Why Move to Wanstead
Wanstead sits within the London Borough of Redbridge, around 8 Miles from Charing Cross station. Once a favourite hunting ground for Henry VII, Wanstead is said to be East London’s answer to Twickenham.
This great town now oozes a cool arty vibe becoming one of the many trendy areas to live outside of London’s busy centre. Wanstead makes the perfect place to raise a family or for retirement. The village-like feel to the place provides a strong sense of community spirit.
The district benefits from having several green areas close by – Wanstead Park, Wanstead Flats and Epping Forest. Plus, Wanstead is just a stone’s throw from other busy East London areas such as Walthamstow, Ilford, and Leyton.
An abundance of local shops is available, and you will find major names such as M&S, Tesco, and Sainsbury’s alongside some interesting independents. In fact, Wanstead High Street is arguably the area’s key strength which means that you don’t have to travel far for all your retail requirements.
Wanstead monthly Farmers Market hits the spot for those who prefer purchasing organic food and craft products.
A night out is well catered for as the district has plenty of great eateries and bars to choose from, negating the need to travel into central London, for most of the time at least.
Getting around by rail is either via Wanstead Tube station, at one end of the High Street or Snaresbrook Tube at the other, both are on the Central line with trains to the City and West End. Alternatively, you can be out of the town in quick time by car as the North Circular, A12 and M11 link road sit nearby.
This gentrified part of the East End has certainly gone through many changes during the past few hundred years. But, one thing is for sure, it gives those who live here the perfect balance between city living and quiet convenience amidst a vibrant community.
Schools & Education
Those new to the area with children have access to state, private, grammar and special schools.
Most state schools in the area are performing well such as the “outstanding” Aldersbrook Primary and Barclay Primary and a high number of local schools are in the “good” Ofsted category.
Following its inspection 2013, Wanstead High School was found to be “requiring improvement”. However, since then it has had a full inspection in 2015 and a short one in 2019 and has improved substantially. Ofsted has now rated it as a “good” school.
Two grammar schools serve the town, Ilford County High (boys, ages 11 to 18) in Ilford and Woodford County High (girls, ages 11 to 18) in Woodford Green.
Snaresbrook Preparatory, St Joseph’s Convent School RC, Forest School and Bancroft’s provide private education covering ages 3-18 years.
The wider region has plenty of choices when it comes to further and higher education.
