Hi greener. I live in Droitwich Spa and I really like it here. Parts of Worcester and Pershore/Evesham are nice.

A lot of Worcestershire does the 3 tier system with Middle schools and High school in Year 8, but it has been fine.

Can recommend Pershore - it's a lovely little market town with some pretty good schools. The outlying villages are lovely and are very middle class ( Little Comberton, Elmley Castle, Fladbury and Cropthorne etc) are my area and are lovely - lots of professional families who send their children to the local state schools sometimes following on with private schools in Worcester (Kings, Grammar with Alice Otley) But, not always Prince Henry's in Evesham is a good secondary state school. I can't compare it to other areas as I've always lived this way, but this area may be a good starting point for you.
Allan Morris and Osborne (I don't work there smile) is a local estate agent in Pershore who could give you some advice (people who work there live in these villages).

DS1 goes to Pershore High Damson. It is lovely over that way.

Thanks Sparkling we love living here, too - it's a handy to reach Worcester and Cheltenham for "proper" shopping and in between Pershore and Evesham for the every day stuff.
Pershore High is another good school, as well - we are spoilt for choice around here smile

Greener2, we live in Harvington which is a nice sized village outside Evesham. It has a lovely feel to it, a nice pre-school and village school, and a lovely community spirit. It also has a lot of activities for children, different groups etc. Its in the catchment area for Prince Henry's which is a great secondary school. Hope that helps smile

Sorry greener I abandoned you. I just wondered if you were talking Secondary School age. Don't know anything about the primaries these days sorry.
