We are extremely pleased to announce that our proposal for an Avanti Hindu faith school in Hertsmere has been approved! The school will include secondary and sixth form provision. We will be working hard now to identify a site and begin the process of planning the opening. The opening date for the school has not yet been set and will depend largely on how quickly we can progress with the site and building.

Local MP andSecretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Oliver Dowden said, 鈥淚 am delighted that the Department for Education have agreed that the Avanti Hindu free school will be relocating to Hertfordshire. This school will meet the demand for Hindu places both for my constituents in Hertsmere and the wider community. I have worked closely together on this for many years with Bhaktivedanta Manor and local councillors Meenal Sachdev and Morris Bright and I am thrilled that it has come to fruition.鈥

Cllr听Morris Bright, Leader of Hertsmere Borough Council, said,听听鈥淲e are confident this new inclusive faith school will quickly become an asset to Hertsmere, providing a welcome choice to families in the local area. Hertsmere is of course also home to Bhaktivedanta Manor, one of the most important Hindu temples outside of India and a great example of the Hindu community working to support听our听wider society.鈥

Cllr听Meenal Sachdev听(Portfolio holder for Community, Leisure, Health and Culture)听said,听鈥淲e are delighted to welcome Avanti to Hertsmere. It has been a long wait, but it will be well worth it. I听have been a keen supporter of this project听since I was approach by Avanti back in 2016. I now look forward to听seeing these plans progress and send my very best wishes to the team at Avanti.鈥
