Best Schools in Islington
There are many reasons why people choose to move to (or out of) a particular district or area, and living within easy reach of a good school is one of them. Proximity to high-achieving schools is often something property seekers are not willing to compromise on. For many parents, a long school run is neither feasible nor appealing. Some parents have a particular school earmarked for their child or children before they even reach primary school age.
If you are looking for the best schools in Islington or the nearby areas of Stoke Newington, Highbury, or Newington Green, then you are in luck. Islington Council has been recognised as one of the best education providers for primary performance in the country, according to a report from the Educational Policy Institute (EPI) thinktank.
If you have children of primary school age and you’re looking to move to an area where there are good primary and secondary schools nearby, Islington won’t disappoint.
