At full capacity, Avanti Meadows will be a three-form entry primary school, with 620 children, and will continue to provide parents and pupils with the highest standards of education and pastoral care.

Since our first school opened in 2008, Avanti Schools Trust has grown in a considered and gradual way. Now, we are a family of 12 schools across the UK, serving over 4,500 children and young people and 450 staff.
