Which Are The Most Successful Schools In RM6?
A rundown of the local primary and secondary school options in the Chadwell Heath area, including performance assessments, Ofsted ratings and GCSE results.
Chadwell Heath has become increasingly popular with families in recent years.

However, the secret is pretty much out and demand is now high in the area. Therefore, families who are considering the move should get here early in order to ensure that they are registered within catchment for some of the best rated schools in RM6.
