Post-doctoral family in London

I will be spending two years in London at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (Swiss Cottage) doing my post-doctoral research. I am from Brazil and my wife is British. We will be accompanied by our 17 year old daughter who will do the final year of school at Parliament Hill School for Girls (La Swap).
I did my doctorate at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and my wife did hers at the University of Warwick. She is currently working, from home, for a theatre company in Denmark.
We are excellent tenants (we rented in the area 2011-2015) and we are house owners so well aware of how to look after a house, garden, guttering etc and we also love animals should there be any pets.
