Considering teaching and living in Croydon? This hub of South London is the largest borough in London by population.

Croydon Borough Guide

With an ever-increasing population, the borough has been identified for one of the largest urban developments within the capital due to it being an affordable area of South London with fantastic transport link to all corners of the city as well as to the wider reaches of South East England and Brighton. Famous throughout London as one of the city’s leading business and cultural centres, the borough has something for everyone.

Croydon will be home to a £5.25 billion redevelopment to create the Europe's biggest and best urban retail destination. The move will transform Croydon and reposition it as the best place to live, shop and work in South London. With this exodus of South West and South East Londoners venturing to Croydon the area will continue to transform and thrive. Exciting times lie ahead for this South London haven which will be upon us before you know it!
