Avanti Services

Avanti Schools Trust is a long-standing Trust with a track-record of successful school improvement and operations. Avanti’s skilled in-house team supports schools and nurseries across the country with their operations and governance. We have particular strengths in finance, HR, property and estates, ICT strategy and implementation, branding and marketing and procurement and contracts.

Our aim is to equip, support and empower Principals and Headteachers across the country with successful and secure operations.

The provision of centralised support functions is designed to empower school leaders with more time to focus on the core responsibilities of teaching, learning and standards. Benefits sought from the development of these functions include:

Empowering school leaders to focus on their core business of teaching and learning;

  • De-risking (e.g. ensuring consistent application of statutory policies and processes across the Trust).
  • Sharing and promoting best practice amongst groups of schools.
  • A higher level and breadth of quality and expertise than that which could be sourced by individual schools.
  • Financial, resource and knowledge economies of scale.
