Moving to Wellingborough
Like many commuter hubs, Wellingborough has a vast mix of properties; from estates full of family properties, to new developments and many Victorian terraces. Many of the newer developments around the railway station are popular with first time buyers due to their affordability and location. Two-bed flats start at around £110,000 and three-bed semis can be snapped up for under £170,000. Northampton Road is rich with 30s properties which start at £180,000. If you are after Victorian homes, head to Hatton Park with a budget of at least £200,000. The Gleneagles Estate is a popular development with a number of detached homes available for just above and below £230,000.
The rental market is buoyant in Wellingborough and one-bedroom flats fetch a minimum of £410 pcm, rising to £525 for a two-bed close to the station. Smaller terraced homes are upwards of £500 pcm, with family terraces starting at £625 pcm. Similarly, three-bed semis also start at £625 pcm but jump to £750 pcm for the larger and beautifully decorated detached homes.
Schools in Wellingborough
One of the most sought after schools in the area is Wellingborough School, a co-educational day and independent school for ages three to 18. The school only began accepting girls in the late 1970s and is ranked ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.
In terms of popular primary schools, The Avenue, Redwell, and Stanwick are the top three. However, Little Harrowden, Wilby CofE and Irchester also fare well. For secondary facilities, Wrenn Academy (complete with sixth form) and Sir Christopher Hatton Academy are the most local to the area. Wrenn Academy did not achieve a particularly good report during their latest Ofsted inspection and ‘requires improvement’ but safety and behaviour of the students is ‘good’. However, Sir Christopher Hatton is ‘outstanding’.
