Why Move to Stockport?
The Metropolitan Borough of Stockport is a region of Greater Manchester in Northwest England.
Stockport has seen much change since its earlier emergence as an industrial hub when it was famed for manufacturing rope, silk, and hats.
“Future Stockport”, the local Council’s 32-year long-term plans for the town, has been bearing fruit.
Many ex-industrial areas around the town’s core are being brought back to productivity as mixed-use residential and commercial developments.
The reputation that Stockport was behind the times has dissolved, with the area being transformed into an upcoming vibrant location, ripe for business investment, plenty of employment opportunities and a revitalised property market.
Something the town has in abundance is community spirit.
Whilst Stockport has attracted some of the country’s biggest companies to the town such as SKY, Bank of America, HBO, and Siemens it has also managed to retain its own unique local character and independent traders.
A big bonus is that Stockport is located so close to Manchester, residents can enjoy the benefits of living in a town but be close to a wider choice of work and leisure opportunities only a city can offer.
Stockport also provides access to excellent road and rail network connections.
The M56 and M60 link both the North and South of the country as does the rail network with London which can be reached within a couple of hours. Manchester is just minutes away by rail.
All in all, Stockport has heaps going for it and will tick most of the “must have” boxes; easy travel links, job prospects in a growing economy, moderately priced property, some great schools, and the opportunity to experience a huge choice of things to do outside of work.
Stockport Schools & Education
Most larger towns have a good mix of schools and Stockport is no different. It offers a choice of state-funded and private education as well as several specialist schools.
Among the better primaries and rated “outstanding” by Ofsted are St Mary’s RC Primary, St Winifred’s Roman Catholic Primary, and Mersey Vale Primary School. All excellent choices for younger children.
Stockport College is based in the town centre. It is the closest further education provider for the town. The college has academic and vocational courses from pre-GCSE to degree level.
Things to do in Stockport
