Wandsworth Schools & Education
Education provision will be a concern if you have children or are planning a family in the near future.
Although the wider Borough has a wide range of schools to choose from, both private and state, it will depend on where you choose to live as to what is directly available.
It pays to do some research well before you move. Wandsworth Council are responsible for overseeing the local education provision and their web site is a good place to start your search:
Whilst the majority of schools have been rated as “good” by Ofsted a number have managed to reach a little further and have been given the highly regarded rating of “outstanding.
Schools in this category include St Michael’s CofE Primary School, Brandlehow Primary School and for 16-18 years, Ashcroft Technology Academy.
There are a few further education colleges to choose from in the vicinity, however South Thames College is situated in the heart of Wandsworth.
The college is part of a large further education network which includes three other colleges: Kingston College, Merton College, and Carshalton College. As of 2020, STCG has over 5,300 students each on study and adult programmes.
Wandsworth is home to some prestigious private schools, including Eaton House The Manor, The Roche School and Wandsworth Preparatory School.

Sports venues, leisure centres, open space, and a riverside setting means that no matter where your interest lay, you are guaranteed to be satisfied.
Nearby Green space includes Wandsworth Common, Wandsworth Park, Clapham Common and King George’s Park.
The largest is Wandsworth Common 172 acres offering a number of ponds and a lake, which can be used for fishing. The lake is partially fenced off for the benefit of bird life, while other areas feature wooden pedestrian board walks, or open water’s edge access.

Due to its size anywhere in the borough would make a good location, however, there are always going to be some neighbourhoods which are more in demand.
For Wandsworth these are Balham, Putney or Clapham but expect to pay a little more for these areas.
The Tonsleys/Old York Road is a residential area of old Wandsworth close to the river and town centre, so called because many of the street names have the word “Tonsley” included. It has a charming village feel with the Old York Road’s cafes and shops at its heart.
