Most of Cricklewood’s state primary schools are rated “good” by the government’s education watchdog Ofsted. The following are judged “outstanding”: Our Lady of Grace RC (ages three to seven) in Dollis Hill Avenue and the Convent of Jesus and Mary RC (ages three to seven) in Park Avenue. Mulberry House School (co-ed, ages two to seven) in Shoot Up Hill is a private infants school; and Sakutu Organisation (co-ed ages three to 11) is a private Montessori School.

When it comes to state comprehensive schools the picture is more mixed. The best performing – and judged ‘good’ by Ofsted - is Hampstead School in Westbere Road. A new free state secondary school – the Gladstone School – is being planned by local residents; the hope is to open in September 2014.

The nearest private schools are: University College School (UCS) (boys, ages seven to 18) and King Alfred (co-ed, ages five to 18) in North End Road. There are also a number of private faith schools serving the Jewish and Muslim populations.
