Avanti Schools Trust regret to announce that recent applications to open new schools in Leicester and Hounslow have not been approved. If approval was granted, these schools (Avanti Farm All-through, Leicester and Avanti West All-through, Hounslow) would have opened in September 2016.

The Trust were informed recently by the Department for Education that the shortage of school places in these proposed locations was not severe enough, but that we can consider reapplying in the future.

Our locally gathered data did show very promising demand for an Avanti school, as well as overwhelming expressions of community support, and for this reason we remain keen to develop project proposals for these areas.

We shall keep our Avanti Facebook Page and websites updated with news and developments and look forward to a positive outcome should we reapply.

With appreciation for your ongoing support,

Avanti Schools Trust
