Why Move to Lytham
The Fylde Coast town of Lytham stands on the banks of the River Ribble where it meets the Irish Sea. Situated in the county of Lancashire it is renowned internationally for exceptional golf courses, including one of the host courses for the British Open. The town lays within a reasonably affluent area with residents’ earnings among the highest in the North of England.
The foundations of Lytham go back as far as 600 BC and for many centuries its economy was dependent on fishing and shrimping, until the advent of tourism and seaside health cures. Later, with the onset of the Industrial Revolution, rich industrialists relocated from unhealthy overpopulated cities in the region in favour of smaller towns and villages such as Lytham.
Clifton Street is the main shopping area in Lytham. An attractive tree lined road which bursts into colour every year with the help of the highly successful Lytham in Bloom association. A compact town centre which offers all sorts of interesting shops, mostly independents side by side with a few high street names. The town enjoys a close family orientated community feel with a range of clubs open to all such as Lytham Ladies Circle or the Lytham Heritage Group.
There are all sorts of well attended festivals held annually with the 1940’s Wartime Weekend being a firm favourite; a brilliant weekend of entertainment, re-enactment and have-a-go fun. The towns reputation is an undeniable envious one. Relatively little crime, its coastal location, good shops, great scenery, adequate facilities, and a pleasant atmosphere have turned what was once considered to be largely a retirement haven, into a honeypot for businesspeople, wealthy footballers, and young families alike.
Lytham Schools & Education
Having a choice of good schools is an essential factor when you are relocating with a young family.
The Lytham area has access to some well-regarded schools, state as well as independent for young children through to secondary education and sixth form.
Lytham Hall Park Primary School, Lytham Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School and St Peter’s Catholic Primary School all obtained a rating of “good” from their last Ofsted inspections.
For secondary education and sixth form provision, Lytham St Annes High School is an 11–16 Comprehensive school and is one of the largest schools in Lancashire with around 1450 students in attendance. Ofsted rated its performance as “good”
The closest college of further education is in nearby Blackpool. The Blackpool and The Fylde College offers a comprehensive range of school leaver programmes. Ranked in the top 2% of all colleges in England for school leaver success it has been judged “outstanding” by Ofsted,
