Avondale Preparatory School 1923- 2023
Celebrating 100 years of service

Welcome to Avondale Preparatory School

We are a family- run preparatory school for boys and girls aged 2-11 located in a rural village just 3 miles from Stonehenge.

Head's Welcome

Stuart Watson

Your child’s happiness is KEY to their education; the moment you (as a family) set foot in the door, you will experience our friendly, homely feel that sets us apart. I trust that our website will give you a good insight into what makes Avondale Preparatory School such a special place. Whilst our website and prospectus can give you a taste of our learning community, I would encourage you to arrange a visit to gain a wider perspective of who we are; I should only be too happy to show you around and share with you the opportunities we can offer your child.

The Avondale Way

Confidence | Creativity | Community

At Avondale we prepare our children, not only for the next stage of their schooling, but for life beyond. Our pupils are provided with the guidance and support to become confident, responsible individuals with the resilience and integrity to be the best they can be.

The Arts

The Arts are essential to the curriculum. We value the confidence it instils, the teamwork it develops and the fun it allows.


Sport at Avondale is an integral part of the children’s lives and plays an important role in their development.


The wide range of opportunities on offer at Avondale stretch far beyond the classroom.

  • Building

    Avondale is a supportive and nurturing environment, which is committed to understanding and embracing the character and strengths of each and every child.

  • Inspiring

    Avondale aims to develop individual all-round achievement by providing a wide variety of opportunities, allowing children with varied interests to shine.

  • Strengthening

    From the moment your child joins Avondale, they become an important part of our vibrant school community. As an extremely welcoming family school, we ensure every child has the individual support and best possible care throughout.
