Matt Barrett

Mr Matt Barrett joined the Governing Body in 2016 and became Chair of Governors in 2024.

Matt is a Solicitor, Mediator and Notary Public and owns his own business Barretts Law based in Buckhurst Hill.

Whilst his professional background lends itself to assisting with legal and regulatory compliance, at Avon House Preparatory School, Matt takes a particular interest in the range of extra-curricular activities provided by the school.

Matt firmly believes that, whilst the school rightly prides itself on academic performance, each pupil can only reach their full potential if they are enjoying additional sporting, musical or dramatic activities.

Matt’s responsibility as Governor is Legal, he is also our Parent Governor.
