Avenue House is situated on the “Field” side of the School near to the Health Centre, the playing fields and five other Houses.
venue House benefits from being on Field Side because the walk back from lessons to house really does make it feel like you are walking home. The homely atmosphere is carried throughout the house and you can sense it as soon as you walk through the doors. Avenue strikes a perfect balance between encouraging every girl to strive and reach her full potential, while also maintaining a fun and energetic atmosphere during free time. At it’s core, Avenue is a kind House, promoting kindness and compassion above all else, and that makes me very proud to be an Avenue girl.
The House encourages and celebrates difference making Avenue inclusive and accepting. The lack of hierarchy is another element of Avenue which
makes me incredibility proud. It wouldn’t be uncommon for an Upper Sixth girl and a Shell to be chatting in the common room together, making every single girl feel part of the team. The House staff are incredible and their support and care is unwavering, this support system allows all pastoral needs to be catered for, and enables us all to try new things and push ourselves while knowing they have people to fall back on and support them. Ultimately, Avenue House is a genuinely happy place with kindness at the very core.
I hope you come and visit us to see Avenue for yourself, you are always very welcome and you will be shown around by some of the girls. Ring the Admissions Team on 01865 319200 to make an appointment.
