Starting School in Camden 2022

Camden has some of the best primary schools in the country – and all are rated 'good' or 'outstanding' by Ofsted. Parents can apply for reception places until 15 January 2022.

Education in Camden is dynamic, collaborative and creative and the Council has continued to invest in improving our school buildings and facilities through the Community Investment Programme.

The borough's latest (2019) test results for 11-year-olds showed that 73% of Camden pupils achieved expectations in the combined measure for reading, writing and maths - well above the national figure of 65%. (Note: the 2020 and 2021 tests were cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak).

Camden primary schools also offer a huge range of extracurricular activities - with access to world-class venues and institutions on their doorstep, ranging from the British Museum to the Francis Crick Institute.
