Why Move to Hertfordshire?
Hertfordshire (or Herts) has pretty much topped most rankings over the years when it comes to “best, happiest or most convenient places to live”. This affluent county is bordered by Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire to the north, Essex to the east, Greater London to the south, and Buckinghamshire to the west. Sitting on London’s northern perimeter means that for regular commuters into the capital, Hertfordshire has some prime locations which make light work of the journey.
Two major airports are nearby, Luton and Stansted providing hundreds of UK, European and International flights to hundreds of locations. Cambridge, St Albans, Edgeware, Welwyn Garden City, and Stevenage for example, are all within less than 45 minutes from London and all much sought-after locations. Not only do these wonderful places make travel easy, but they each also have unique qualities to offer when it comes to recreational activities.
Plus, the county has access to plenty of rural delights, also perfect for relaxing and getting back to nature. Hertfordshire borders the Chiltern AONB which leads directly onto the North Wessex Downs AONB, so there is absolutely no shortage of large open spaces.
Education is well catered for; Hertfordshire is home to 26 independent schools and 73 state secondary schools. The University of Hertfordshire is a modern university based largely in Hatfield. It has more than 23,000 students.
It has been said many times before about plenty of towns and cities but, Hertfordshire is one of those places which is incredibly hard to beat. A practical, aesthetically pleasing location, Hertfordshire is full of great attractions and high-performing schools. This fabulous fusion provides a unique quality of life for those who reside here.
Hertfordshire Schools & Education
Education will be a priority for many. Moving to a new location can be a minefield for the majority of parents and a major factor in deciding where exactly you need to start your house search.
There is no need to worry unduly as Hertfordshire’s schools do very well in the performance stakes.
Parents are faced with literally hundreds of schools for the 5-11 age group. Many of these schools perform incredibly well with 76 achieving Ofsted’s most coveted award of “outstanding”.
Primary school admissions are handled via the Hertfordshire Government website.
For the 11–18-year age group, secondary schools are entirely comprehensive, although 7 schools in the south and southwest of the county are partially selective.
All state schools have sixth forms, and there are no sixth form colleges. Again, to apply for a school place at one of the county’s secondary or upper schools simply visit.
There is a good selection of tertiary colleges, each has multiple campuses, Hertford Regional College, North Hertfordshire College, Oaklands College, and West Herts College have great reputations.
A higher than the national average (42.2%) of pupils in Hertfordshire go on to enrol in higher education.
Local higher education is provided for by The University of Hertfordshire is a modern university based largely in Hatfield.
As of 2021, UOH has over 25,130 students, including more than 5,200 international students that together represent 100 countries.
If the budget allows, Hertfordshire has some fantastic independent schools providing private education from nursery through to further education.

Working in Hertfordshire
Hertfordshire possesses distinct geographical, cultural, and historical advantages when it comes to its economy with the majority of Hertfordshire’s workforce being highly skilled.
As the county is so well connected and sits close to several large towns and of course London, gaining employment is made that much more attainable here.
One of the largest sectors of the county’s economy is in services and as much of the region is protected by green belt, agriculture features highly in its economy.
Hertfordshire University is another of Hertfordshire’s largest employers with over 2,700 staff, 812 of whom are academic members of staff.
You will find the area has the main operational and/or headquarters sites of some very large employers: In Stevenage, MBDA has a base, a subsidiary of BAE Systems, Airbus, and Finmeccanica, it primarily develops missiles. In the same town, Airbus (Defence & Space Division) produces satellites.
Tesco’s UK headquarters sits in Welwyn Garden City, and Watford has numerous well-known companies such as JD Wetherspoon, Camelot Company, Total Oil, Beko, and many more.
Harlow is also attracting investment and developing a reputation as a science and pharmaceutical hub. In fact, according to the online job agency Reed.co.uk, there are over 8000 available positions vacant in the county covering all types of skills and experience.
As 86% of the 16-64 age group is employed across the county, with a little dedication and patience, you will land your dream job somewhere in Hertfordshire.
Things to do in Hertfordshire
Like most of the UK’s counties, Hertfordshire is awash with attractions for all ages.
Indoor, outdoor, town, or country, there are far too many to mention here but these are a few of the county highlights you must try:
Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour – https://harry-potter.london-studio-tours.com/
Chiltern Hills AONB – www.chilternsaonb.org
St Albans Cathedral – www.stalbanscathedral.org

Hertford Castle – www.hertfordcastle.co.uk
The county consists of 10 districts and boroughs, house hunters are faced with endless possibilities in Hertfordshire.
Homes across the region sell for an average of £522,816, making it an expensive location for most.
For those set on escaping from the capital, however, the average cost of a home is still reasonable in comparison to London’s average of £704,138.
You may be interested in being in the thick of it all so the county’s larger towns and cities will probably appeal most. Hemel Hempstead, Hitchin, and St Albans are the largest by population.
For those seeking a genuine rural community Northeast Hertfordshire has some lovely villages, with Standham, Flaunsden, and Hunsdon being among some of the best.
Others may want a country lifestyle but remain near the best schools, fashionable retail, and top-quality restaurants. Try Hatfield, Cheshunt, and Harpenden.
From modern new builds to Tudor or Georgian architecture, large or small, city or country, among Hertfordshire’s 5400 homes on the property market, there is going to be that special one just right for you.
