Our Story

“I founded this school in our home in Highgate over 40 years ago in 1977. It began as a small Nursery group of 6 children, two of them mine, but over the years grew in size so that new premises had to be found.”

The school is very much a part of my heart as are all the children.  Each child brings something unique and valuable to the school and they leave us with a real joy in learning.  Each child is nurtured in a friendly, stable and secure environment where the building of self confidence, self esteem and respect for others is a priority.

Choosing a school for your child is challenging with many different options available.  Finding a 'home from home' as it were, for your little one is something I  always wanted and  sought for my children.  Consequently, The Avenue  was born.
