EducationAs the name suggests, Blaise Park couldn’t be more convenient for St Blaise CofE Primary School, with this OFSTED ‘good’ rated school right on your doorstep. You certainly won’t need the car for the school run! Alternatively, Hartwell primary School is just a short drive away, and is also rated ‘good’.
There is no OFSTED rating yet for Aureus Secondary, because this brand new, £19million school has only just been built, offering brand new, state of the art facilities just a short bus ride from the development.

LeisureWith countryside this beautiful to explore, you don’t really need leisure facilities to fill your time. But if you do want something different to do, there’s plenty to choose from. Didcot is home to no less than three leisure centres, catering for a range of sports, and Drayton Park golf course is also just a short drive away. Milton even has its own non-league football team, Milton United.
Didcot is home to the Cineworld cinema and the Cornerstone Arts Centre, and there is much more culture to be found in nearby Oxford. From the famous Ashmolean Museum and Bodleian Library, to the countless theatres presenting everything from major national tours to local student productions, there’s something for everyone among the dreaming spires.
