Why Move to Stockton-on-Tees
Split between County Durham and North Yorkshire, Stockton on Tees is a large town with a population of around 80,000. Stockton-on-Tees is a beautiful and reasonably priced place to live. Stockton is an Anglo-Saxon name with the typical Anglo-Saxon place name ending ‘ton’ meaning farm, or homestead.
In an area of important cultural significance, Stockton was the place where George Stephenson’s first ever passenger railway was laid and where John Walker invented the friction match. Many of the old industries are gone, and for some years Stockton suffered a downturn in its economy. However, following a much-needed multi-million-pound redevelopment it is now seeing many more new businesses, shoppers and revellers attracted back to Stockton town centre.
The river Tees and historic architecture provides a quaint backdrop for events such as the weekly outdoor market. Having the highest levels of employment in the Northeast region during 2018, Stockton-on-Tees has become the powerhouse of the Tees Valley economy.
The Borough is one of five local authority areas and contributes around one-third of Tees Valley’s £12.8 billion annual economic output. Residents can enjoy a high standard of amenities.
The local Teesside Retail Park is easily accessible having all the shops and leisure facilities that you could ever need including Marks and Spencer, Next, Laura Ashley, a cinema, a casino, and many restaurants.
The area is served by excellent transport links including national train lines to London and Edinburgh, an airport and it enjoys some of the least congested motorways in the country.
Living in this location poses great employment opportunities. A fantastic standard of living plus the chance to explore everything Teesside and the wider region has to offer, Newcastle, Northumberland, and the Scottish Borders to Durham, York, and the stunning Yorkshire Dales.
Schools & Education
Education provision in the town has recently been experiencing a total transformation.
Millions of pounds in funding from the Government during 2021 is ensuring that children across the region have access to the absolute best educational facilities.
A massive choice of around 60 primaries, 13 secondaries, 4 special schools, two colleges, and several independent schools make up the educational provision for Stockton.
Based on their results, Harewood Primary is a good school for younger children. At this school, 85% of pupils achieved a higher standard in reading, writing & maths at key stage 2.
According to www.SchoolGuide.co.uk Egglescliffe School, a mainstream, state-funded co-ed senior school is in the top three secondary schools in the town.
