Avanti Schools Trust is a family of schools that share the ideals of educational excellence, character formation and spiritual insight. Our inclusive approach to spirituality means that students with or without a faith background are always welcome at all Avanti Schools.

We are a significant but focused multi-sponsor/proposer of high quality education for all with a growing number of schools, including VA schools, Academies and Free schools.

We support and assist our schools in key areas such as: character and ethos, quality assurance, school improvement, pedagogy and curriculum, purchasing and project management, and the training of staff and leadership.

The Trust is differentiated by having very strong community links, supported by grassroots parental demand, and positive working partnerships with the local authorities where we work.

Avanti schools are Hindu faith schools which welcome children from all backgrounds. The schools are operated by the Avanti Schools Trust and the designated religious authority is the iFoundation. Both the Trust and the religious authority are inspired by and draw upon the teachings of Krishna Chaitanya, part of the same religious tradition as ISKCON, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. This means that the nature of Collective Worship and Religious Studies will be broadly reflective of the practices and teachings of ISKCON. The Trust and religious authority are independent legal entities and they may choose to collaborate with ISKCON in instances which will benefit the Avanti schools.
