Why Buy Vauxhall? Education

Ideally situated in the world’s city of learning, Vauxhall is perfectly placed to enjoy some of the best schools and universities in the world. Read more and watch the second in our video series below.


Sitting at the heart of the world’s leading city of learning, Vauxhall places some of the finest and most historic public, preparatory and state schools on its doorstep. The city boasts four of the UK’s highest ranking universities: the London School of Economics and Political Science, University College London, Imperial College and King’s College. Three of these also appear in the Times World University Rankings’ top 25, giving London more top-flight universities than any other city.

Vauxhall’s central location as the gateway to the city and exceptional transport connections make the cream of the capital’s schools and universities quickly and easily accessible. Some of the finest private schools in London, as featured in the Tatler Schools Guide 2016, are just minutes away by tube: Falkner House (13 mins from Vauxhall), The City of London School (16 mins), Colet Court (21 mins) and Alleyn’s School (25 mins). Three nearby state schools feature in the current Department for Education performance table for Lambeth thanks to outstanding performance: secondary schools Platanos College (11 mins from Vauxhall) and Dunraven School (32 mins), and Henry Fawcett Primary School (16 mins).

All of London’s best universities—LSE, UCL, Imperial and King’s—are within 15 minutes of Vauxhall by Underground with Central Saint Martins and Queen Mary University of London also close by.

Vauxhall is also one of the best connected districts on London’s South Bank. Just one mainline stop from Waterloo, Vauxhall’s Victoria Line station allows fast, direct links with much of Central and North London, including King’s Cross and St Pancras International.
