I'd tried to centre it in an area near the fire station for your benefit, but it might not have worked properly, or it might just be illustrating my point (that if you live near the fire station then you live a long way from any secondary schools).
When I searched based on where we live (near the Globe Academy), it clearly showed the Globe. However, from there heading west, you have to travel a fair way to find another secondary school.
To me, there's a debate about whether we want SE1 to be a place where you can put down roots as a family, and can bring up and educate children, or whether we want it to be a place where rich middle aged people live in penthouses and young professionals fight rising rents to try and hang on for a few years before moving out of town.
