Crouch End has plenty of popular primary schools although parents complain of small catchment areas. The following are judged “outstanding” by the government’s education watchdog Ofsted: Coleridge in Crouch End Hill; St Peter-in-Chains RC Infants (ages four to seven) in Elm Grove; St Gilda’s RC Juniors (ages seven to 11) in Oakington Way and St Mary’s CofE in Church Lane. The following are judged to be “good”: Rokesly Infants (ages three to seven) in Hermiston Avenue; Rokesly Junior in Rokesly Avenue; Weston Park in Denton Road and Ashmount in Park Hill Park.

Ashmount has recently moved to a new school building close to the Parkland Walk, a site which it shares with a nursery, a youth club and an ecology centre. Education minister Michael Gove has recently announced that the site of the old school on Hornsey Lane will become a new free primary school following a campaign by local residents to stop the site from being sold for housing.

The best performing comprehensive school is Highgate Wood (co-ed, ages 11 to 18) in Montenotte Road.

Highgate School (co-ed, ages three to 18) and Channing (girls ages four to 18) are two popular private schools in nearby Highgate village.
