Krishna Avanti Primary School






Avanti School Trust & Kier Construction

Krishna Avanti Primary School is a new build, two form entry primary school in Croydon. It is a Hindu faith free school open to all, regardless of faith.

The school is the third Cottrell and Vermeulen has designed for the trust, of which includes the Krishna Avanti Primary School in Harrow, completed in 2008.

The Croydon school is located on a prominent site in Croydon and the leafy Waldrons Conservation Area. These conditions have strongly influenced the design.

The building features a linear teaching block, double height hall space and a roof top play deck.

The scheme received planning permission in March 2017 and commenced on site later that year in September.
