Primary & Secondary School Properties

Commercial Properties Suitable for Primary and Secondary Schools for Sale or to Let

At Bernard Gordon and Co, we understand the challenge of finding a suitable property that meets the unique requirements of a school building. Formerly falling within planning use class D1, Schools now fall within use class F1. We have extensive knowledge and experience within this market sector and endeavor to maintain up to date changes in trends, legislation, and requirements crucial to your property search. We understand the need for specific classroom sizes, for external space, accessibility by car/bus/public transport, and most importantly, when dealing with children, we understand the need for safeguarding. Due to the very specific needs and requirements within this market sector we have the  experience to deal with former school buildings, as well as sites/buildings suitable for schools, subject to a change of use.

We have a selection of properties suitable for School use available to rent and buy. Take a look at the listings below and use the filters to sort properties for sale or to let.

Buying & Renting School Buildings

Bernard Gordon & Co are experts in the School property market, having worked in the sector for many years. We have experience in dealing with government-funded schools, though most of our work falls within the private sector, finding sites suitable for primary and secondary schools. We appreciate the difficulties in finding appropriate commercial premises across London and the Southeast, however, we utilise our knowledge of this sector and often find properties where comprise can be made, ensuring suitable solutions are offered and kept within safeguarding protocol.

We understand the nuances of school properties, for example, that the size of the property will determine the number of children that can attend. We have also handled properties suitable for school use that may require a change of use to Class F1. We can advise on this or introduce you to an expert who can assist further, such as an architect or planning consultant.
We stay on top of all trends within the market, and while we do have suitable properties and sites, due to the nature of the industry, we often have the opportunity to offer existing business sales, which we have found to be a popular way to help clients expand.
Please do get in contact to let us know your demands and see if we can guide you on your journey to find a suitable building.
