At Avanti House, education is about developing the whole child and providing opportunities for them to flourish within and beyond the classroom.

Avanti House is a very happy school where the behaviour and attitudes to learning by all pupils are exceptional. When Ofsted inspectors visited the school in December 2019, they reported: “Leaders and all staff place a strong emphasis on promoting pupils’’ character and their personal development. These are key features of the ‘Avanti Way’ and the school’s aims. Pupils develop a strong sense of self-belief and an understanding of respect and tolerance.

The unique school community is vibrant and dedicated. All staff and parents come together to secure the very best outcomes for the pupils within their care. The relentless commitment and high expectations staff hold for pupils is truly remarkable.
