Who lives in Croydon?
London’s largest borough is home to more than 338,000 residents, including nearly 85,000 young people - more than any other borough in the capital. Over a third of Croydon’s population and half of school-age children are from ethnic minority backgrounds and more than 100 languages are spoken by the area’s residents.
Croydon’s housing stock includes seven estates and the local population covers the full spectrum of socio-economic classifications. However, the growing affluence of London and the south-east mean an increasing number of young professionals and families are looking to set up home here, particularly in its more affluent areas to the south and west of the borough.
This is partly explained by Croydon’s great transport links. Lying on the transport corridor between central London and the south coast, Croydon is within easy reach of central London and the south coast.
Located in Zone 5, the town centre and surrounding residential areas benefit a tramlink to Beckenham and Wimbledon, two overground rail stations and 24-hour buses.
The town centre offers an excellent range of retail facilities, including the Centrale Shopping Centre and Whitgift Shopping Centre, which attracts more than 60,000 shoppers each week. A large IKEA can also be found in the nearby Valley Park retail area, which is easily accessible by road and tram.
When it comes to education, the Croydon area has a wide range of schools. St Mary’s Catholic Infant School is rated outstanding by Ofsted, while St Mary’s RC Junior School and ARK Oval Primary Academy are rated good. Ofsted ranks five secondary schools in the area as outstanding, including the Harris Academy Purley, the Harris Academy South Norwood and the Harris City Academy Crystal Palace.
Crime is lower in Croydon than it is across the whole of London. Out of 56,997 crimes reported to the Metropolitan Police in August 2014, just 2,283 took place in Croydon. This compares with the 2,379 crimes reported in the borough in August 2013.
Believe it or not, Croydon is one of the greenest boroughs in London with over 300 parks and open spaces covering 1,750 hectares. No fewer than 11 of its parks have been awarded green flag status.
