What choices of good state schools do we have if we move to New Malden? Burlington school is rated Outstanding. Are there any other good school in the area?

There is ChristChursh in the Groves...but only if you are C of E. Likewise Corpus Christi for Rc.
Coombe Hill is outstanding.

Are yuo already at school? If yuo tryto move after kids have started school yuo will find very limited choice if yuo move- In each town there will be one or two unpopular schools which will have places but not a lot else

No, haven't started school yet. DD is just over 2. Was considering moving to New Malden because of its convenience and relatively reasonable house price, but a little worried about school choices as we are not church goers. Maybe Ruislip would be better, with more school choices.

No real knowledge of ares but, when moving be v careful as the catchments can be really small, some as little as half a mile - and also, where we are, the catchemtns are not circular, they are weird shapes so you can live close but not be incatchment! So be v careful!
