Hello! I live near Peterborough so I might be able to help out. Stanground is not the nicest part of Peterborough but not the worst by a long stretch. Some streets are nicer than others, I think the newer parts are nicer. There are some nice villages within easy reach if you fancy somewhere more rural. Whereabouts will you be working?
There's a big secondary school in Stanground, I think it recently got funding for some new facilities. Some people nearby prefer to send their DCs to Sawtry (a village about 5 or 6 miles away). Not sure which is better because my DDs are not school age. Kings is a popular school but tricky to get into (if you are church-goers then it will be easier). Peterborough High is the only private school. Stanground also has a primary school, sure start centre and a council-run play centre that has an after school club.
There are a few supermarkets near Stanground (large Tesco and a new Morrisons) and it's not far to the city centre.
Jobs are pretty scarce around at the moment, there are a lot of manual jobs so it depends what area you're looking to work in. There's a big new hospital, that might have something going.
