Hi, we are a family of 4 (with 2 young daughters of 7 and 3) looking to relocate from Asia to St.Albans.
Unfortunately we don't know the area and we have no many friends around in UK.
Can anyone please suggest us a nice area to live, particularly kids friendly?
We're looking to rent a 3-4 bedrooms house in the range of 1,500£ - 2,000£. Would that be a reasonable budget?
Regarding schooling: given that we can't enroll for any school until we'll be there, will it make any difference if we'll relocate during summer time before the new schooling year begin or winter time?
We're not familiar at all with UK schooling system therefore any help or suggestion would be appreciated as well as some good primary school names we may have a chance to be accepted or any useful link.
Any other information or suggestion would be truly appreciated.

Thanks to all in advance!!

Look on Rightmove. It has houses in your budget, and shows you schools nearby with Ofsted reports etc.

You might struggle to get a house very near a good school, but its worth a try.

St. Albans is very expensive, one of the most expensive locations outside Londond

get informed with this:


the area is lovely, but has terrible traffic and is very expensive. Think about how you will get to work and factor in those costs too.
