Sometimes it good not to go on local reputations, because they are out of date. Look up Ruislip schools on the DfE performance table website. Then use the website http://www.how-to-choose-a-school.org/ to help you. I always recommend it, because it tries to be impartial.
Hi, I went to northwood school but have heard its gone downhill recently! Loved it myself. Apparently Hayden is a very good school now, queensmead is consistently ok and Ruislip high started good but has gone down slightly.
