Wrotham is a small village in the heart of Kent, surrounded by a scenic rural landscape and beautiful countryside with excellent (5 minute) access from the A20/M20 and close proximity to the A2/M2/M25/M26. Journey by road from nearby Bromley/ Dartford/ Bexley/ Orpington varies from 15-30 minutes. The local mainline station is a 10 minute walk from the school and is on the direct commuter line to Victoria Station in central London; this line includes stops at Bromley South. Wrotham is part of the Sevenoaks commuter belt and sits just outside of South East London. Recent house prices in Wrotham (April 2015) are typically lower than comparable properties in nearby South/ South East London postcodes, rental properties follow a similar pattern. This makes Wrotham and the surrounding areas an ideal place to live and work, particularly for first time buyers and those facing the challenge of rising house prices in London and its suburbs.
