Ethos, Mission and Values

Educational Excellence

An emphasis on independent thought and personal choice fans every pupil’s innate and emerging passion for learning. Our personalised approach provides tailor-made learning paths for all pupils. This motivates and enables all pupils to become reflective, articulate and independent thinkers, laying solid foundations for their future learning, vocation and self-fulfilment. Our approach is characterised by a mentorship and academic support system that is delivered in close partnership with parents.

 

Character Formation

Trust schools prepare pupils to take their places as loyal, responsible and broad-minded British citizens. Our ethos acknowledges that personal virtue, responsibility and a wholesome sense of identity underpin success in all endeavours. It nurtures conduct consistent with the universal virtues of respect, integrity, humility, courage, empathy, gratitude and self-discipline. Trust schools promote holistic, responsible lifestyles through a vegetarian diet, a curriculum that integrates yoga and meditation and a built environment that actively fosters environmental concern.

 

Spiritual Insight

The development of spiritual insight is at the heart of the curriculum and draws on the teachings of Krishna Chaitanya, which embrace a universal, inclusive approach to spirituality, aimed at rekindling a personal, loving and spontaneous relationship with the divine (Krishna). The curriculum offers opportunities to explore the philosophies and traditions of different faiths. Collective worship includes the following practices: kirtan, meditation, worship, reflection, song, prayer, and story-telling.

Avanti Schools Trust

The purpose of Avanti is to contribute to society through the systematic pursuit of human values and spiritual development.

The idea for Avanti began in 2003 and our first school was opened in 2008. Our vision was for a family of schools based upon our core principles of educational excellence, character formation and spiritual insight. We now have close to 2,700 students and 250 members of staff across our family of 7 schools (5 primary, one secondary and one all-through) with one more all-through school in pre-opening.

Avanti now has a proven approach to school development and improvement, with excellent pupil outcomes across our schools and capacity to support more schools. We have built first-rate centralised functions for finance, HR, project management, marketing and premises. Our wholly-owned trading subsidiary provides catering for our schools and to others.

Ever since Avanti was conceived, our aspiration has been to develop both faith and non-denominational schools. Our current schools all have Hindu faith-designations and the next exciting phase for Avanti is to develop our group of non-denominational schools, underpinned by Avanti’s purpose to contribute to society through the systematic pursuit of human values and spiritual development.

We also now look forward to working with other schools who are looking to join a thriving multi-academy trust and may wish to join the Avanti family of schools. You can read more about our ethos here. We would love to hear from you.
