Families are attracted to the suburban feel of Sutton

The Borough of Sutton is located in the South West of London, with Croydon situated to the east and Merton to the North. The area is well known, offering a number of attractions for residents. Whatever it is that ultimately draws you towards the suburbs, whether it is the low crime rate or the outstanding academic results, we can assure you that choosing to live there is an excellent decision.

If you are a new couple who is looking to raise a family, then we cannot recommend Sutton nearly enough. To begin with, it is considered one of the six safest places to live in London and with good reason. With the crime rate lower than the UK average people have confidence in their safety.

Among the housing options are Victorian terraces which are a popular choice for families and young professionals. The larger homes are spacious and the suburban setting also means there tends to be more space outdoors to enjoy too. Both of these factors are big attractions to families.

As a couple or family, you will want to think about what is best for your children and the schools in the Borough offer some of the finest education in the country. In 2011 Sutton was placed at the top of the GCSE league tables with the average percentage of pupils achieving five A* to C grades being 74.7%. On top of this it was announced recently that two schools in the area were named the best in the country. Stanley Park High School was given the honour of “Best Secondary School”, with Limes College being named the best alternative provision school. Primary schools have also had their fair share of recognition with them being described by Ofsted as “particularly impressive” in 2013.
