The Houses at Avon House Preparatory School are named after famous people with a local connection. Emmeline Pankhurst’s daughter Sylvia lived in Woodford for many years.
Every year Pankhurst supports a local charity and this year they are raising money for Marie Curie.
Marie Curie is the UK’s leading end of life charity. They provide frontline nursing and hospice care, a free support line and a wealth of information and support on all aspects of dying, death and bereavement.
In previous years they have supported the National Deaf Children’s Society for which they held a sponsored walk at the Woodford Wells Cricket Club, the Docklands Sailing & Water-sports Centre Trust, Children in Need and ELHAP.
In the 2019-2020 academic year the Pankhurst House children have performed really well in sporting events, scored highly in inter-house quizzes and won the 2020 inter-house music completion with their rendition of ‘You Give a Little Love’ from the Bugsy Malone musical.
A word from the Pankhurst 2019-2020 Captain
My name is Ambika and I am Head of Pankhurst. I am hoping that everyone in Pankhurst enjoys the challenges we will have this year and we look forward to winning and celebrating them together! I have chosen a charity called Uniting Friends. They are a charity who organise activities for adults with learning difficulties. Adults who use their services can go to a day centre where they all meet and take part in an enormous range of activities that promote personal development and independence in a fun environment. By raising money for this charity, I think we can give them more opportunities and make their facilities even better, and most importantly, they will all have a big smile on their face and be even happier!
