Prior to the founding of schools by the I-Foundation, Hinduism was the only major world religion which did not have a dedicated faith school in the UK. The I-Foundation founded the first Hindu faith school in London to be funded by the government. The Krishna Avanti school opened in February 2010. The organisation has since opened additional Hindu faith schools, with more schools planned for development.

The idea for Avanti began in 2003 and our first school was opened in 2008 with its purpose to contribute to society through the systematic pursuit of human values and spiritual development.
