The Swaminarayan School


BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha has traditionally laid a keen emphasis on children and education. Testament to this is BAPS’ The Swaminarayan School in London, Europe’s first independent Hindu school. Founded by His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj in 1992, the School has been progressively successful in securing both academic excellence and well-rounded personal development for its pupils.

The School regularly features in the UK’s top league tables. This year has been no different. On the basis of the 2007 Achievement and Attainment Tables for Key Stage 4 (pupils aged 14 to 16) published on 10 January 2008 by the Government, The Swaminarayan School in London was confirmed as the fourth best independent school in the country. The ranking, determined by the average points score per pupil which in turn is based on points awarded for each grade classification, reflects the exceptional performance by teachers and students working with an ethos inspired by His Holiness.

Additionally, The Swaminarayan School was one of only 107 schools in England in which 100% of the pupils at the end of Key Stage 4 achieved the Level 2 threshold – equivalent to five GCSEs at grade C or above, including in English and Maths – and amongst the top 20 achievers across England based on the average student score.

The results are also supported by the school’s extensive contribution to the community. As a result of the social and charitable work that the pupils have become involved with, they are equipped with the values as well as knowledge and skills to build successful future careers for a better society.

Congratulations to the pupils and staff of The Swaminarayan School for being amongst the top performing independent schools in the country.
