For many parents the decision to live in London, in close proximity to their work and with all the benefits that living in the City can bring, is tempered by the problem of where to educate their children.
With many of the top London prep schools having long waiting lists and the better State schools offering places only to those in increasingly small catchment areas, a move to the suburbs is often seen as the only solution, leaving parents with a long daily commute into the City, wasting valuable hours each day. In addition, people looking to relocate to the UK are often put off applying for jobs in the City because of the same problems.
As a direct response to the increasing number of applications being received from people looking to move away from the City for just these reasons, Riddlesworth Hall in Norfolk and Barnardiston Hall in Suffolk have introduced a service designed to bring the best of both worlds to people living in the City whilst having their children educated outside the Capital in the countryside.
Riddlesworth Hall, and its sister school Barnardiston Hall, offer a "London-Link" service where a member of school staff will meet the parents at London Liverpool Street and take on the care of the child(ren) from the parents. The children will then be taken to school, have a week there and then meet up with their parents at Liverpool Street again on a Friday evening at approximately 6.00 p.m.
For full details of this service please telephone the London-Link Co-ordinator, Mr Arvid Gundersen on 0777 55 82268.
