Houses to rent in Caerphilly could offer good education

Houses to rent in Caerphilly could allow families to take advantage of the increased expenditure on education in Wales.

Figures from the Welsh Assembly show that, in 2009-10, budgets per pupil in England rose by 2.4 per cent compared with the previous year.

However, in Wales, they increased by a greater proportion, with 2.8 per cent more being spent on education per person.

Families looking to relocate could find houses to rent in Caerphilly help them to benefit from the increased education budget in Wales.

Data from the Welsh Assembly Government's StatsWales service shows more than £140 million was spent by the local authority on education in the 2008-09 year.

Caerphilly is not the only Welsh region spending around £150 million on education each year.

In Carmarthenshire the 2008-09 budget totalled £139,385,000 while Swansea schools spent a total of £160,048,000.

The Cardiff region, perhaps unsurprisingly, had the greatest schools expenditure of the year at more than £230 million.ADNFCR-1222-ID-19587265-ADNFCR
