These are options for dd reception - which is better option? Want most nurturing and acedemic. Any views/ thoughts greatly appreciated.

Phoenix. My two both went there (one girl one boy), it is a great little school, and the new head is clearly dynamic and keen. It's kind and supportive and also good educationally (not a pressurised pre-prep either). Only issue is for girls is that they do have to take 7+ and go elsewhere, Devonshire takes them to 11 doesn't it.

Thank you so much for your reply. Did you find the outdoor space and lack of space in general bothered yr children? Also do the girls go onto good schools? Thank you

Definitely Phoenix, most girls go on to south hampstead, some to city of london, highgate etc
They prepare the girls really well (or this is what a mum told me, I believe her)
