Primary Schools in Edgware/Mill Hill

I was wondering if people had any experiences of Primary Schools in the Edgware/Mill Hill area:

Deansbrook - we are within the catchment area but don't know anyone who has sent their child there
Fairway - just outside the catchment. Have used the Sure Start centre there which is fab but don't know too much about the school.
Courtlands - again we are just outside the catchment area so doubt we'll get in. Have friends with children their who speak highly of it.

Holland House/St Martins - within walking distance of us but both seem small and lacking in much outside space.
Radlett Prep - a few mins drive from us but have heard great things about it and looks like it has good facilities.

Have discounted Habs and Grimsdell as the fees are eyewatering.

Many thanks

Thanks for replying.

Sorry should have said its for a boy so that rules out NLCS

Also we are not religious so that rules out the multitude of faith schools near us.

Hi Kate. Must live very near you (DD at a faith school). Not heard great things about Deansbrook. I know someone who teaches at Fairway and think it is ok. Holland House is not my cup of tea. It doesn't seem to have a playground and seems to sit reception kids at desks all day from what I saw of the prospectus! I know a few people with kids at Radlett prep who are very happy with it.

Forgot to say Broadfields school has a good reputation. I had a look around it as a back up if DD didn't get into faith school and I was impressed.
