Krishna Avanti Primary School


Krishna Avanti Primary School in Harrow provides a unique learning environment for local children, and is the first voluntary aided Hindu school in Britain.

Designed by Cottrell & Vermeulen Architects in collaboration with the local Hindu community, the school has space for 210 pupils and features a temple, shrine and a meditation garden.

The new building supports the academic, physical, social and spiritual development of children at the heart of the school's ethos.

Carefully designed spaces indoors and out provide fun spaces for exploration, quiet spots for meditation and reflection, and social spaces to eat, learn and play in.

The use of environmental features, such as rainfall recycling and allotments, has resulted in the school being awarded one of the highest environmental ratings of any primary school in Britain.
