Avanti House is a very happy school where the behaviour and attitudes to learning, by all students are exceptional. Students have an established and meaningful ‘voice’ through the prefect system and school council. It is through working in close partnership with parents and students that the school has grown exponentially since its opening.
When Ofsted inspectors visited the school in July 2014, they reported:
“The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. They are, without exception, respectful and polite. New pupils are immediately included, and those with additional needs or who experience difficulty settling in are sensitively inducted until they feel safe.”
At Avanti House we deliver a rounded education to nurture confident and creative young people who will thrive in adult life. We put an equal emphasis on the highest academic achievement alongside the development of character and spiritual insight.
We offer students a diverse range of opportunities both in and out of the classroom. For example, we offer the Duke of Edinburgh Award and various trips including residential visits to Barcelona, Isle of Wight, Wales, Belgium, Rome and France.
Avanti House is part of the growing family of Avanti schools. Avanti schools are Hindu-designated faith schools. However, staff and students at Avanti House School do not originate from any specific faith background; applications are welcome from practitioners of any faith and from those of none. They will, however, be expected to be in full sympathy with the unique ethos and vision of the School.

· To implement agreed work programmes with individuals/groups, in or out of the classroom.
· The teaching assistant may also supervise whole classes occasionally.
· To provide pupil, teacher, curriculum and school support.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check and satisfactory references.
