Avanti House, Wemborough Road, Stanmore, HA7 2EQ

Avanti House is a high achieving 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 April 2018, they reported:

“Through working as a team and developing shared culture of high expectations, you and your leadership team have created a learning community that pupils say ‘feels like a family’.” Ofsted 2018

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.
  • To lead intervention clubs with students.   

The DEADLINE for applications is midday Sunday 1st September 2019

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check and satisfactory references.
