How do I enrol my children at UK schools?

Firstly, you will need to find somewhere to live and then you must approach the local authority to find out which schools fall within your catchment area. You will be allocated a place within one of these schools based on the current number of enrolments.

Do I need to buy a car?

If you are living in London, no way, the public transport system in London is good enough, and well connected. Also, there is the Congestion Charge to worry about as well as city traffic! If you are looking to live in a regional area (anywhere but London), depending on how rural you go, buying a car could be worthwhile. Second hand cars are fairly cheap to buy – £500 would get you a great little run around! You then need to think about car insurance and road tax.
