Holland House School, located at 1 Broadhurst Avenue, Edgware, HA8 8TP, is an independent, non-denominational preparatory school for children from ages 4 to 11. The school follows a coeducational approach and serves as a highly selective academic institution with approximately 146 students. It is known for its emphasis on personal development, nurturing well-rounded children who exhibit enthusiasm, vitality, confidence, and polite-respectfulness.

With a commitment to pastoral care, the school boasts a strong focus on character building through the "4 Pillars of Holland House": moral, intellectual, civic, and performance virtues. The school also offers a digital library to parents, providing evidence-based tips to encourage children's success. It provides an academically rigorous education with an assessment for entry into the Reception Year, which helps identify pupils who will benefit from its high-quality learning environment.

Set in an urban major conurbation within the London Borough of Barnet, the school is not a boarding establishment and does not offer nursery classes. It has no special needs classes for children with statements or education, health and care (EHC) plans, but supports children with special educational needs in mainstream classrooms.

The school has a history that dates back to 1957, and it has been enlarged and refurbished since its inception, with up-to-date facilities and a relocation of the kitchen to serve an improved school library. The current headmistress is Mrs. Emily Brown, and the religious character of the school is none, offering a secular approach to education.
