Dogsthorpe County Infant and Junior and All Saints Church of England (Voluntary Aided) Junior schools are located in the area; following the closure of John Mansfield School in July 2007, secondary pupils attend the flagship Thomas Deacon Academy which opened in September 2007. Marshfields, a special school for pupils aged 10–19 with moderate learning difficulties, is also located here.
The adjacent Welland Estate was designed by Brian Ward in the 1960s and based on the Radburn, New Jersey housing layout in the United States, which separates cars from housing so that the majority of houses are accessible from the front only by footpaths. A downside of this design is that it creates poor surveillance particularly for cars parked at the rear of the estate. However, a benefit is that it contains extensive green spaces, footpaths and alleyways linking streets in and around the estate.
