Why Move to Cheshunt?
Although the county of Hertfordshire may not have the glamour that its posh neighbours Surrey and Sussex have, this 634-square mile swathe of the country, north of the capital contains some of England’s loveliest towns and villages in the UK.
Cheshunt is just one of these towns. Lying entirely within the London Metropolitan Area and Greater London Urban Area. It is 12 miles north of central London and has a population of around 53,000.
Already well established by the time it appeared in the Doomsday book of 1086, with settlements dating back to the Roman occupation, Cheshunt made history as the birthplace of the first monorail for passengers. Known as the Cheshunt Railway, it was a horse drawn carriage on rails which transported children to school.
The urban part of the town lies at the eastern end, east of the New River Lee, which flows through the parish; the rural and more thinly-populated district is found in the western, higher-lying ground, and consists chiefly of scattered farms and parks, with Cheshunt Common extending to the western border.
The town is a great mix of traditional and modern life, with fantastic outdoor space, plenty of shops and restaurants and the latest sporting facilities.
It is the hometown of Lotus Cars and was once the headquarters of the UK’s largest supermarket chain Tesco until 2016.
Famous faces from the area include musician Cliff Richard, four-time Olympic gold medal winning cyclist Laura Kenny, and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham.
Cheshunt is conveniently placed less than half an hour’s journey into Liverpool Street Station and 40 minutes into Charing Cross station, its far enough from the city to have a rural, leafy feel, whilst being close enough to London for an easy commute. Its busy rail station offers a host of other destinations for either work purposes or leisure.
Whilst residents here may pay a premium by living in Cheshunt due to its higher than the National average price for property, it is well worth paying the extra for its fantastic amenities and green spaces.
Cheshunt Schools & Education
Cheshunt has a good range of nursery, primary and secondary schools to choose from as well has several private schools.
Within a two-mile radius of the town there are 8 primaries, most of which are rated as being “good” by Ofsted.
The only “outstanding” rated primary is Flamstead End School. Children at the school are performing very well with 85% of them achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and maths, well above the UK overall average of 64%.
The four high schools serving the town are:
Goffs Churchgate Academy
St Mary’s Church of England High School
Goffs School has been rated as one of the best in the area and was rated as “good” following its last Ofsted inspection.
The closest further education provider is Hertford Regional College. Located over two sites in Hertfordshire it offers students a huge choice of courses over a broad range of subjects.
