    Default Good primary schools in inner west?

    Hi there,
    i'm about to move back to Sydney after 7 years in uk. Woohoo!!!

    A few things have changed namely the 3 little monsters I'm bringing back with me. My oldest is 5.5 and has started year one over here so I need to find a good primary school in Sydney inner west. My number 2 has started reception here but will need to go to pre school when we get back because of when his birthday is so any ideas on good pre schools also needed????
    Pare there any schools that have a preschool attached or located next door???

    Feeling like a foreigner at moment but so looking forward to being back.
    thanks heaps

    We will be looking to rent around where the schools are. We like almost all areas of inner west so are letting the schools decide.
    cheers

    Hi there,

    I don't know the inner west schools first hand, but there are some websites that show the results of the NAPLAN tests done in year 3 and 5, which give an indication of which schools are doing well academically. Have a quick look at this one, showing the results from 2011:

    Balmain Public, Summer Hill Public and Erskineville Public (in that order) are all in the top percentile.

    Of course, you will want to also consider other things about the schools apart from test scores, but hopefully this gives a starting point.

    Good luck!

    Annandale North has a good reputation and Annandale is quite a lovely suburb.

    Newtown North and Stanmore Public Schools are both up there in the top percentiles.

    ETA: My friend's little boy goes to Stanmore and says they're fantastic!
