About Avanti Hall School

The Avanti Hall grounds, on the outskirts of Exeter, offer a site of inspiring natural beauty.
Our main building, Thomas Hall, was built in the 1600s, with established woodland surrounding the main campus area. The building was part of Exeter University’s Duryard Halls of Residence for nearly 100 years before becoming a school.
