Halstow in Halstow Road is the one primary school in Greenwich judged to be “outstanding” by the government’s education watchdog Ofsted. It has a tight catchment area and demand for school places has pushed up house prices in the surrounding streets.

However, local parents also rate Meridian in Old Woolwich Road, and it seems that previously struggling Millennium in John Harrison Way is on the up.

The best performing local comprehensive schools are St Ursula’s (girls, ages 11 to 16) in Crooms Hill; Prendergast – Hilly Fields (girls, ages 11 to 18) and Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College (co-ed, ages three to 18) in Pepys Road, all judged “outstanding”. There's also Thomas Tallis (co-ed, ages 11 to 18) in Kidbrooke Park Road and St Matthew Academy (co-ed, ages three to 16).

The Greenwich Free School in Shooter’s Hill Road opened in September 2012 and there is a Steiner school (ages, three to 18) in Woodlands.

Other local private schools are: Blackheath High (girls, ages three to 18) and Colfe’s School (ages three to 18) in Horn Park Road, Lee.
