Islington is a borough of stark contrasts. It has some of the most famous Georgian squares in London, a canal system and Highbury Fields – the largest and one of the oldest open spaces in the borough – while Islington North is Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s constituency.
However, Islington also has more than 150 council estates of more than 50 units, occupying some of the most expensive land in the world. It is the eighth most deprived local authority in England and the fourth most deprived in London.
Islington also has a large number of students living in the borough thanks to its two universities – City and London Metropolitan.
The Islington Council website lists no less 47 primary schools and 25 secondary schools in the borough. Seven state-run primary schools and five state-run secondary schools have been ranked Outstanding by Ofsted.
Schools rated by parents include Grafton Primary School and Highbury Fields School, Holloway School and Islington Sixth Form Consortium.
