The local area guide to living in New Addington

New Addington is a quiet settlement situated in the eastern corner of the London borough of Croydon. Dating back only as far as the 1930s, New Addington is a relatively young town and occupies an area that formerly consisted of farm and woodland.

Work on the New Addington settlement began just before the outbreak of the Second World War, with the intention of creating a brand new 'Garden Village'. The construction of affordable housing was a high priority for the settlement's developers.

Today, New Addington consists of two different wards which together form the backbone of this tight-knit community. These are the New Addington ward and the Fieldway ward. Both areas of the town are surrounded by the lush Metropolitan Green Belt, meaning that lovers of the great outdoors will never be too far from the picturesque countryside that carries on down towards Kent. Multiple golf courses also surround the town, including Farleigh Golf Club, Addington Palace Golf Club and the Addington Golf Course.

Information about the local residents

New Addington's 22,280 residents are proud of the place they call home and, as a result, the area has an incredibly strong sense of community that quickly embraces those new to the town. This strong community bond is largely a result of the fact that New Addington was a relatively isolated place until the arrival of Tramlink services in the year 2000. Tramlink services now allow greater ease of access for people looking to commute into central London for work.

Nearby Schools

Families looking to relocate to New Addington will find an abundance of schools awaiting them. New Addington is home to eight state schools in total - seven of which are at primary level. As would be expected in a town that only consists of roughly 22,000 people, the schools in New Addington are all relatively small in size.

The largest school in New Addington is Meridian High School - which was formerly known as Addington High School. Meridian High School is the only secondary school in the area, and currently has just over 800 students on its roll. A recent Ofsted report praised Meridian High School's staff and student morale, saying attitudes towards the school were incredibly positive from both teachers and students. Interestingly, Meridian High School is one of only three schools to lie on the Greenwich Meridian - hence its change of name from Addington High School to Meridian High School in April 2015.

As far as primary-level education goes, there are seven state-funded schools to choose from. The largest of these is Fairchildes Primary School, which scored an 'Outstanding' grade in its most recent Ofsted assessment. Fairchildes currently has just under 450 pupils on its roll.

Getting Around

Prior to the year 2000, New Addington was a relatively isolated community in terms of the public transport networks that were in operation at the time. Since the arrival of Tramlink services, getting to and from New Addington has become far easier. Tramlink services provide commuters with a connection to Wimbledon, travelling via central Croydon in the process.

Numerous TFL bus routes also serve as an alternative means through which the surrounding areas of Croydon, Bromley, Eltham and Selsdon can be accessed. While New Addington does not have its own train station, the nearest alternative is a mere 2½-mile trip away from the centre of New Addington in West Wickham.

Local Shops

Rather unsurprisingly for a town of this size, shopping in New Addington is rather limited in terms of choice. Those looking for the big name high street fashion brands will have to head towards central London, as the Central Parade in New Addington is home to only small independent shops and takeaway restaurants.

Supermarkets such as Co-Operative, Iceland, Lidl and Londis all have a presence in New Addington, meaning that residents are more than catered for when it comes to keeping their cupboards well-stocked for relatively little money.
