Coventry named one of top ten best cities for raising a child

Coventry is one of the top ten best cities in which to raise children, a new study has found.

According to’s Family Living Index, the city made the list after a number of indicators were considered, including job opportunities and average income.

The study also looked at how many outstanding schools there were in areas across Britain, as well as parks, house prices and burglaries.

Newcastle in the north-east won the crown, and others in the top ten included Stoke and Oxford.

Coventry scored 4.34 on the index, which had a maximum score of 5. Birmingham scored 3.68, while Wolverhampton scored 4.36.

“The Family Living Index was created to guide parents – or soon to be parents – looking to future proof their next move,” said a MoneySupermarket spokesperson.
