Relocating to London is as stressful as it is exciting. But you can multiply those stress levels several times over if you’re relocating with family, and therefore finding your children a new school.
At Craven House serviced apartments, we regularly welcome guests in the middle of complex family relocations. And while we can’t promise to take away all the stress, we have found that our accommodation provides the ideal stop-gap.
Some of London’s best schools on our doorstep
The English school and college year starts in early September, so from early July you’ll need to be actively searching for places.
Our properties, located in both Hampton Court and Claygate, sit in close proximity to prestigious Greater London schools and colleges including:
- Hampton Court House
- Danes Hill School
- Notre Dame School
- St Georges
- Kingston Grammar School
- Surbiton High School
- ACS Cobham International School
- Rowan Prep
- Esher Church School
- City of London Freemen’s School
- Box Hill School
- Epsom College
- Reeds School
- St Johns
- Guildford High School
- Parkside School
- Shrewsbury House
Competition for places is always high, but as you can see you’re spoilt for choice.
Why a serviced apartment is perfect for relocating families
The London property market is one of the most competitive in the world, and to find the right home at the same time as the right school, you’ll need time. Lengthy hotel stays with your family just aren’t going to offer you the comfort, flexibility or affordability that a serviced apartment can.
Having a fully-fitted kitchen, space for all of you to make your own, and the freedom and flexibility to come and go as you please will become essential. Our apartments offer you enough size to give you a genuinely homely feel – which is much needed if you’re moving here permanently.
And fundamentally, it will cost less. Lengthy hotel stays for a family in London will quickly become wildly expensive. Craven House offers the best of both worlds: luxury and comfort without breaking the bank.
You need to be in the right frame of mind when making these life-changing decisions for you and your children. And from experience, I believe that only a serviced apartment can offer that in the hustle and bustle of London.
