Living in Harefield: The Local Area Guide

Residents in Harefield experience the best of both worlds: a rural setting combined with close proximity to all of the amenities of central London. This small village is situated at the top of a hill in the London Borough of Hillingdon, adjacent to all of the greenery of Colne Valley Regional Park. Colne Valley is the first area of countryside that you'll find to the west of London, offering 27,500 acres of parks, leisure facilities, and green spaces. With this on the doorstep, Harefield residents can enjoy activities like fishing, golfing, and horseback riding. There is also the Harefield Cricket Club and a high number of golf clubs in the area.

Harefield's town centre offers an appealing blend of modern and traditional architecture, and you'll see remnants of the region's past in historic buildings like St Mary's Parish Church. It still contains many of its original medieval detailing, although it was restored in 1841.

Demographics

Although Hillingdon as a borough has grown rapidly in recent years, Harefield is the least densely populated ward in the borough. This helps it retain its small, rural ambience despite recent growth. Between 2001 and 2011, the population increased 4.4%. At the time that 2011 Census data was taken, 7,399 residents lived within Harefield. The over 75s category of residents has increased the most significantly, up 19% between 2001 and 2011.

Of the 3,008 households recorded in Harefield, most are single families residing in bungalows or houses. Many residents take advantage of the location to commute into central London each day, although Harefield Hospital is also an important local source of employment. There are an estimated 59 languages spoken in Harefield, including Malayalam and Polish, but 94.2 per cent of residents consider English to be their primary language.

Education

Harefield is home to its own primary school, Harefield Junior School. It's highly regarded in the area and was ranked 'Outstanding' by Ofsted for the achievements of its staff and students alike. Alternatives in the area include St John's Catholic Primary School and Shepherd Primary School, both located in the nearby town of Rickmansworth.

At the secondary level, the Harefield Academy serves students starting at the age of 11. It can accommodate up to 750 students between the ages of 11 and 15, and as many as 250 from 16 and up. The Ofsted report on Harefield Academy was overall positive, but the school needs improvement in some areas. Its strengths include the quality of its science department and its sports speciality. The most recent Ofsted report also notes that Harefield Academy is in the process of improving, with the percentage of students achieving at least five GCSE grades A* to C on the rise.

Transport

Harefield is located at the intersection of a number of motorways, which provide access to London, Oxford, Luton, and other regional destinations. These include the A40, M40, and M25.

Amenities & Shopping

There's a good variety of independent retailers along Harefield's High Street. These include a pet shop, florist, and a Co-operative Food supermarket.
