Living in Tean: The local area guide

A prospering suburb in the Staffordshire countryside just 9 miles south of Stoke-on-Trent, Tean is a peaceful yet large village nestled in a quintessentially English landscape of wide, rolling green hills dotted with trees and lined with old low stone walls. A short drive to the southern edge of the Peak District, Tean is the dream of cycling and walking enthusiasts who adore English natural beauty.

Resting along the River Tean, the locality is actually split into two smaller villages of Upper Tean and Lower Tean, with Upper being a bit larger. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the town was built up as red brick factories and mills, which still line the high street and have been converted into flats and houses.

An old tape weaving mill in the village centre was Tean’s glory in the industrial era, now amongst those buildings converted into residences. The Heath House is a beautiful Gothic Revival estate home that lies just east of the village and is a popular venue for weddings and banquets.


Tean’s status as a prosperous residential area is evidenced in its residents, which consist primarily of families, working professionals and retired couples. The primary occupations are Managers, Senior Officials and Professionals. A low crime rate and living conditions better than about 80% of the rest of England lend to the truly peaceful environment.

The population is predominantly British, and primarily Christian, with three churches in the village.

Upper and Lower Tean are localities within the ward of Checkley, which is in the district of the Staffordshire Moorlands. The population of Checkley is around 5,700. The majority of these are economically active adults, around 70% being employees and nearly 12% self-employed.


The immediate primary schools are St Thomas’ Roman Catholic and the small, 85-pupil, Great Wood Community. Both of these perform well over the county and national average, with 94% of pupils at St Thomas’ achieving level 4 and 50% achieving level 5+ in maths, reading and writing, and Great Wood achieving 100% at level 4 and 36% at level 5+. A short drive away, Cheadle Primary School is another good performer.

Secondary schools are located in nearby Cheadle and Uttoxeter. The Cheadle Academy and Blythe Bridge High School are other options for secondary and sixth form education. Denstone College in Uttoxeter performs extremely well in A-levels, with 94% of pupils achieving at least 3 A-levels and 26% achieving at least 2 As and a B.

In the wider county of Staffordshire, however, there are many well-performing schools available for consideration, and with Tean’s excellent connection links, these wouldn’t make for difficult travel.


Tean is well-situated at a crossroads between Cheadle, Uttoxeter, Blythe Bridge, Rocester and Staffordshire. The A522 is the main road through the village, and only 10 minutes to either the east or west will bring you to the A50, from which the M1 and M6 can be easily reached.

In addition to roads, bus and rail services are also good in the area. Connections will take you east to Uttoxeter and Derby, and west to Stoke. Blythe Bridge and Uttoxeter, and Derby and Stoke are the main rail stations serving the area. The X50 bus of Wardle Transport and First Bus both have routes through the village.

Manchester and East Midlands airports are relatively close at only about 50 minutes away each, and Birmingham airport is 1 hour 10 minutes away.

Amenities and shopping

The village has a GP, several nurseries, three churches, a number of pubs and local shops. A wider range of shops is available in nearby Cheadle and Uttoxeter, including shops for clothing, home furnishings, cycling and sports goods shops. There are several farmers’ markets nearby, some monthly and some more often, selling fresh organic local produce.

Stoke-on-Trent is, of course, only 9 miles away, and amidst its lovely Victorian architecture and six towns, shopping and activities flourish. The Trentham Shopping Village is highly rated, with a beautiful outdoor layout, a garden centre and many diverse shops and cafes along its main street.
