What is the best school in Hammersmith and Fulham


Published: 14/12/2016   Last Updated: 19/06/2017 13:31:26   Author: E. Finlay    Tags: What Is The Best School In Hammersmith And Fulham

When choosing a home there are many factors outside the property itself, the environment and it’s services can weigh heavily on any home buyer’s or parents’ mind. If you have children and are thinking of moving to Hammersmith or the surrounding West London regions, Chiswick, Fulham, Barnes, Shepherd Bush or Kensington you will be digging deep into what they have to offer your child’s education. West London has a wide choice of schools from Primary to Secondary education, state schools to private schools and schools that are setup for specialist requirements.

In the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham you have 25 State funded primary schools, 12 Independent primary and prep schools, 12 State secondary schools, 5 Independent secondary schools, 5 State special schools and 3 Independent special schools.
Which is the best for you and your child; leagues tables are available to measure the number of high grades per school and these give an indication but do they paint the whole picture. If exam results are your only concern then look no further:

Primary Education:
 St Augustine's RC Primary School or All Saints CofE Primary School both with 97% for 2016 via .gov.uk please note not all schools are ranked via this system.

Secondary Education:
The London Oratory School, with 88% (Grade C or better in English & maths GCSEs) please note not all school are ranked via this system.

Further Education 16-18:
St Paul's Girls' School, Latymer Upper School or The London Oratory School
School league tables and results are available here:

If choosing the best school for your children does not solely involve picking the best exam results but what the school has to offer the child, in terms of facilities and experience, then the picture changes. After all not every child is academically gifted and despite the best levels of care they may not achieve the dizzy heights of the Joneses. Success isn’t always measured by A grades, Sir Richard Branson and Sir Alan Sugar both celebrated businessman neither of which have A-levels. Finding schools that fit this alternative bill is not as difficult as it may first appear. Some state schools and the independent schools have some fantastic facilities, from teaching the arts to coaching a wide range of sports.

During the 2012 London Olympics and the 2016 Rio Olympics, over one third of the athletes were privately educated. This is quite surprising when privately educated Britons make up less than 18 percent of the population. However this doesn’t mean you should only send your child to a private school if you want the best sporting opportunities for them. Hammersmith and Fulham has a huge range of sports clubs from rowing and rugby to hockey and netball, where you will find very affordable opportunities for your budding champions.

Hammersmith and Fulham also offer a great deal for the next generation of creative talents. Theatres and arts clubs are on offer to maximise your children’s artistic potential. The William Morris society, named after the British icon of textile design and more, who lived and died in Hammersmith. This arts and crafts society often runs workshops during the school holidays helping to open creative avenues and inspire young minds.

In short, there is a broad range of schools in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham with varying amounts to offer your child. However if like the majority of us, you cannot write blank cheques, Hammersmith and Fulham have much to supplement those schools that fall short. The clubs and societies spread across the region are diverse enough to capture and inspire the next generations’ attention and imagination. It is also important to note, some independent schools, such as Latymer Upper, pictured above, have an excellent means tested bursary programme to encourage bright children to apply from less affluent families.

Below is a list of schools in Alphabetical order, divided up between State and Private or Independent schools.
