Teaching Jobs in Luton
What is it like to live in Luton?
Luton’s location gives it the best of both worlds – excellent connections to the north of England as well as London, together with a close proximity to areas of outstanding natural beauty.
With the capital on the doorstep and the chalk hillsides of Dunstable Downs and the Chiltern Hills nearby, it’s no wonder that Luton is becoming an increasingly popular place to live.
The most desirable areas for property lie to the north of the town centre – spacious 1920s houses and tree-lined streets that recall Luton’s affluent post-war years. The apartments here make excellent investments, but cheaper modern builds in the town centre are less costly and closer to the stations.
Luton has many excellent schools, most notably Hillsborough Junior, which was rated as Outstanding in its last Ofsted inspection.
