Independent Inspection
Full Report - All Reports

Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

Avon House School in Woodford Green, in Essex, is a co-educational independent school for pupils of all abilities aged from 3 to 11 years. Currently 162 pupils are on its roll. Pupils come from a range of ethnic backgrounds, although very few are at an early stage of learning English. A very small minority of pupils have special educational needs or difficulties, mainly specific learning difficulty (dyslexia), and very few have statements of special educational needs. The school manages the Avon House Dyslexia Centre on the same site. The centre provides support for pupils from Avon House School who have dyslexia and also provides tuition and support for around 40 pupils from other schools. The school provides childcare for children from the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage to the age of eleven. Almost all (45) of the 49 children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are partly funded by the government. The children are taught in two classes: Foundation 1 (for children aged three to four years) and Foundation 2 (for children aged four to five years). The school aims to provide a ‘happy, secure environment [where] the emphasis is placed on each pupil being recognised as a valued individual’. In this way the school aims to develop each individual pupil’s ‘self-esteem, respect for oneself and respect for others’. It also aims to develop pupils’ ‘full potential in both academic and nonacademic fields with a strong moral understanding of truth, equality and humanity’ and to give pupils ‘life-enhancing strategies to build on as they progress towards the adult world’. The school opened in 1969 and was last inspected on 31 January to 1 February 2007.

Avon House School Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating

“Avon House School go the extra mile”

AH have been amazing since the pandemic began. The head teacher and her staff made a special effort to reach out to the parents to assure us that our children will be well taken care of despite the fact that they would not be in the regular school setting. They made every effort to ensure that the children's mental wellbeing was prioritised at every point. They also checked in on the parents to ask how home schooling was going and offered lots of support. I cannot thank them enough. Since getting back to school at the start of this year, they have made every effort to ensure that those kids who came back to school with 'gaps' in their knowledge were paid attention to. Mrs Campbell and the rest of the staff at AH, thank you for caring, we appreciate you all
