Why Move to Corby
Corby lies in the large county of Northamptonshire, often referred to as “the rose of the shires”. Geographically, it sits close to the towns of Kettering, Rutland and Harborough.
Following the opening of the Steelworks (now known as Tata Steel), the once small village quickly grew into a bustling town attracting an influx of workers from all over the country. To this day Corby is still expanding. Regeneration works in recent years have practically re-built the whole town.
Rail connection improvements have now made Corby an attractive proposition for commuters, offering a journey of just over an hour directly into St Pancras station.
Astonishingly, despite this huge growth, property prices remain low. Growth is expected to continue at a rapid rate, and the population is projected to top 100,000 within the next 20 years.
Many of the current residents of the town commute, not just to London, but to other large towns in the area as both rail and road links are extremely efficient and convenient. Corby benefits by having four major airports located within a two-hour drive: Birmingham, Stansted, East Midlands and Luton.
Recreationally, Corby provides a huge number of recreational activities for its residents, particularly outdoorsy attractions thanks to the miles of beautiful countryside on its doorstep. The town has great amenities that people are willing to travel far and wide to access such as the Willow Place Shopping Centre, packed full of retailers and restaurants and fast-food outlets.
For people who are looking to move to a modern town full of all the best amenities plus, an abundance of well-priced homes situated close to open countryside, Corby is worthy of serious consideration.
Schools & Education
Planning ahead when you are relocating to a new area with children is vital.
Researching what schools are available and how well they perform could impact on which neighbourhood you choose to reside in.
To make the process easier, you can search websites such as Ofsted to start creating a school shortlist prior to the move.
Corby has 17 primary schools, of which two are Church of England schools, three are Roman Catholic and one is for children with severe behavioural and emotional difficulties.
Primary schools perform well, many are “good” with a number of them attaining the highest goal of “outstanding” following their most recent Ofsted inspections, these include Maplefields Academy and Corby Primary Academy.
Secondaries have also performed particularly well with two schools in Corby’s catchment area having been awarded “outstanding” by Ofsted: Brooke Weston Academy and Corby Technical School.
The Corby campus of Tresham Institute of Further and Higher Education provides a range of vocational courses for post-16 students and adult learners.
The nearest universities are the University of Northampton, 23 miles and both the University of Leicester and De Montfort University in Leicester, 25 miles away.
Things to do in Corby
Corby has plenty to offer when it comes to entertainment and visitor attractions.
Especially so for outdoor attractions as the district has a huge range of green spaces to explore.
Here is just a small selection of things to do in and around the area:
The annual Highland Festival celebrates Corby’s strong Scottish links. Featuring pipe bands and highland dancing it is always a fantastic day out for all of the family.
Rockingham Forest, an ancient woodland covering an area of 200 square miles was once William the Conqueror’s favourite hunting forest. A popular place to enjoy the fresh air and wide-open space.
Sitting proudly within the Forest is Rockingham Castle. Open to the public, it is a remarkably informative place to visit.
Ten minutes by road from Corby is Fermyn Woods Country Park. A real family attraction offering lots of walking trails, play areas, fishing, and wildlife. Home to lots of creatures such as jays, squirrels, deer, and red kites.
Corby Boating Lake is situated in the heart of Corby. The lake boasts a wide range of geese and ducks. Fishing is available and the Hazel and Thoroughsale Woods offer three attractive walks.
Corby Heritage Centre is a 17th-century grade two listed building in what is known locally as Corby’s Old Village. The centre holds regular exhibitions which are free to attend, and its displays are changed regularly so you can visit again and again.
The area is made up of Corby town, as well as a group of smaller villages, giving those buying a new home in Corby plenty of choice.
Whilst the town offers prospective buyers an assortment of styles, it is the 1950 and 1960s properties make up the bulk of homes currently available.
However, this is changing year on year as the town’s transformation continues and new build sites are snapped up by developers such as Wimpey and Persimmon.
In the typically ‘countryside’ villages outside the town, you can still find some sought-after traditionally built “honey-stone cottages” and other more rural dwellings. Upper Benefield and Cottingham are villages many consider extremely desirable.
The best part about searching for a home in Corby is its property prices which are up to 60-70% cheaper when compared to the capital.

You will pay an average of £122,264 for a one-bedroom property, £186,958 for a terraced home, £231,275 for a semi and £343,009 for a detached property.
