Former primary schools

Until the 1990s, there were two primary schools operating -- St Leonard's Catholic Primary School, and, Naremburn Public School -- both on Willoughby Road. The Catholic school shared the same site as the adjacent Catholic church, and, the public school was located opposite on Willoughby Road. Changing demographics and corresponding lack of demand led to both schools being closed within five years of each other. The former Catholic school is now a creative arts learning centre. The former public school is now a housing development.

Bus routes 257 from Balmoral and 343 from Sydney CBD travel through Naremburn to Chatswood, with stops located along Willoughby Road.

The closest railway station is St Leonards railway station on the North Shore, Northern & Western Line of the Sydney Trains network.
