Finchley is one of the most family friendly areas in the London Borough of Barnet. It has high performing schools, some really great open spaces, and a wide choice of homes that ranges from popular thirties semi-detached houses to modern flats. There are also some unique landmarks in the area including a bronze statue of Spike Milligan and La Delivrance, a 16ft bronze by Emile Guillaume that celebrates an Allied victory in the First World War.
There are numerous fantastic schools in and around Finchley, including highly rated state primaries, state comprehensives and grammar schools, and Woodhouse College sixth form. Families living in the area or considering moving to it should take the time to explore the options carefully and check entrance requirements.
