Welcome to Avanti Gardens School, a two-form entry community primary school in Fishponds, Bristol. Our school opened in September 2014 and joined the Avanti Schools Trust in 2019.

At Avanti Gardens, our three core pillars are visible in all we do: Educational Excellence – Character Development – Spiritual insight.

The staff team and I put children at the centre of everything: all decision making. Our mission is to prepare pupils to thrive beyond primary school. I believe a strong partnership between parents/carers, pupils and staff are paramount to an excellent education. We strive to work closely with the community and create a school that we are all proud to be part of.

The Avanti Gardens curriculum follows the National Curriculum, whilst being underpinned by the Avanti Way. Our curriculum is wide, rigorous and unique, taking full advantage our staff’s expertise and amazing on-site facilities. We support our children to become fluent readers, writers and mathematicians, thus ensuring that every child can engage in and enjoy the richness of our wider curriculum. We value children’s wellbeing as fundamental in their development – this is reflected in our timetabled yoga sessions each week for all pupils.

On behalf of staff and pupils, I welcome you to our community and hope the website gives you a flavour of our unique and aspirational school. If you would like to find out more, please contact the school office with any questions that you may have.
