Krishna-Avanti Primary School
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. It will be the third school Cottrell and Vermeulen have designed for the trust, Krishna Avanti primary school in Harrow was completed in 2008.
The Croydon school is located on a prominent site, straddling busy, built up 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 school will be used by the community out of hours.
The scheme received planning permission in March 2017 and is due to start on site in May this year, with a planned opening date in September 2019.
