events children in Gloucestershire can attend during festival season, including the world-renowned science and literature festivals.
The educational assets that Cheltenham has to offer may be to credit for the influx of parents flocking to the spa town.
