There will also be an opportunity to discuss any special requirements or questions you may have.
Once the consultation has been carried out, a free no obligation written quotation will follow within 48 hours.
Our quotation will outline exactly what is covered, as per your instructions and a price.
If you are not quite at the stage of wanting to receive a home visit you can still take advantage of our Guesstimate tool.

Why Move to Tameside?

Tameside began its growth following the arrival of the industrial revolution which changed it beyond recognition and dominated industry in the area between 1760 and 1840.
Today, Tameside possesses diverse employment opportunities amid industries such as biotechnology, the digital and creative sectors and advanced manufacturing. More and more Top 500 businesses are choosing to relocate to Tameside.

Tameside Schools & Education
Which school to choose is the question. Gone are the days when children automatically attend the school closest to home.
Not everyone is lucky enough to be able to get their children into their favoured school, however, by living in the catchment area of high performing schools you do at least stand a fighting chance.
Since 2007 Tameside’s schools have been transformed as the result of multimillion-pound investment which has resulted in virtually every high school being replaced or remodelled.
The popular Canon Burrows C of E Primary School, an Ofsted “outstanding” school sits within the catchment area of Oldham Rd, Ashton-under-Lyne, and St Christopher’s RC Primary School “good”, is located on St Christopher’s Rd, Ashton-under-Lyne, both highly recommended schools.
State schools for secondary aged children (11-18 years) which are sought after include St Damian’s RC Science College, “outstanding” says Ofsted and West Hill School rated as “good”.
Post 16 education is well provided for too. There are two sixth forms available, Ashton Sixth Form College and Clarendon Sixth Form College both located in Ashton-under-Lyne.
Tameside College of FE also in Ashton-under-Lyne, offers a range of courses for students from Tameside and the surrounding area. These courses include NVQs, BTECs, Apprenticeships, Access courses the college also runs adult learning in the evenings.
