The vision is for a school that nurtures each student on their own journey of self-discovery and is based upon the three key pillars of Educational Excellence, Character Formation and Spiritual Insight.

The School is open to applications from all and will have a dual specialism in Mathematics and Performing Arts. For this year’s entry, in the event of the school having more applications than there are places, 50% of the places will be allocated by distance and 50% by random allocation; this ensures that the School both serves the local community whilst also being accessible by those from further away.

In addition to a strong emphasis on the core subjects and performing arts specialism, the School will also offer: Ethics & Philosohy, values-based Humanities, leadership training, meditation and yoga.

The School has just appointed an outstanding Principal. Gareth Jones, an extremely successful and experienced Head teacher, has most recently served as the Head of Secondary School Improvement for Essex where he has been in charge of raising standards across the county’s 76 secondary schools.

They hope to announce the precise location of their site within days.

The School is being delivered by the Avanti Schools Trust, a subsidiary of the iFoundation, the education charity behind the highly successful Krishna Avanti Primary School on Camrose Avenue. That school, three years after opening, is already amongst the best in the Borough and recently delivered the highest Key Stage 1 SATS results for the area.
