UK's first Hindu school 'outstanding'
A RECENT report, carried out by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) have given the UK’s first Hindu school a seal of approval on Tuesday (November 25).
The report commended the Swaminarayan School in Neasden, London on the ‘high’ standards of education and ‘excellent’ pastoral support offered to all its students from all ages.
‘Most of what the school provides is either good or outstanding and fully supports the school’s aims to develop pupils’ values, self confidence and way of life and to promote high academic standards,’ the report stated. The Swaminarayan School was founded in 1992 by His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj to provide education along the lines of independent British schools, whilst reinforcing Hindu culture and tradition. It is a non-profit making co-educational school for children aged two and a half to eighteen years.
Head teacher Mr Mahendra Savjani was pleased to see the results of the report reflected the ethos and principles on which the school was founded on, ‘The credit for this success goes to our teamwork – committed and dedicated staff supported by governors, hardworking pupils and parents who recognise the value of education.’
