  • Educational excellence

At Avanti Hall School we celebrate each pupil’s individuality and deliver an educational journey from the age of 4 to 16 that promotes your child’s development, both academically and pastorally, to ensure confidence and ambition. Our philosophy is that education should provide each and every pupil with the core skills needed to achieve academic excellence through a diverse and rich programme of study that has holistic development at its core.

Through a knowledge rich curriculum, pupils engage with a variety of subjects to challenge and motivate them in their learning. To complement this, we take pride in our co-curricular enrichment, which includes Yoga, mindfulness, sports and outdoor learning. Each child at Avanti Hall School will explore their own identity and work to develop their individual potential. We work closely with parents and guardians to enhance aspirations for students and ensure that all children have the support they need to thrive at every stage of their school life.

Being located in an area of natural beauty allows our pupils to safely explore the world around them and grow in confidence and character as they do so. We have high expectations of our pupils, but we don’t want them to be afraid of failure – we understand that intellectual and personal growth are often the result of making mistakes and having the resilience to overcome challenges.

As a school, we pride ourselves on having a strong sense of community where everyone is welcomed. We provide an inspirational curriculum and develop exceptional teaching and learning to improve our provision. This is a fantastic time to join our school and become part of something special.

As part of the Avanti Schools Trust, Avanti Hall School pupils will work alongside their peers in schools in London, Birmingham and Leicester to collaborate and engage with projects that will enable each individual to become a successful global citizen and flourish in a rapidly changing world. Our students go out into the world with a sense of purpose, as well as academic achievement, personal fulfilment and the desire to make a difference.
