A Little Bit About Surbiton
There is evidence that a settlement has existed at Surbiton since at least 1179. At the time, it was known as Suberton(e), (from the Old English south buritum’ or granary). Norbiton lies to the northeast, and is separated from Surbiton by the Hogsmill river. Before the arrival of the railway, Surbiton was little more than a farm. Maps from as late as the early 19th centruy show it as little more than a crossroads, but far nearer Kingston than the current station. It was at the base of the hill, not far south of the current Kingston University site.
Surbiton was formerly within the County of Surrey, but became part of Greater London in 1965 following the London Government Act 1963, together with many areas including neighbouring Kingston and Richmond. Surbiton possesses a mixture of Art-Deco courts, more recent residential blocks and grand 19th century townhouses blending into a sea of semi-detached 20th century housing estates.
Located in postcodes KT5 and KT6 Surbiton sits in the London borough of Kingston where commuters are attracted by it’s pleasant riverside location, its green spaces, its fast trains into London Waterloo and its convenient access to the M25 and A3. The fabulous Hampton Court Palace is easily reached, and Kew Gardens and Richmond Park are also close by. Neighbouring Kingston, with its excellent shopping, vivid nightlife and Thames boat trips, is just a walk away, along the river.
Almost all of Surbiton’s state primary schools do well and the following are judged “outstanding” by government education watchdog Ofsted: St Andrew’s and St Mark’s CofE Junior, Christ Church CofE, Tolworth Infants and Our Lady Immaculate RC.
Linley House in Berrylands Road is a private pre-prep school; Shrewsbury House is the local prep school. The council still runs grammar schools: Tiffin School and Tiffin Girls’ School both in nearby Kingston are judged as “outstanding”.
In spite of this competition for the brightest and the best, Surbiton’s comprehensive schools perform well. Holyfield, Southborough and Tolworth Girls’ are all rated as “good”. Surbiton High is a private school and Kingston Grammar in London Road is also popular.
