The Local Area Guide to living in Harefield

Located in the London Borough of Hillingdon, Harefield is a diminutive village perched on top of a hill in a picturesque setting. With Hertfordshire to the north and Buckinghamshire to the west, Harefield residents enjoy a semi-rural backdrop along with close proximity to all of the amenities of central London. The village is particularly well known for its local Harefield Hospital, which specializes in heart and lung transplants. The oldest building in Harefield is St Mary's Parish Church, which still retains many medieval details despite being restored in 1841.

Harefield is nestled on the edge of Colne Valley Regional Park, which provides the first area of countryside to the west of London. Residents can easily access its 27,500 acres of green spaces and parks, which offer guided walks, golfing, angling, and horseback riding. Further leisure facilities in the area include the Harefield Cricket Club.

Information about the local residents

The population of Harefield has increased 4.4 per cent between 2001 and 2011, with 7,399 residents living in the ward at the time of the most recent 2011 census data. It's the least densely populated ward in the borough of Hillingdon, with 3,008 households in total, which gives it a more spacious feeling than some neighbouring areas.

The majority of these households are single families, with the most prevalent housing types being houses or bungalows. There's a wide range of ages within Harefield, but the over 75s age category has seen the largest increase between 2001 and 2011, having gone up by 19 per cent. Nearly three-quarters of the residents are economically active, with many commuting into central London for work each day. Harefield Hospital is also a major local employer. Although 94.2 per cent of residents speak English as their primary language, there are over 59 languages spoken throughout Harefield, including Polish and Malayalam.

Nearby Schools

The Harefield Academy provides accommodation for up to 750 students aged 11 to 15, and as many as 250 students 16 and over. According to an Ofsted report from 2014, the school's strengths include a high quality of science education, with students achieving particularly well in this subject. Although overall the school still needs some improvement, according to Ofsted, the sports specialism has also had a positive impact on the learning experience and the percentage of students achieving five or more GCSE grades A* to C is increasing.

At the primary level, Harefield families usually send their children to Harefield Junior School, which has been judged 'Outstanding' by Ofsted and is known for its high standards of achievement. Shepherd Primary School and St John's Catholic Primary School are also located in nearby Rickmansworth.
