Duffield, Derbyshire. 2x Primary Schools?

Have name changed as don't want people in RL to know we may be moving.
If we do have decided on location.
There are two primary schools in the location; William Gilbert and Duffield Meadows. Ofsted reports very good. Any experience of the actual schools please? (niche area I know).
One only appears to have playing fields.
The admission criteria reads as decision essentially being distance from the school, is this correct?
Do the schools have plenty of places (being a small town) or oversubscribed?
Finally, are the school applications through the LA or schools direct?

Two and a half years later, asking the same question! Does William Gilbert have no sports fields at all? All I can see is a tarmac playground. If no fields, is there somewhere they go to do sport?

Any other thoughts on W Gilbert versus Meadows? Thanks

No sports field for William gilbert, but meadows do have playing fields. I think both school pretty full at the moment, so might be best to call and find out which has spaces rather than setting your heart on one over the other.
