Some of the best primary options include Quarry Hill Academy in Grays, Basildon’s Lee Chapel Primary, Hare Street Community Primary School and Nursery in Harlow and Southend-on-Sea’s Hinguar Community Primary. 

All of those schools are rated as outstanding by Ofsted, while the same goes for Southend’s high schools for girls and boys.

Transport links in Essex

The county council has promoted sustainable forms of transport in recent years through enhanced walking and cycling routes and schemes aimed at green travel. Bus, train and park and ride services are prevalent across the county, while you can also get excellent access to airports in Stansted and Southend, depending on where you live. If you have a car, the M11 runs through the west of Essex, while the M25 forms a section of the county’s southern border.
