Moving to Stratford
Stratford in East London is most famous as the epicentre of the 2012 London Olympics and for its huge shopping complex. It has benefitted immensely from regeneration carried out over the past 15 years. It was originally an area of London that was in decline and now it’s full of new-build properties, three stations, the impressive Westfield mall and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Being located in Zone 2 and with extremely short journey times into Central London, property in Stratford is in high demand. First-time buyers looking to secure a property in Stratford should have a minimum budget of £225,000 for a flat. Both one and two-bedroom apartments vary in price dependent on location and finish. Apartments in the sought-after Glasshouse Gardens see prices upwards of £700,000. Family properties in E15 tend to be three-bedroom terraces which fetch prices around £500,000. Bump this up to £550,000 for four bedrooms.
Like many areas in East London, there is a huge rental market in Stratford. The majority is comprised of one and two-bedroom flats, with a sprinkling of terraced homes. Due to the variety of properties, from cosy one-bed flats in converted houses to luxury penthouses, renting can vary between £850 PCM and £4500 PCM.
Schools in Stratford
Stratford has a number of primary schools, many of which are ranked ‘good’. Park Primary is a popular choice with parents, as is Colegrove, Manor, Ranelagh, Maryland, and Portway.

St Bonaventure’s is a boys-only school for those aged 11 to 18 and St Angela’s Ursuline is the female counterpart.
