Mill Hill Area Guide
Mill Hill is a suburb in the London Borough of Barnet, England. It is situated around 9 miles north-west of Charing Cross. Mill Hill was in the historic county of Middlesex until 1965, when it became part of Greater London. Mill Hill consists of several distinct parts: the original Mill Hill Village; the later-developed Mill Hill Broadway (now the main hub of the area); and Mill Hill East. A further area at the western edge of the suburb, The Hale, is on the borders of Mill Hill and Edgware, and is partly in each.
Village charm and the great outdoors give Mill Hill family appeal, while commuters love the nearby M1 and the 20-minute train journey to St Pancras.
The area is popular with families looking for a pleasant and safe place to bring up children and has an impressive array of quality housing to both buy and rent, particularly in the mid-price ranges.
SchoolsMill Hill is a magnet for parents looking for good schools both state and private. Many of these, including Mill Hill School, a popular private school with both boarders and day pupils. Mill Hill’s educational reputation continues to draw people into the area. Nearly half the population is aged between 30 and 64 and a quarter of households have at least one child. There is a great choice, including a Church of England, Roman Catholic and a Jewish school. As such a wide section of the population is catered for, it’s not surprising that families want to move into the area.
At secondary level the schools are equally sought after. Although there are a number of popular independent schools, including a boarding school, state schools such as Mill Hill School and Copthall have excellent reputations. Some parents who can afford to send their children to an independent school choose not to. As an added bonus all the area’s secondary schools have sixth forms, allowing youngsters to stay in the same place for the whole of their education.
For pre-schoolers there is widespread provision, with several quality nurseries for working parents.
