A Little Bit About St John’s Wood
St. John’s Wood was once part of the Great Forest of Middlesex. The name derives from its mediaeval owners, the Knights of the Order of St John of Jerusalem (Knights Hospitallers), an Augustinian order, which took over the land from the Knights Templar in 1323. After the Reformation and the Dissolution of monastic orders, St John’s Wood became Crown land, and Henry VIII established Royal Hunting Grounds in what became known as Marylebone Park, to the north of which lay St John’s Wood.
St John’s Wood was developed from the early 19th century onwards. It was one of the first London suburbs to be developed with a large amount of low density “villa” housing, as opposed to the terraced housing which was the norm in London up to the 19th century, even in expensive districts. Parts of St John’s Wood have been rebuilt at a higher density, but it remains a highly desirable residential district with the beautiful surroundings of near by Regents Park.
Situated in NW8, St John’s Wood is the location of Lord’s Cricket Ground, home of Middlesex County Cricket Club and the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), and original headquarters of the sport. It is also famous for Abbey Road Studios and the street Abbey Road, where The Beatles recorded, notably the Abbey Road album, the cover of which features the band crossing the road.
The High Street has something for everyone offering a wide choice of specialist independent shops for fashion, jewellery, art as well as an incredibly varied range of cafes and restaurants that cater for and perfectly demonstrate the international appeal of this north London suburb.
St John’s Wood has a range of schooling to suit every family. There are very good local state school, a range of private options and many international schools and universities are situated here.
Primary education includes Gateway Primary which has an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rating and George Eliot, Barrow Hill and Robinsfield are also popular choices. For secondary education, Quintin Kyaston and the King Solomon Academy both benefit from an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rating. For private education, parents choose between Arnold House, Abercorn Place, St Christina’s, St John’s Wood Pre-Prep and Francis Holland.
