It is an absolute pleasure, on behalf of the Trust, staff and students, to welcome you to our school.

Avanti Hall School is an all through school, based in the historic grounds of Thomas Hall in Exeter. It is our belief that education should provide each and every student with the core skills needed to feel confident in themselves in order to achieve academic excellence through a diverse and rich programme of study that has holistic development at its core.

Through a creative curriculum that includes Yoga, mindfulness and outdoor learning, each child at Avanti Hall 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.

My ambition is for Avanti Hall School to become one of the most successful schools in the country. We are working to build a strong sense of community, provide an inspirational curriculum and develop exceptional teaching and learning to continually 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 students have opportunities to work alongside their peers in schools in London and Leicester to collaborate and engage with exciting projects that will enable our students to become successful global citizens and flourish in a rapidly changing world.

We hope you enjoy visiting our website, and that you are able to find the information you are looking for. Please do contact the school office with any questions you may have about our unique and wonderful school.
