The borough’s newest school is holding an open day in an effort to attract new pupils.

Avanti Court Primary in Carlton Drive, Barkingside is a Hindu school which is open to children of all faiths aged 4-11.

It opened its doors in September last year but is not yet full and in an effort to attract more pupils for this year’s September intake the school will host an open day on March 16.

Avanti Court currently has four reception classes with 20 children in each and a full year one class of 30 children.

In September the school says it will have 120 reception places and 40 spaces in year one.

Junaida Bana, the school’s deputy head, said: “It has only been six months but already the overwhelming majority of parents whose children attend the school have said that they are impressed with the teaching and learning that goes on here and that their children enjoy coming to school.”

The open day runs from 10am-noon.
