Our powerful interactive schools map and schools list can be integrated seamlessly
into your website
within minutes, providing your clients with unparalleled information on schools and nurseries.
Established in 2010, our schools plugin is running on hundreds of websites and trusted
by some of the largest estate agencies in the UK.
Schools are a key selling point; numerous surveys continually show schools are extremely important to parents when moving home.
We provide a plugin (or schools widget) that allows you to display all the schools and nurseries around a property you are marketing seamlessly on your website, on a map or in a list.
Websites using our plugin regularly receive coveted industry awards, e.g. The Negotiator Website of the Year 2018 and UK Property Awards, Best Estate Agency Website UK 2018-2019.
Map markers also indicate the location of many thousands of railway stations and other forms of public transport; including underground stations, tram stops, metro and light railway stations.
Users can view the distance to and plan a journey from any one of these locations.
You can also display a separate list of local stations using our public transport plugin.
Our fully responsive schools plugin slots seamlessly into your website, ensuring you retain your own look and feel and that visitors do not leave your site.
It is highly configurable, so you can customize it to meet your every need, such as setting the map style or applying filters to schools.
We collate, cleanse and check data from a large array of sources for over 60,000 schools and nurseries. All our data is automatically updated at least once a month.
Our plugin was established in 2012 and we currently have well in excess of 100 estate agency brands using it on their websites, including some of the largest in the UK.
Installation of our schools API and plugin is just a couple of lines or code, meaning no expensive setup or maintenance costs.
Once installed we can push updates automatically so you don't ever need to change your website again.
Prices are dependent upon the number of branches in your organisation, please contact us for a quote. No payment is due until the plugin goes live on your site.
There is no minimum contract period and you can cancel at any time (subject to 30 days' notice). There are absolutely no hidden charges or surprise fees.
Our servers run under CloudFlare, which provides us protection against a multitude of web threats such as Denial of Service attacks.
It also allows us to switch instantly between servers in the event of hardware failures etc. providing near constant up-time.
We never rest on our laurels; we continually innovate, enhancing existing features and adding exciting new ones to ensure our plugin is the very best it can be.
We provide free technical support should you have any issues with our plugin. Including helping to get it setup on your site.
When you’re asked about schools and nurseries, you’ll have up to date, detailed and expert knowledge easily to hand.
Don't assume that your property portal is providing accurate and up-to-date schools information, our research has shown that portal data is often out of date, inaccurate and unreliable.
Vendors and landlords are savvy, they research local agents and are looking for the one with the best website and marketing so they are ultimately able to achieve the best price for their property.
For example, if a local school is good or even outstanding the vendor/landlord will want you to be highlighting this information to maximise their property's potential.
Our clients have told us that since integrating our schools plugin they have noticed significant increases in the time visitors spend on their websites, as well as receiving lots of positive feedback in general.
Increased traffic and time spent on your site will have a positive effect on your Google search rankings.
Our maps are used on over 200 websites, including some of the largest estate agencies in the UK.
The likelihood is that one of your competitors is using our maps already, don't lose instructions to them.

Working with Erica and Lewis is a pleasure and a hassle-free relationship...
Working with Erica and Lewis is a pleasure and a hassle-free relationship. We had been searching for a solution for our digital brochures that would enable Real Media to display schools and transport links in proximity to the property within the brochure. After trailing several possible solutions, choosing Locrating was a very easy decision.
In terms of final product, it is extremely user-friendly and enhances our overall brochure offering to clients, and they love it!
Locrating have been fantastic since we started using their schools data.

The team at Starberry absolutely love the Locrating Schools Module.
The team at Starberry absolutely love the Locrating Schools Module and have been integrating this module into websites we build [since 2013]. This is great product that offers a wealth of information about local schools and makes the websites we build so much more informative.
In addition, the knowledge, expertise & friendliness of the team at Locrating makes working with them a fantastic experience.
It is noticeable from our website analytics that the school maps are extremely popular .
Erica contacted me 3 years ago and simply asked whether we would be interested in Locrating’s school information feed. When she explained this was a simple plug-in, could be set up within hours and I didn’t need to lift a finger, I was sold.
True to her word, the team worked closely with our web developer and within no time we had very impressive local school and catchment area maps. It is noticeable from our website analytics that the school maps are extremely popular and because the information is sourced from Ofsted we can ensure that the public know it’s from an independent body rather than our opinion about schools. Erica’s sales pitch is soft which is refreshing in a world where everyone’s trying to sell you the next big thing. Locrating are also open to new ideas and we have worked with them to include user friendly instructions.
We regularly receive positive feedback from our clients for our school and transport features.
