Have a potential to move near Latymer where one of our twins might get an offer. However, what would be a good school to think about for our other twin both private and state schools within the catchment area.

Hi,
Are you implying for your other daughter you need a less academic school? Or do you just want them in separate schools?
I know Palmers Green High is around the corner

The Latymer catchment is massive - most N, EN and several E postcodes. There's loads of places near by that have decent state and private schools. A few private ones are North London Collegiate, Highgate, Forest school, Bancrofts (may be on the edge), City of London. Is the twin male or female? I don't know state schools in Hampstead, Islington, Enfield area but Camden school for girls, Clapton girls, Mossbourne, Walthamstow girls are all decent state schools.

Thank you so much. They are girls. And looking at the less competitive schools.

@afewtoomanychoices Thanks for Palmers Green High School. I don't see a deadline for applying to the school. Is the selective criteria fairly less than other independent schools? Do you know?

Yes it is definitely less than the other schools mentioned, but still lovely and girls do thrive. Have friend with daughters there

Latimer is right next to the West London Free School which my son attends . It was founded by Toby Young . It is supposed to give private schools a run for their money

Alexandra Park School would be my choice. But surely you've missed the state school deadline for next year? Was it not October 31?

That's why I asked "which Latymer" - the OP is asking about the one in Edmonton, not west London.
