I have checked and really haven't seen anything yet. I am thinking of taking a job in Luton England and I am trying to get a sense of what it is like.
I have seen one posting of someone try to leave Luton but that is it.
I am trying to get the cost of living and about the school system for 10 year old.
If anyone could help me answer a few questions that would be great!!!

Well Luton isn't the prettiest or nicest place, it's fairly poor compared to nearby areas BUT there are excellent, and very frequent links to London and Cambridge ( a very nice city).

House prices like everywhere else in the UK are horrendous as it is such an easy commute to London and it is a very multi -cultural place with a high proportion of Asian people ( India and Pakistan).

Because of Luton Airport you would also have the advantage of using very cheap budget airline flights to Europe which is great.

The area around Luton is nice too, pleasant countryside and many historical homes etc...

I personally wouldn't want to live in Luton but outside it might be nice though.
Try the link below for all useful stuff like house prices, crime rates, schools etc.. You'll have to register though but I think it's free.

The cost of living in England overall is extremely high. How much would you be making?

Try Find properties to buy, homes to rent, overseas houses and new homes on rightmove.co.uk to get an idea of real estate costs.
