Choosing a primary or secondary school for your child is a daunting task, but one that we parents all have to unfortunately meander through.  There are countless questions to ask, Ofsted inspections to read, forms to fill in, and schools to visit – so for those who are new to the process (or just need a refresher), we have compiled a directory of local schools to help you on the first rung of the ladder.

The area of Queen’s Park isn’t particularly clear cut when it comes to boundaries, crossing both NW6 and W10 – and is split across both Brent and Westminster councils.  Kensal Rise, just west of Queen’s Park predominantly uses an NW10 postcode and is in the borough of Brent.

With this in mind, we have included schools within a one mile radius of Queen’s Park itself – including both mainstream Comprehensive and Independent schools across both boroughs, plus further options of Independent schools a short distance away.

Mainstream primary and secondary admission deadlines in Brent & Westminster as below:

Primary school application deadline for entry in September 2018: 15th January 2018

Secondary school application deadline for entry in September 2018: 31st October 2017

For Independent and Free School admission deadlines, check with the individual school.
