Teaching Jobs in Bexley
The Family Hotspots 2014 declared Bexley the best suburb in which to bring up a child – an accolade which can largely be attributed to its excellent schools. There’s no denying that this southeastern borough’s small-town community feeling, low crime rate and affordable house prices within a half-hour commute of central London make it an attractive prospect.
Bexley is one of the capital’s greenest boroughs and boasts many beautiful parks, most notably the 75-hectare Danson Park in Welling. The suburb is also known for its wealth of independent shops, restaurants and cafes. Its most desirable towns – Sidcup, Bexleyheath and Crayford – have successfully resisted the typical retail chains that dominate most high streets, making them rich in character.
