New Avanti Schools

Friday, August 24th, 2012

We are looking for families with children under the age of 18, or those who are expecting to have children in the near future.

Avanti Schools Trust is considering applying for new Hindu faith schools in several locations to open in 2014.

The schools facilitate children from all backgrounds and abilities on a journey of self-discovery. Our ethos is moulded around a unique personalised approach to learning, with the long-term happiness and fulfilment of the child at the heart of everything that we do. The schools have structured approaches to learning and questioning skills and a clear sense of the sets of knowledge and understanding that are central to informed, articulate and confident citizens.

We promote holistic, responsible lifestyles through a vegetarian diet, a curriculum that integrates yoga and meditation and a built environment that actively fosters environmental concern. Pupils are nurtured and cared for in a way that builds the foundation for their high academic achievement, exemplary character and wholesome sense of identity, set within an open and inclusive school.

By filling out a short questionnaire you will allow us to gather the information needed to demonstrate demand for such schools in your community.
