It's Our Staff That Make Avondale School

Avondale Preparatory School has a vibrant mix of staff that are passionate about children's learning.

A number have spouses who are involved in the services and this lends itself well for empathising with the many families that choose Avondale with service backgrounds. Currently this figure stands at 60%+

The bulk of staff have taught in both the state and independent sectors. Some also have international experience.
